I was at Sapa, Cressona Friday and was having fits tucking the plastic under the load, but then I remembered my hammer tacker:

I bought it to tack my plastic corner protectors to OSD loads, but it also works great to tack plastic to the wood dunnage surrounding the bundles of a Sapa load.

Nice, always carried one too. The other odd tool I had was a small handsaw, for cutting back dunnage if it overhung the rub rails.

This thread needed a bump, but..

@andhe78 .... how the heck have YOU BEEN ?!?!?!

I've got the answer, already . . . you've been MISSED!!

Thus is why I don't like metal loads. And yes I had to tarp it.

Older load but a difficult one because of all the various fittings and gauges on the top that had to be protected. Not to mention climbing up in and around all the plumbing to double check everything and feed the tarps without breaking anything.
