Tarp Systems

Trailer Specialists, Inc. is proud to be a MERLOT/VANGO Tarp Systems Dealer and repair center.

We can also service and repair many brands of tarp systems including Till-Fab, Roll-Tite, Aero, Conestoga, Chameleon, Quick Draw, etc.

The benefits to a panelized, retractable tarp system are:

  • Saves you time and money when repairs are needed. A Vango tarp panel can be changed by 2 men in 45 minutes or less.
  • The Vango is also a “seamless” tarping design, which means there are no seams in the high-quality fabric of the tarpaulin.
  • All Vango systems are self-sealing and weather-tight.
  • Durability
  • Simplicity
  • Safety – The entire system can be opened and closed from the ground, which eliminates the risk of falling.
  • Lightweight
  • DOT Headboards

Vango Tarp System Features:

  • ALUMINUM CONSTRUCTION – The Vango system is extruded from 6061 aluminum. Even the carriages are aluminum. The entire system weighs less than 2000 pounds on a 48′ trailer.
  • FRONT LOCKING DEVICE – The front locking device is conveniently located on the front of the bulkhead. The operator can lock the system without climbing onto the trailer.
  • REAR TENSION DEVICE – The rear tension device (patent pending) is simple, fast, and safe. The operator uses a winch bar to tension the Vango system. The Vango can be opened and closed without climbing onto the deck of the trailer.
  • REAR LOADING – The Vango roll-up tail can be “set” on top of the roof. The tail is completely out of the way for rear loading.
  • CUSTOMIZATION – The Vango system comes in standard heights of 90″ and 100″. However, we can customize your Vango to any height.
  • EASE OF USE – The Vango system is easily moved to any position on the trailer. The Vango is bolted to the rubrail of the trailer. The Vango does not affect the loading space of the trailer.
