Expert Answers about Tarps


  • Storage Tarps For Empty Boat Trailers While Boats Are Stored In Dry Dock
  • I recommend using the Erickson Industrial-Grade Truck/Trailer Tarp # EM57051 for covering your empty boat trailers. This tarp is 12' wide by 24' long so you will be able to cover the wheels and tires to protect them from UV damage as well. Brass eyelets and steel D-rings run along the outer edges for multiple tie-down points to secure it to the trailer and prevent wind damage. The Erickson Tarp Tie-Down Strap w/ S-Hooks # EM06702 are great for long term storage as they will not break...

  • Recommended Waterproof Tarp for Storing 6x10 Utility Trailer
  • The Erickson Brown/Green Reversible Tarp, 10 x 10 Weave - 10' x 12' # EM57032 is a great option for your 6 x 10 utility trailer. It will allow you to keep the top tight and roll the edges over the sides to protect from water and UV rays. Covering the tires as much as possible is a good way to prevent early tire wear from UV as well.

  • Tarp Protection to Prevent Tarp Cutting
  • While we don't carry blankets for protection, we do have additional tarps to keep your cargo secure. You can use something like the Erickson Mesh Tarp and Truck Bed Cover - Heavy Duty - Black - 10' x 12', part # EM57058, to have just another layer of tarp. Or, you can take a slightly different approach and use something like the Rightline Gear Xtreme Mesh Tarp - 10' x 8', part # RL100T65. This has a tough, polyethylene construction with UV protection the helps it to resist cuts, tears,...

  • Tarp Recommendation for Utility Trailer Car Hauler that is 7 by 16

  • What Can I Use As a Utilty Trailer Cover That Isn't a Tarp?
  • I have a solution for you, but there isn't going to be anything that's an exact fit because they don't make covers for utility trailers in the same manner that they do for pop-up campers, travel trailers and RVs/5th wheels. With that being said, I recommend looking at the Camco UltraGuard Pop-Up Camper Cover # CAM45760. The Camco is a waterproof cover that is designed to cover a 6ft x 8ft pop up camper with a height of 46" tall. This provides a good solution to keep your trailer shielded...

  • It sounds like you have an open trailer you are wanting to cover with a tarp. I recommend the Erickson Industrial-Grade Truck/Trailer Tarp, 14 x 14 Weave - 10' x 18' # EM57045 or the 10' x 20' version # EM57046.

  • Availability of Cover for 5th Wheel Trailer with Slide Outs Extended
  • Although they do not make any covers for a 5th wheel trailer with the slide outs extended, I may have a solution for you. You could use the Erickson Heavy-Duty Silver Tarp # EM57019 to help protect your trailer against the elements. This tarp has 14 x14 weave and measures 20 feet by 40 feet. You would only need to find the best way to secure it. Since covers are not made for your specific application, this is the best solution to help protect your 5th wheel trailer.

  • Trailer Cover for Motorcycle Trailer that is 12 Feet 1 Inch Long
  • For the dimensions you listed the best cover option is the Adco SFS AquaShed Cover for Bumper Pull Trailer # 290-46003 as it fits trailer lengths between 12'1" and 14' and has quite a bit more height and width than you'd need as well, but the excess can easily be secured tightly with adjustment straps. This cover was designed for wet climates so it would be a great cover for your needs too.

  • For a tarp that should be large enough to cover your gooseneck trailer, I recommend looking at the Erickson Heavy-Duty Silver Tarp # EM57027. This all-purpose tarp measures 30 feet wide and 40 feet long. It features a reflective, silver-gray cover to prevent heat absorption and plastic-reinforced corners for excellent strength and durability. If you want something a bit larger, we also have the Erickson # EM57055, which measures 33 feet wide and 48 feet long. We do also have storage...

Keep in mind that this cover is made of mesh and should not be used as a covering for rain.

  • Do You Make A Tonneau Bed Cover For Yamaha Umax Golfcart UTV?
  • I have a possible solution for you, however, we do not carry tonneau bed covers for your Yamaha Umax Golfcart / UTV. If you just wanted the cover for looks or to keep the cargo inside the bed, you could look into the universal Erickson Mesh Tarp and Truck Bed Cover - Heavy Duty - Black - 6' x 8' # EM57056. Keep in mind, this is not weatherproof, but is made of a mesh material to protect the cargo from sun and wind. I have attached a photo showing this cover being used on a small utility...

  • Is There a Weatherproof Cover for 5 x 10 Landscape Trailer
  • I do have an option for you but none of our covers are designed for landscape trailers nor are they designed to be used while the trailer is in motion. That said, your best option is going to be a tarp like the Erickson Heavy-Duty Silver Tarp part # EM57022 which measures 14' long x 10' wide and has tie-down rings every 3' so you can secure the tarp better with some bungee cords like Erickson Flat Bungee Cord part # EM06912.

The nearest size to what you're looking for is the 12 x 16-foot # EM57059. I also linked all of our tarps including other types.

  • Can a 12 x 16 Erickson Mesh Tarp be Used to Protect the Roof of a Class C RV
  • We do have the Erickson Mesh Tarp in a 12' x 16' version with part # EM57059. We actually do not manufacture the products on our site so if you were wanting to use the mesh tarp as a roof cover for your Class C RV this would be what you want to do. Although the mesh tarps will help to protect your roof I recommend going with a product that was made for covering the roof of an RV. The Adco # AD59ZR is our best cover for trailers measusring up to 34 feet. SFS AquaShed travel trailer cover...

The tarp is weatherproof to help protect the boxes in your bed. The integrated bungee-style net helps to secure the boxes in the bed as well. I have attached a photo for your reference.

  • Availability of 5 x 9-Foot Mesh Tarp for Dump Trailer

They also make a 6 x 8-foot version # EM57056. Erickson also offers their Industrial-Grade Truck/Trailer Tarp # EM57040 that measures 6 x 8-feet; again, close but no cigar. A reversible and cost-effective green/brown tarp in this same 6 x 8-foot size is also available as part # EM57030. I checked with my contact at Erickson and they...

  • Cover for a 40 Foot 2006 Salem Travel Trailer with Leaking Slide Out
  • We do have covers specifically for trailers. A tarp might work but isn't designed for any one purpose. A better fit would be a cover made for a trailer. But if it is a travel trailer, we will not have any that are 40 feet long. I would need to know the model of your 2006 Salem to be sure though. A tarp such as # EM57019 could work. It is certainly long enough at 40 feet. But would only hang down a few feet on each side since it is 20 feet wide. You would have to use straps and/or weights...

  • Are the Erickson Heavy-Duty Silver Tarp Waterproof
  • The Erickson Heavy-Duty Tarps like part # EM57021 will work well to keep an area dry. They are not completely waterproof but still do a great job of helping protect what's underneath like most other tarps. I like these tarps as they have more tie-downs than most others so you can can secure them every few feet which will help keep more water out as there will be less openings.

  • Cover For Truck Bed For Occasional Use That is Easily Removed and Stored Away
  • I have the perfect cover for you, Rightline Gear Truck Bed Cargo Net with integrated Tarp part # RL100T60. The Rightline tarp is a weatherproof tarp that is designed to help keep the gear in the back of your truck dry when you go on trips. The built in cargo net on the Rightline is a bungee-style net that is 10-1/8" long x 8-1/8" wide when stretched so it will easily stretch to fit the bed of your Sierra whether you have the 6-1/2 ft or 8 ft bed. It also comes with a convenient carrying...

  • What Seperates Rightline Gear Truck Bed Tarp RL100T60 From Cheap Tarp
  • Like a lot of tarps the Rightline Gear Truck Bed Tarp w/ Integrated Cargo Net # RL100T60 that you referenced is made of polyester. It's not the super cheap polyester you see on cheap tarps that basically feels like a large sheet of plastic. This is lighter weight so that it behaves more like a fabric in the way it fits items it's protecting. That combined with the integrated cargo net is what really separates it from a cheap tarp. Check out the review video I attached for more info as well.

  • Is the Rightline Gear Truck Bed Tarp w/ Integrated Cargo Net Part # RL100T60 Waterproof
  • I do have a tarp for you which is coined as "weatherproof" but none of our tarps are labeled as waterproof. The weatherproof tarp we offer, the Rightline Gear Truck Bed Tarp w/ Integrated Cargo Net part # RL100T60 will work to repel water but as it would very difficult to get a watertight seal around the edges, it would not be fair to designate the tarp as waterproof which is going to hold true for most other tarps as well. I have attached a review video for you as well.

  • Recommended Cover For A Travel Trailer
  • If you're talking about covering just the tongue of the trailer then you could simply use a tarp like the Erickson Heavy-Duty Silver Tarp # EM57021 to protect it from the Sun. If you're talking about the actual body of the trailer then you would need a full RV Cover like the Adco Olefin HD All-Climate + Wind RV Cover for Travel Trailer # AD87ZR. RV Covers are length specific so you would want to measure the length of your trailer from the rear bumper to the front of the trailer's body...

  • Recommended Tarp For Protecting a 6' X 14" Double Axle Utility Trailer
  • I recommend the Erickson Industrial-Grade Truck/Trailer Tarp # EM57044. This tarp is 10' X 16' giving you extra material to cover the sides of the trailer as well. It uses a heavy duty 14x14 nylon weave and has a polyethylene laminate to help protect against water and UV rays. Brass eyelets and steel D-rings run along the outer edges for multiple tie-down points. The Erickson Tarp Tie-Down Strap # EM06702 is 18" long and the rubber design will not break down as easily as bungee cord straps.

It has a poyethelyne coating to resist UV rays and harsh weather to prevent shrinking, rot, and mildew. It has rust-proof grommets and plasti-reinforced corners.

You'd have to come up with some type of creative solution for mounting it from your home to the porch railing (at an angle above the door so you can walk out) but it's certainly something...
