    Yup. One of those times I loaded a page and didn't get around to reading it until later I guess, then responded without realizing more had been said...

    Second time tarping a load. 26ft steel circular bars. My 26ft tarp fit perfectly. Also first time I used rubber rope. 3/8 solid core off Amazon. Must say I'm very happy with it. Quicker than bungies, maybe.

    I Like using rope for my tarps. It take a bit longer when loading but the unloading goes so much quicker then bungees.

    When I tarp for some reason I have this notion in my head that I must pinch the tarp between the edge of the trailer inside the rub rails and my rope or bungies. My thinking is this creates a more water tight seal and maybe keeps wind from going under the tarp. For example I try to pull the bungies towards the inside of the trailer and not around the rub rail. Does this matter at all?
