    As far as I can tell the billboard material is very close to the same as what they make the commercial covers out of. (pvc coated poly I think it is) The billboard "tarps" hold up really well, and...

    The cheap poly tarps is definitely a no go as it would just look like crap, and I wouldn't expect much life out of them anyways. I have plenty of experience with those over the years tarping...
