Since many month we are working on the TT to get a tarpaulin on it.
All is made now I am looking for some advice.
Need some advice who could produce such a cover?
What color would you take. Thanks Stefan
Maybe a local canvas shop if there's one nearby. As for color...hard to say, tan maybe?
I would order an RV Class B or C car cover that
approximates the overall dimensions of your TT.
He's looking for a tarpaulin for the stake body - like a covered wagon. Not a car cover.
Stefan - Sie brauchen eine menge von Segeltuch und einer sehr geschickte Schneider. Farbe? Hell braun wuerde sehr gut aussiehen.
Oder velleicht schwarz.
Uebrigens, Ihr Lasteagen sieht fantastisch aus! Bin neidisch.
Verdammte IPhone...sollte "vielleicht" und "Lastwagen" lesen.
Kein Schwartz. Hell braun is besser.
Stefan -- Contact a local company which makes awnings. They will be able to make you a top.
Figure out exactly what you want, make a drawing, buy the material and sew it yourself.
Or find a friend, neighbor or relative who is good with a sewing machine.
Or, to elaborate on what Tim Wrenn posted, find a local company that makes and repairs awnings, or boat covers or repairs tents, etc.
Examples of what we have in Minneapolis - they all do custom work:
Harris above used to be THE PLACE for custom canvas work - there wasn't anything they couldn't do, but they seem to have cut back lately based on the last time I was there a few years ago.
Use a pearl gray cotton material. It is light green in color, lightweight, and water repellent. Our fold out camping trailer was topped with a 7' by 20' tent of this material. My wife and I sewed a new top section in the tent with her Adler home sewing machine. It was quite an adventure, a plain tarp would be quite simple. At the time it was available in a 54 inch width.
Stefan is in Switzerland, not USA.
mabey you can find a used tent at a army surplus store?
Dave Switzerland is in central old Europe. Did you mean New Glarus is little Switzerland in WI. Thanks for all the advice and help. Mike it is hard to find good stores over her they are willing to make it. Erik I think I will for the cotton material. We made drawings so it will not so difficult to make it.
I have been to New Glarus in my Model T here in Wisconsin.
I have also been to Switzerland in Europe. I tried to get a job in Basel. My son will be in Zurich in a couple of weeks. He is going to University in Freiburg.
Good luck on getting a cover. The truck looks great.
So final we got the wood don to put a tarpaulin on it.
How did you make the top bows? Are they steam bent?
Hi Ted no hey are cut out by CNC
