    How many would buy a 12x14 tarp?

    I have an old man winter 12ft tarp but would like to pitch it higher so I do not have to bend (bad back) but still want the coverage. Just wondering how many others would be interested in a 12x14 ft tarp with doors? Maybe if there are enough of us one of the vendors will make one.
    When I was a kid the only time we were in the house was to eat and sleep.

    My custom winter hot tarp is 12 x 14 made by OES
    RL 12 sides are 7' so I can stand inside and the edges go to ground.

    That's a nice tarp, O&B.

    Where I live the wind is a factor so a taller tarp with a lot of cloth is not advisable.

    But for anyone with sheltered places ...

    Snow certainly sheds better with a steep pitch.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    If you are not overly concerned with weight, Chinook makes a 14'x12' tarp. It is a polyurethane coated polyester fabric. You would just need to add a tie out to the mid point of each 12' side so you could hang it the way you want.


    Cheers

    Hea Doc, What about rigging up some sort of 2-3' skirt for your OMW tarp that would be removable for when you don't need the added coverage?

    Agree with newfiefhost, 12x14 would be a sweet size when hanging with the family and only wanting one tarp.
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I use a 13 X 10 for my winter tarp but would love a 12 X 14 for the extra coverage.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    Wow, that's a huge tarp. That would be like a Motel in the woods. I can see where it would have some advantages.
