Busy Bee Brushware has developed the ROCK OFF® Towing Brush Strip to assist in damage prevention while towing. It acts as a secondary line of defence against stones and bounce-back.

The most frustrating thing for Aussie Caravaners 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?

What is it?

Our ROCK OFF® Towing Brush Strip is a 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 (not included). Our unique bristle design of our brush strip allows for greater airflow and less drag than traditional mud flaps.

The ROCK OFF® Towing Brush Strip is proudly licenced with the Australian Made Campaign official logo, be wary of inferior imitations.

Comes in 4 standard lengths, 1200mm, 1500mm, 2000mm, 2400mm, and you can chose your brush trim length from 150mm to 400mm.

Fitting your ROCK OFF®

A couple of tips we can give you:

  • The backing of the brush is made from heavy duty plastic, however it does not have a grain so will need a Metal Angle bracket or C channel for structural support, particularly when you are mounting onto the back of your vehicle.  Without the structural support, you may experience vibration or shuddering at higher speeds.
  • The area on the backing of the brush that is above where the tufts are stapled can be drilled so you can bolt the brush to the Metal structural support.
  • Measure the overall drop from where you plan to mount the Brush, take off 100mm for clearance to the road, then take off 45mm for the backing of the brush.  That will be the “brush trim length” that you need to go with
  • 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 distort the bristles.  If you can mount the brush under the exhaust or behind the exhaust that is the best option. We recommend you contact a local exhaust specialist for advice.
  • The ROCK OFF® Towing Brush Strip can also be cut into pieces and mounted under the caravan as a secondary protection zone for your caravan’s pipework.  Mark the area of the backing where you wish to cut; using pliers remove one of the brush tufts underneath and that will give you sufficient clearance to use a saw to cut the backing.

If you are not sure of how to fit your ROCK OFF, 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.  

Stone Guard for Caravan

Protect Your Caravan: Why Should You Invest In ROCK OFF?

At Busy Bee Brushware, we know our customers adore their campervans, caravans, and boats. The last thing they want or need is rocks and stones bouncing off the front of the vehicle, resulting in ugly scratches, dents, or broken lights and windows. We knew someone had to do something about the issue, so we decided to design and develop ROCK OFF, Busy Bee Brushware’s patented solution to damage prevention. Keep reading about our innovative stone guard for a caravan to figure out whether or not to invest in ROCK OFF.

Signs You Might Need a Stone Guard for a Caravan

It’s only natural to want to protect your vehicle in any way you can. Chances are you keep your caravan or campervan parked in a garage, shed, or undercover when it’s not in use, so why wouldn’t you invest in its protection when it’s on the road? Here are a few signs you might benefit from a camper trailer stone guard.

  • If you’ve ever had to stop your trip due to damage. There is nothing worse than stopping mid-journey to deal with a broken window, headlight, or tail light because a stray rock has wreaked havoc. ROCK OFF caravan stone deflector prevents these unwanted mishaps from occurring, allowing you to enjoy your holiday without worrying about your caravan.
  • If your caravan is incurring superficial damage. If you’re sick of arriving at your destination and seeing dents and scratches on the front of your caravan, ROCK OFF caravan stone protection is the answer for which you’ve been searching.
  • If you’re looking for extra protection on the underside of your caravan. ROCK OFF can be cut into pieces and mounted on the bottom of your caravan to protect pipework and mechanics under the vehicle from stones and debris.

What Makes The ROCK OFF Stone Guard For Caravans Different From Mudflaps?

There are a few critical differences between ROCK OFF stone guard for caravans and traditional mud flaps.

  • Less drag. ROCK OFF’s brushes are far lighter than mud flaps, allowing greater airflow and creating less drag.
  • Absorbs impact. Mudflaps tend to bounce stones off in unpredictable directions, whereas ROCK OFF’s bristles absorb the impact of the rocks, taking the force out of them.

ROCK OFF caravan stone guards is also different from spray suppressants. Spray suppressants are traditionally found on trucks, trailers, and buses. They’re designed to reduce the amount of water picked up by trucks, thereby improving visibility for other road users. ROCK OFF camper trailer stone guard has softer bristles, more flexible backing, and is far stronger than spray suppressants as it was developed to absorb the impact of rocks.

Tips for Installing the Stone Guard for a Caravan

While we recommend going to a mechanic, car specialist, or fitter to help you attach ROCK OFF caravan stone deflector to your vehicle, we have some tips for those wanting to try it themselves.

  • When Busy Bee Brushware refers to ‘brush trim’, we are talking about the exact length of the bristle. So, when measuring for length, you’ll need to take into account the brush trim and the length of the backing.
  • Make sure to mount the brush anywhere that has 100mm to 200mm clearance from the road.
  • As the plastic bristles on ROCK OFF’s stone guard for caravans aren’t heat resistant, you’ll need to mount the brush away from the exhaust pipe. Failure to do so will result in distortion of the bristles and inconsistency in regards to effectiveness.

    The process was quick and easy, delivered to my door in WA within 7 days and very easy to install. Will see how they go on the road test next week.

    I’ve purchased Rock Off to help protect the underside of my caravan from stone damage as I expect to undertake some pretty serious outback journeys in the near future. Whilst I have Stone Stomper to protect the front of my caravan, that product doesn’t necessarily reduce stones from damaging under my van and this is where Rock Off will assist. Customer service with the Busy Bee Brushware team was excellent and the product was very easy to install under my caravan using a length of angled aluminium from Bunnings.

      Hi Wayne

    I’ve just purchased my 2nd Rock Off Towing Brush after doing a trip to the Cape. We found the Brush Off one of the best purchases we made in regards to protecting our $100000 Caravan. We travelled with a friend who had a very similar van without the Tow Brush and he couldn’t believe the difference between his van and mine after our return. It really does protect not only wiring and plumbing but also the tanks, chassis and underside of flooring. We are now going to do a trip on The Gibb River Rd so I’ve just added another Brush Off to the rear of the van for even further protection. It’s a very small price to pay in helping protect your investment not to mention avoiding being stranded in the middle of nowhere with a breakdown. I can’t recommend this product highly enough… it’s a very well made and the service from Busy Bee is second to none. Happy Travels everyone

    Can the Rock Brush be fitted to a Landcruiser 200

  10. Ian (verified owner)

    Service was great
    On a trip now to Birdsville. Been on the road for a couple of weeks. The road from Windorah to Birdsville is unsealed and very well worn. I found that the BusyBee was more than at its limits. The front of the caravan was pelted by stones. It had a make shift mad flap on last time I was out here and I believe it did a better job. Have taken some photos of the brush before we left home and during the trip. Still got 2 more weeks on the road 🤞

    • Andrea Frier

      Hi Ian
      Thanks for your comments and feedback. It sounds like it must have been a rather rough journey. We would really appreciate your photos of the setup and the van when you have completed the trip.
      Thanks and regards

    Great product, have been using on my Ute to protect my tool trailer and it works great. I have on several occasions found rocks the size of large marbles actually caught in the brush, so has saved them from hitting my trailer.

    Installed the rock off brush to my camper trailer prior to my trip to Birdsville as there was many dirt/ gravel roads to cross. There was no damage to the under side of my camper. A few people asked about the product as they have never seen one. Would not hesitate to recommend or purchase a new one when I sell my camper and by a ban

    • Dearna Edwards

      Hi Mark,

      We hope you enjoyed your trip to the Big Red Bash. We are so glad that you were happy with the Rock Off and we hope that you enjoy many more trips.

  16. TIM (verified owner)

    I purchased the rock off Towing strip and fitted it under my off road caravan .
    Combined with the stone stomper I had
    very minimal stone damage after 2000 kms of gravel.
    The brush strip worked a treat . I had it a bit short on one side of van and the difference could be seen on the side step into the van. One half was pitted with stone chips and the other half still had shiny black paint.
    I highly recommend this product and this business. Great product and even better service

    • Dearna Edwards

      Hi Tim,
      Thank you very much for your kind words and we are glad that you are enjoying the Rock Off.

    Installed a 2m x 40cm brush just behind the A frame of our van. Tested it out on plenty of gravel roads on our way to the 2021 Big Red Bash at Birdsville. Very impressed with the brush and have suffered no noticeable damage under the van. I have ‘sold’ a few along the way too. Well done guys! Great product.

    Very easy to purchase. Fantastic service and fast delivery. This product is so easy to work with and design an easy-fit system to my F250. The finished product looks so professional. It took only a day to fabricate the bracket and fit and it’s on or off my ute in a few seconds. I’ve already had a number of people ask me about it and it’s only been finished a month. Thank you to all the team at BusyBee Brushware.

    Firstly great service.
    Fitted the brush to my Ranger Wildtrak with the width out to level with the widest part of the standard mudflaps, I have the 150mm brush which ends up with about 100mm ground clearance. I added a vertical rubber 300mm wide mudflap at each side to catch anything that may go above the brush. I happened to travel on a wet dirt road (without the van) which showed how much the brush and the vertical mudflaps stopped, they were both covered in mud about the width of the tyre. It is secured with 2 U bolts that remain on the tow bar even when the brush is removed by undoing 2 nuts, I have also fitted an exhaust pipe extension and taken out about 80mm of bristles. Very happy with the product, works extremely well.

    • Dearna Edwards

      Hi Haydn,
      Thank you very much for your kind words. We are so glad that the Rock Off works well for you and hope you enjoy many more travels with it.
