Steve Elliott sent this photo to me to post for him. I didn't see a thread already so this is a new one.
Steve wants to know if anyone is selling or making the supported covers for the TT truck bed. I'm not sure what they're called.
The picture appears to be a T trailer with a cover, I can see a straight rear axel and it looks like hard rubber tires. It is an interesting cover. The picture looks like there has been some photo shop dune to it.
Yes, it's a trailer but he wants one for a truck. The picture, I believe, came from a TV screen. I cropped it and sharpened it a little so the edges aren't really natural. Keen eye Bob but not really relevant.
Actually, I think it is a truck with chain drive. Looks like another hub in front of the wheel.
Check with your local marine upholstery shop
Perhaps a visit to one of the military surplus sites on the internet would net some results for a canvas cover. They show them once in a while for the small trailer that they tow behind Jeeps.
Also a sail maker, canvas maker for tractor trailers, or an awning shop should be able to make a cover. I think the bows could be made from pipe or conduit. I did a covered wagon one time for a display and used PVC conduit and attached a canvas painters drop cloth. I used a heavy seneu thread and stitched around the conduit and gathered the ends and sewed them to look pleated. Like I stated mine was only a static display and more detailed work would be required to make it road worthy and metal conduit instead of PVC would be recommended..
Truck with a chain drive, on the series Masterpiece Classic, PBS , lots of T's and period auto's and clothing. Now I'm stuck on watching these series . Diff entry going to figure out the canvas top and make the railing out of conduit
surprising number of T's on the BBC program Mr Selfridge - guess he was American but he seems to get around mostly in a Renault.
