Roll-Rite’s high-capacity tarp spool housing is designed for chip hauling trailers up to 53 feet in length. The housing is attached to the trailer bulkhead, and the tarp system arms sit below the top rail, so the system provides a completely clean trailer top rail and clear loading zone, the company says. The housing also is designed to be roomy enough to hold Roll-Rite’s pleated tarp design, a tarp expanding up to 10 feet wide to effectively cover heaped chip loads.

According to the company, its standard full tarp spool housing for general truck and trailer applications is designed to hold up to 30 feet of its super tough mesh, while the new high-capacity tarp spool housing can hold up to 57 feet of the super tough mesh and up to 46 feet of its pleated super tough mesh.

Roll-Rite says other benefits of the high-capacity product, as compared to its standard tarp spool housing, include half the installation time; no gussets required; use of only one-third of the fasteners (2/3 less holes to drill); and no vertical height added to the trailer.
