Your motorhome likely travels considerable mileage - after all, road trips are what they're designed for. But the more you drive, the more risk you have of your motorhome's grille becoming potentially damaged. A damaged wire mesh grille isn't pleasing to look at but - more importantly – damage can also limit the way the grille functions.
Your grille is located right at the front of the motorhome, so it's going to absorb the worst of any impact that you have. In a large vehicle such as a motorhome, it's easy to damage your grille through little knocks here and there when you're trying to park. Even small bumps can have an impact.
What Causes Grille Damage?
Another key way motorhome grilles become damaged is through the build-up of dust, dirt, and debris. The grille is designed to stop anything of significant size from entering the engine bay, but unless it's regularly cleaned those small bits of dirt are going to build up and potentially limit the effectiveness of the grille.
Another aspect to consider of the grille's location at the front of the motorhome is that it's going to be a magnet for stone chips, small rocks, and other debris that's kicked up from the road. If you're following a vehicle, the wheels can kick all manner of things into the grille, damaging it over time.
If your grille is damaged, you may consider replacing it with a factory item from the manufacturer. The problem here is that you're expected to pay considerably, and you don't get a sturdy item in return. Why should you pay all that money to just get more easily-damaged, flimsy plastic in return?
What To Replace Your Grille With?
This is where custom grilles make much more sense, as a custom made grille can be created using much stronger materials, yet still offer the snug fit of a factory item. Metal grille mesh, for example, is going to offer a lot more resistance to incremental damage than stock materials.
Going to the effort and expense of a factory replacement grille isn't a wise investment if it's just going to be easily damaged again. Custom mesh grilles are made to exacting specifications, which make them more resistant to damage, more efficient at what they do, and much more of an attractive component.
