    Where's a good place to buy one and preferably install it? I called Tarp Stop and they want 6500. Seems a little high but what do you guys think that run one?

    Mine already had it on, so I can't tell you how that stacks up. A tarp is $950, and I think the posts are around $50. 24 plus the back corner posts. 22 panels plus the back and 11 bows. Don't forget the bulkhead. Seems a little high.

    Tri County in Bradner Ohio last year was 3700 complete kit for a 45x102. Quality products and service.

    Thats not including bulk head.

    The bulkhead should be around another 1k so might be a total of 5k-ish.

    I'm hoping to find the same deal...one already on the trailer. It's just there's a Big Bubba at a decent price near me but it has nothing on it. If I have to add 5k to the purchase price to get it set up it might be a great deal after all that.
     
    Bean Jr. and shooter19802003 Thank this.
