Hello yall I was watching YouTube videos to kill time and the guy hauled glass for maverick for awhile and I was wondering how they tarp those glass loads? Are the tarps already on the frames that hold the glass or do they have like steps to throw the tarps over the glass? Have a great night and stay safe

I want to say the tarps are already on the frames for the most part. We also have several trailers that are already covered. If home time wasn't a necessity for me I'd probably be on the glass side.

Glass is home every 2-3 week right ? I think itd be cool to haul something a little more specialized

Yeah 2 weeks minimum. From talking to a few drivers I believe it's better to stay out longer than that. We also have a boat division. There's a guy on YouTube that vlogs his experience with it.

The boat division is only available in a certain area, you can find it on their website. There's always plenty of flatbeds you can pull lol
