Groundbreaking engineering that sets the bar
Aero’s history as a leader in the industry includes the introduction of the first rolling tarp system, the Conestoga, in 1984.
Over 30 years of continued research and development has ensured that the Conestoga remains the best rolling tarp system on the market today.download brochure
Industry’s Undisputed Best Wheel and Track System
The track and wheel design utilizes a unique ‘V’ groove, eliminating the need for numerous, secondary guide wheels. This design also eliminates wheel ‘flat spots’ commonly seen in competitor models.
A built-in bump rail reduces impact damage and further maximizes overall system longevity.play video
V-Groove Track Insert
1.1 Internal Track Design Increases System Longevity
The Conestoga was designed to house the wheels within the track system, providing increased wheel protection from the trailer load and outdoor elements.
The stainless steel track and steel V-groove shaped wheels allow the operator to fully open and close the system with ease.
Wheels are not exposed to the elements
Steel on steel equals ease of rolling and less maintenance
Two Great Rear Locks
Both lock systems travel with the rear bow allowing for maximum load clearance
All Steel Components
Operated Completely from the Ground
Allows for easy opening and closing of the front bow to the bulkhead
A double hinged latch tightly secures the front bow to the bulkhead while ensuring a watertight seal. Latch Locks are operated from the ground for increased safety.
CONESTOGAS EQUIPPED WITH SPEED LOCKS CAN BE OPENED AND CLOSED FROM THE FRONT WITHOUT OPERATING THE REAR LOCKS
Built-in Handles for ease of operation
Stainless steel cane bolt securely locks handle
Uplift Bows Reduce Tarp Sag
Uplift bows are designed to reduce tarp sag and maximize internal load clearance. Spring shocks on the Conestoga uplift bows absorb vibrations from road conditions and extend system and tarp life.
Maximizes inside loading clearance by reducing tarp sag

Robust 30" Front and Rear Bows
The front and rear bows of the Conestoga were designed to be 30" wide, resulting in increased ease of rolling and added stability when compared to systems with narrow bows.
Rear bow has full exterior sheet for additional strength and final tarp installation adjustments
Available without full exterior sheet and adjustable tarp clamp
Bulkhead Available in Both Dot and Non-Dot Models
Non-DOT bulkheads are available with or without access doors. Access doors are available as both standard and heavy duty. The sleek, smooth aerodynamic design reduces drag and increases fuel efficiency. An optional polished alumninum front sheet is available for all models.
Built-in front lock assemblies for maximum loading clearance
Available with optional chain racks and trays
*Industry’s Only DOT rated bulkhead to meet both the U.S. Department of Transportation width regulation 658.16 (b)(2)(vi) and standard 393.114 (c)(2) for loads up to 50,000 lbs. NOTE: Any bulkhead with a door is non-DOT rated. Bulkhead access doors are 6 x 3 feet.
Standard non-dot without door
Standard non-dot with door (T-handle locks)
(not available with door)*
Heavy duty non-dot with door (stainless steel lock rod)
for added strength
AeroRad duals as an aerodynamic rear end device that reduces drag and saves valuable fuel.
AeroRad also secures the curtain to the rear bow for a watertight seal.
No buckles, straps, velcro or bungees required
Simple and fast over center cam lock
The Conestoga offers two rear curtain options—a Roll and a Pull curtain. Choose the way you want to operate the rear based on your needs and preferences.
Underbody handle storage included
Full rear opening and clearance Pull Curtain Rope and pulley operation
No crank handle required
Does not provide full height clearance
