    well the box had a silverado on it

    i was going to buy a "bunge mesh/mess" at the auto store and they wanted like $30 and this is only $50 and will actually keep the load dry (i live in a rainy state)

    (i do also have a set of ratchet straps +rope)

    To post something that's actually on topic...

    If I wanted to keep stuff dry, but didn't want to go buy a $1k+ camper or $500 bed cover, I would absolutely get one of those.

    EDIT: Just watched the video on the site. It'll keep your stuff dry-ish, but it's only over the top and water will still get on whatever is in the bed when it runs off the tarp and pools in the bed. Still... it looks like a relatively inexpensive and secure way to keep your stuff in place.

    Thanks for some input mws4usa
    Looks like they are located right down the road from me...

    more website info
    Fast, Strong, Secure Load Control

    The powerful new cure for load control headaches.

    • All-in-one load covering system for short, medium
    and long-bed pickups and small trailers

    • Fast, strong, secure and adjustable for most common loads

    • Goes on in minutes - spread TarpX over the load, attach the hooks,
    cinch the webbing and go

    • Packs quickly, fits under a seat in its own stuff sack

    • No tangled ropes, snapping bungees, flapping tarp

    I have something similar to this, works well to hold down loads but mine isn't waterproof and not a tarp.

    Here are pics on my brother's 1st gen. It is expandable so it will cover the entire bed.

    I've had one for a couple of years now and love it. It keeps my stuff dry. I use it when I go camping.
