Just curious; I understand the tarp is quite unwieldy and heavy

Yes, there are a few of them out here. We've even had a few in here ourselves.

There's a search bar at the top of this page. Do two separate searches in it. One for "Syster" (spell it like that) and "Sunshine). You'll find some conversations with one of my favorites. You may even find the conversation where she got sent home from orientation because she couldn't lift the tarps. After we gave her some tips she went back, proved she could do it, and got the job.

Sadly, she no longer participates in our forum, but she was a very inspiring young woman.

I actually saw a lady flatbedder yesterday where I was delivering. She was putting her tarps up as I pulled in behind her. I didn't get a chance to speak to her, but she looked to be in her late 40s to early 50s. So yes there are women out here!

I've seen several here during training at Prime and we have a couple fellow female trainees doing it.
