    Noticed a new Flatbed supply company recently opened across from the Pilot in London, OH I-70 exit 79...

    NOW OPEN! Our Newest Location in London, OH

    The website says plenty of truck parking but my first thought was geez that place is tiny... It was dark and late at night, maybe they have lots of room out back?

    Did the tarpstop have everything you need? I know the location in Gary only sells dunnage in 5 foot pieces. Is Youngstown the same?

    Also been to the one in youngstown.....plenty of parking. BONUS, same exit as "new" truck world ts.
    U would have to call and ask about the dunnage

    I either go there, or Badger Utility (now known as Northern utility) just north of Madison wi....same exit as TA. You need it for the truck/trl, they got it. BONUS...use ur company mc for tax free shopping! As long as they're set up with wi

    Im not sure, i ended up getting the coil racks that u can use with regular dunnage. They do have all kinds of gear , j plates, headache racks, every strap ,hook and chain combo u could ever want . picked up some 4ft drop tarps with the flaps as well . 2 tarps, box of straps and bungees and 6 coilracks just under 700 bucks . they also got a couple bays to install conestoga system and covered wagon or do patch work etc

    Wow, I'll have to look Northern utility up. I've never heard of them... Located on the side near TA or the Pine Cone truck stop? I'm up that way pretty frequently

    Ta...when u turn right to go to the fuel islands, instead of turning left for the islands, go straight. Past the rv/boat dealer on right, road curves to left, they're next drive on right....cant miss em. Leave wallet in truck...take cash or you'll melt plastic. One of those, i need this and this and one of those places. Lol

    LOL

    That's one of my favorite truckstop restaurants in the country. And yes, the worst part is standing in front of the register with all the homemade baked goods sitting right before my eyes. Takes a lot of strength to not buy a sweet treat on the way out.
