This is very unclear. What type of fencing? What type of channel? Where did you source it from? is it waterproof?

Oh my this is really great. I saw another cover and that made me search to see if anyone else did one. Now I have to choose. Yours is much easier and I imagine lighter.

Ok...this is brilliant. Do you have a link for the fence? Is it a solid panel or is it tongue and groove?

Where did you find that aluminum track, or what is it originally made for. I can find the vinyl fencing but the track is holding me up.

This is a great bed cover! I'm sure that it's pretty sturdy as well.
