Trailer Tarp Cross Braces

Dear Editor, I thought you might be interested in this method I have of keeping water from leaking through the canvas on my 1/4-ton trailers. I built cross braces (see Fig.), which run the water off the canvas before it can soak through, using nothing more than two pieces of wood. Pieces of L-shaped metal can be put on the ends to strengthen them. Lt. D. E. Menown APO 17665 Ed. Note – M/Sgt. W. T. Booth, 94 Cml. Bn. Mtz., rigged up and sent in a similar idea. trailerbows
