    I'm completely refurbishing my utility trailer and I was wondering how many of you have a custom made tarp for the trailer. I was thinking of buying a canvas tarp custom ordered from Tractor Supply. However, I wasn't sure how to secure it. Ideas, experiences, pics, etc. welcomed.

    How about eye bolts? One on each corner and, depending on how long your trailer is, you'll probably need some on the sides.

    Look to the Trucking industry for good tarps. From where you are at, you should be able to go over to Youngstown to the Truckstops and Find information on some one that will custom make a tarp for you.

    go get a mesh tarp for your trailer. I got one for my new 7x16 open trailer. I just bolted it through the eyelets on the front and roll it up when not in use. Then when I haul a load I use two bungee cords at the end to hold the tarp over the load.
