Vinyl Tarp Material

Truck Tarp Covers  …Since I am the “Tarpguy” it seems appropriate to have at least a couple of blog posts discussing the actual “tarp” or “canvas” that covers and contains the load.  In a previous post, I suggested that the mechanics of the tarp system is the heart of the system and that the tarp is just along for the ride.  Although that is true, it is only fair to at least recognize that the truck Tarp Covers tarp system isn’t complete without the tarp, tarpaulin or canvas…call it whatever you like. The mesh, vinyl or solid material that covers the load, complete the tarping system.  You know, like how Renee Zellweger’s character “completes” Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire…but I digress.

This brings me to the purpose of this blog post.  Tarp Applications, what do they cover and what is the best tarping solution for your application?
