i bought a dump insert used and made a box out of plywood and steel mesh roof. It has held together pretty well (2 yrs old) and it has warped (barn doors) and it takes 2 people to take it on and off and to put it together. This year i just bought a dump and Im considering buying the mesh heavy duty tarp from TSC. Just to make it easier to take it on and off for me (solo and part part part time help). Then i was gonna put one my 3/4 ton with the dump insert. The only things is you would have to design a piping system to hold it up. local canvas shop might do mine.

We had one where I used to work. It was great, much better than any plywood contraption I've ever used. Is it worth the money, I don't know. All I know it was better constructed, more functional, and looked better than 90% of the homemade pieces of crap screwed together.

Would I buy one? No...I have a background in carpentry and would love to build a nice looking wooden one myself.
