Rolling tarp systems have replaced sidekits as the preferred method for covering flatbed freight. The Vango from Merlot/Vango is fast becoming the #1 rolling tarp system on the market today. The Vango has earned the reputation as the most durable and easy to operate rolling tarp system on America’s highways.
Features of the Vango
The Vango system is extruded from 6061 aluminum. Even the carriages are aluminum. The entire system weighs less than 2000 pounds on a 48′ trailer.
FRONT LOCKING DEVICE
The front locking device is conveniently located on the front of the bulkhead. The operator can lock the system without climbing on the trailer.
REAR TENSION DEVICE
The rear tension devices are simple, fast and safe. The operator uses a winch bar to tension the Vango system from the ground. The Vango can be opened and closed without climbing on the deck of the trailer. Another option is a rear post and ratchet tensioning system inside the trailer.
The Vango roll up tail can be “set” on top of the roof. The tail is completely out of the way for rear loading.
The Vango system comes in standard heights of 7’3″ and 8’1″. However, Merlot/Vango can customize your Vango to any height.
EASE OF USE
The Vango system is easily moved to any position on the trailer and compacts into an 8′ space on a 48′ trailer.
