I’ve been looking at this idea for a while. Protection is a big factor. I think this is a good design and product.

Just need to figure out how to mount it to whatever coach your driving and how much gap between the coach and bumper.

I wrote to Herd inquiring if they would modify one to fit the Bluebird frame. Business is good, so they aren't interested in one-off modifications at this time. I'm okay with that. I need to do some Internet searches to see what the dimensions are for the mount locations on the trucks that Herd does make guards for. If one is similar we may be able to make our own mounting points and just use an off the shelf guard.

I do still like the idea of using receiver hitches and the energy absorption inputs from SuperBumper (really just high density rubber bumpers inside a hitch mount that can slide in the receiver).

If anyone wants to add some buffers to absorb some energy to your mount.
I heard back from SuperBumper:
Quote:
We do sell and energy absorbing kit for $99.95 with $10 shipping or two kits for $139.95 and free shipping. Picture of kit below.

But right now we’re in Florida setting up another distribution site and won’t be back in Minnesota until mid to late April and we don’t have any kits here.

This kit gives you everything to need. All you have to do is weld on to the end what you want to put there.

We have spanned a distance with two kits so what you’re doing is pretty easy…I just don’t have them here in Florida.
