Wrapped Utility Truck Cover
A wrapped truck cover is simply a 2-dimensional (flat) PVC tarpaulin tarp that you use to cover the top of your trailer with extra width and length to allow you to wrap part of the sides of the trailer as well.
To size your cover fabric correctly you will need to decide how far you want the tarp to go down the sides and you have to add this distance to the tarp dimensions. Be sure to add twice the side distance to the length and width of your trailer to determine your tarp dimensions.
For example, if your trailer is 4′ x 7′ and you want your tarp to go 1′ down the sides you would order a tarp that is 6′ x 9′. In this case, you would need to wrap the excess corner material when you tie down the tarp. If you zoom into the picture above you will see that this is not a fitted tarp because the corners had to be folded over. You can also tell because the front is lower than the sides.
Fitted Utility Truck Cover
Fitted PVC tarpaulin truck cover is sized to exactly fit your trailer, kind of like top of a shoe box. With fitted tarps the excess material that normally “bunches” in the corners is removed and the corners are sewn to create a nice tight fit. To order a fitted tarp you must use the advanced custom tarp ordering function which allows you to enter 3-dimensions: Your trailer length, Your trailer width and The distance that you want the tarp to go down the sides (the tarp height).
