    I am having trouble finding a mesh tarp to cover my trailer with when it is full of debris. Anyone know where to get one.

    I am talking about a tarp made out of the stuff they use on lawn chairs. Seen them in use, but no one seems to know where they come from.

    I bought a nice canvas tarp from Harbor Freight, much more durable than the mesh ones. If you don't want to spend that much, you can get the regular tarps at Lowes, Wal-Mart, etc.. The silver are the heaviest, blue the weakest.

    Forestry Suppliers - they have a web site and have an excellent grommetted, heavy duty shade cloth that works VERY well as a tarp and doesn't cost a fortune.

    go to a hunting gear store and look for some stuff that they use to wrap around hunting blinds, its like a burlap camoflauge roll, and it comes it pretty big pieces. i'm not sure this will be practical with your application, but it might be. anyways, you'll have the pleasure of having your trailer blend in with the surroundings and will be near invisible...

    Check you local wholesale nusery for landscape tarps. There are a nylon mesh tarp. Probably cost $75-$125 depending on the size you need. I use one for my leaf truck and it works great. They use them to cover trees and shrubs to prevent wind burn in the summer.
