Trucks, in one form or another, have been motoring down Americas roadways since at least the 1800s. In the early years, people primarily focused on perfecting the vehicles engines. In later ones, the focus shifted to the beds and rightfully so. Beds are central to a trucks usefulness, especially if one plans on transporting goods. So what did people come up with to protect their trucks beds?
There are a number of methods used to protect a trucks bed. Among the most expensive are special inserts and spray or baked on liners. Of course not everyone can afford those modes of protection. Enter tarps. Tarps are perfect for the everyday man or woman who wants to ensure that their truck beds are in it for the long haul. Pardon the automotive pun.
Why pick tarps over liners and inserts? We can name four good reasons right off the top of our hoods. Theyre affordable, simple to use and easy to get. Also, when folded, they can fit inside of truck cabs or built-in storage lockers. So in actuality the query becomes, Why not pick tarps over the other options?
Because truck beds come in all dimensions these days, the tarps meant to protect them do too. Among the smallest truck tarps are ones that fall in the 07 x 09 category. They traditionally weigh 6-ounces and may be folded or rolled into compact units. The larger truck tarps (11 x 24) tend to weigh the same but may require more folding or rolling of course. And unlike their expensive counterparts, prices start at less than $20 each.
With any truck tarp, hard-working Americans will also need to select tie-down systems. The systems, by the way, are inexpensive too. To discover how they work in conjunction with the best truck tarps in America, please contact us.
