Dump Trailer Tarp Systems

What are Dump Trailer Tarp Systems?

Dump Trailer Tarp Systems are manual tarping systems designed specifically for use with smaller landscaping and dump trailers. These systems are designed to be lightweight and easy to use while also keeping your load protected throughout the day.

Dump Trailer Tarp Systems are becoming increasingly important on the road and are even starting to become a requirement. Local governments across the United States are implementing laws to ensure that trailers have adequate tarping systems to protect loads and other drivers on the road.

Our Dump Trailer Tarp Systems are designed to be universal and easy to use, meaning you can put a system on a trailer and immediately starting saving time and money throughout the day.


What makes a Dump Trailer Tarp System?

There are several key components to these systems, which we define as:

Manual Tarp Crank/Winder

The manual tarp crank attaches to the front of the trailer and is used to cover or uncover the trailer bed using a tarp. Mesh tarps are typically attached to the tarp crank via bolts placed through the tarp’s grommets. The manual tarp cranks we offer are 4-position and easy to operate, saving you time and money throughout the day.

Heavy Duty PVC Mesh Tarps

Dump Trailer Tarp Systems rely on a quality tarp to ensure the load is protected throughout a trip. PVC Mesh Tarps attach to the manual tarp crank and can be secured to the dump trailer bed using bungees, cables, or a tarp pull bar. We offer heavy duty PVC mesh tarps that are made in USA and guaranteed to last longer.

Tarp Pull Bars

The Tarp Pull Bar is a long metal bar that attaches to the end of the tarp to hold the tarp in place when fully rolled out. Typically mesh tarps will have a pocket on the end that the tarp pull bar slides through. Tarp pull bars will also have to discs on the side to ride along the sides of the dump trailer.
