    I am starting to prepare my equipment for the upcoming leaf season. Every year we mount a rather large, awkward box on top of one of our rack bodies. Over the years, the sides and top have begun to expand, which makes a huge mess and it seems when we dump, another piece falls apart. Rather than building another box, that will experience the same problems, I am looking for another solution.
    I have seen on rack bodies, a canvas tarp that is supported by steel rods that run the width of the bed. I have not been able to find any information online on this application and am hoping someone here uses this for their clean ups.
    I am using a Salsco tow behind leaf sucker.
    Any ideas or links to any sites would be awesome.

    I have the same problem as you, I was looking at bending round metal bar puting a mesh trap from northern tool hopefully that works.
