A quality canvas tarp or polyethylene tarp can save you money by protecting valuable equipment, boats, cars, motorcycles, RVs, or anything else from the damaging effects of sun and rain. It is important to find the correct type and weight of tarp with durable seams and reinforced grommets or attachment straps. The right tarp will last for years, while an inferior one may disintegrate quickly if used in a harsh environment.
