With the average van costing around $50,000 one of the most frustrating thing for Aussie Caravanners and Travellers is having the front of their shiny new caravan, trailer or boat damaged with unsightly dings and stone chips. How often do you hear that someone’s travel experience has been set back by stones bouncing back and smashing the back window or tail lights of their 4WD or towing vehicle?
To help protect your investment, Busy Bee Brushware has developed the 4WD Stone Strip to assist in damage prevention while towing. It acts as a secondary line of defence against stones and bounce-back.
Our 4WD Stone Strip is a Stone Guard brush system set into a sturdy plastic (HDPE) backing (45mm x 25mm) that can be mounted under the vehicle, or on an extended tow bar hitch of your 4WD or towing vehicle via a metal bracket. Our unique bristle design of our brush strip allows for greater airflow and less drag than traditional mud flaps.
The 4WD Stone Strip comes in 3 standard lengths, 1200mm, 2000mm, 2400mm, and you can chose your brush trim length from 150mm to 400mm.

We recommend you contact your local 4WD after market specialist, trailer specialist or engineer/fitter who could give you some advice as to the best way to fit to your vehicle.
A couple of tips we can give you:
- When measuring the trim length that you need, when we refer to Brush trim, that is the exact length of the bristle. You will need to add the length of the backing to that measurement when considering overall length.
- Most customers feedback is that the brush can be mounted with anywhere from 100mm to 200mm clearance from the road.
- Remember this is a plastic bristle brush, so needs to be mounted away from the exhaust pipe. Both the heat of the exhaust pipe and the hot fumes that come from it can melt the bristles.
- The 4WD Stone Strip can also be cut into pieces and mounted under the caravan as a secondary protection zone for your caravan’s pipework.
