    Years ago we talked about building a frame out of PVC pipe to support a canvas tarp on a Bantam trailer. Can't any specifics on by searching. I can figure it out but, I'm just trying to remember if people used 3/4 or 1" PVC. Anyone recall?

    Dave,
    I used 1/2" schedule 40 and it seamed to hold up on my M416... The referenced thread is the one I started. The person I sold that trailer to actually towed it a couple hours on the freeway to his house with no real issues reported beyond having to stop every so often to check the tarp. Unfortunately, with the Photobucket issues that happened last year, all my pics have disappeared. If I were to do it again on my current T-3C, I would spend the money on a top made by a boat upholstery shop.
