Custom vbox spreaders/ covers?

I have a 2 yd v box and have been using tarps to cover the load. Well, Ive gone through 2 crappy tarps and one heavy duty one. What do you use to cover your vbox??? Id like somthing snug, almost like a fitted sheet on your bed...

also...I have been thinking about adding sides that angle down so no salt gets in the best of my dump truck. Anyone have any pictures of what theyve done???

go to an upholstery shop or boat cover place. I had one made out of the material they use for covering tractor trailers. the corners are doubled up in the front to keep it from tearing. keeps it VERY dry. I can heap it up 6-8" over the top and still keep it dry with the extra I have around the sides and tail-flap (covers the motor cover by 10". It should be less than $200. I leave salt in my truck for days or weeks at a time without it freezing up.
