    Where do you guys buy flatbed supplies? Do you worry about Chinese materials, or is it all Chinese anyway? Thanks

    U can find most stuff at trailer dealerships , truck dealerships, napa, trailer stores. Or u can get to a specialized store made just for flatbed gear. Google flatbed supplies , and find something near u. Most stuff is chinese made anymore. The good ole usa doesnt manufacture alot of those materials anymore. So its almost impossible to avoid, but if u find a local trailer shop u can find some good quality products....

    Don't ever buy stuff at truck supply places.

    Stock up when you're at home. From the local trailer store.

    $11 for straps vs. $35 - $40 from the truckstop. Whatever the prices are these days.
