    Hey guys, I'm trying to get my own authority. I'm curious on what brand of 8' Lumber tarps to buy. I've helped TMC and P&S drivers fold tarps before and I think they have the best kind. Anyone know who manufactures them? Any help is appreciated, thank you.

    Tri city canvas is where I got all my tarps from. Super high quality. They also make coil bags that are really nice too.

    When I was pulling step deck, I've had light weight tarps from DS-Sewing. 2 end pieces and one middle. 50lbs each. Had them for 7 years till quit trucking, always padded though.

    I have a set of 8’s from Marco’s truck tarps in Houston and they have been good so far.Also Houston truck tarps seems to have good ones as well.I believe I paid $780 for the set in May.

    I have used Double C Canvas in Midlothian, TX exclusively for all of my tarps and major repairs. They are a tad more expensive than some of the other major canvas companies but I have never had a single issue with any of their tarps.

    Yeah, company I drove for down there used them, too. Of course, they paid for the cheaper by the dozen repair priced I think, because they had patches all over them tarps. The newer ones looked good, but they didn't last long with those other drivers. o_O

    I've had really good luck with their tarps. The only rips or tears have come from my mistakes and their repairs have been top notch.
     
    CAXPT Thanks this.
