I hope you’re as excited as I am about receiving my Gorilla Cargo Safety Net today. It’s a sweet product and I wanted to share a few pictures of it with you.
The size I purchased was the largest available. It’s 12’x10′. The material is nylon – just like any good quality tie-down you might purchase in the hardware store. The material is the primary reason I purchased this. Others available were made of that bungee stuff. Not good for real travel.
I was working on the trailer this afternoon and I decided that it might be a good idea to cover the setup with one of my tarps. It’s supposed to snow tomorrow and I figured that instead of shoveling snow out of the trailer, it would be easier just to flip it off the tarp. So that’s what I did. Covered the trailer. After that, I wanted to see how the cargo net would look covering the tarp. It looks pretty damn good, I would say.
Now, please be aware that this isn’t how one would go about covering cargo with a tarp and a cargo net in a trailer. I did it this way to simply check out the sizing of things. In actuality, you would want to tuck and tie down the edges of both the tarp and the net inside the trailer walls. Having the edges outside the walls gives you nothing but a glorified ceiling for the trailer.
Take a look at the pictures and let me know what you think.
