Which kit do I need? Dump beds up to 28 feet long can use the external mount. Dump beds 28 feet and longer need the underbody mount system.

Which tarp should I use? To select the tarp length generally you should add 2 feet to the length of the bed. Example: If your bed is 24 feet you should order a 26 foot long tarp.

The “Stealth” is also available in underbody or side rail spring mounts. The upper arms are versatile and may be interchangeable with your existing tarp covering system. In addition to the standard front to back system for dump bodies up to 23 feet, we offer a Bent Arm system for longer trailers and end dump applications up to 46 feet. The Bent Arm provides longer trailer bodies with a lower profile when covering a load compared to the high profile with a straight arm system.

Why a tarping kit? Load spill is considered dangerous and a criminal act. That is the reason why tarping load laws and the stiff penalties that go with breaking these laws were enacted. Every year there are hundreds of serious injuries because tarps act like a large parachute in flight if not carefully handled. It is time consuming, dangerous, and hard work to hand tarp loads. A tarping system is much safer and less time consuming than hand tarping.
