Has anybody used a UV spray on their trasharoo? Did it last longer?
I've had 2 and the first lasted about 2 years taking it on and off. The second lasted 12 months being on the truck all the time.
Each failure was due to the nylon straps tearing like paper.

Used some Nikwax UV protectant/waterproofing from REI. Figured stuff made for obscenely priced hiking gear would be perfect.

Ususally get about a year out of a Trasharoo if left on permanently. After applying the above, the motherfucker disintegrated to dust in less than 2 months.

So yeah, don't use that shit =)

Not sure how any of those are somutions. They all appear to use nylon webbing for the attachment straps, which tends to be the achilles heel of trasharoos.

A real solution would be a more durable mounting system, ideally with a quick-detach so the bag can stay out of the sun when not in use. If the portiom that stays behind on the tire were perhaps metal cabling or something else that isnt affected by UV, all the better.

Ive thought of a few ways to pull it off, but in the end, find it easier and cheaper in the short term to just take the trasharoo off when not needed, and consider it a wear-item that gets replaced periodically.

What about simply wrapping the nylon straps to keep them out of the sun? T

Then periodically you replace the covers, not the whole bag. Of course that does nothing for the bag itself deteriorating.

^^THIS^^

What's Odd is I had a black one that I got from Homedad, I left it on all the time and it lasted 3 years. So much so that it turned the purple. The TAN one I got from Summit, I took off every time I used it, stored it in an old camp chair bag, and it STILL turned the straps to powder. (Well, more like frayed uselessness).

Or you could do this:

And Bungee it to the back of your FJ.

One of these days, I am going to do something similar to this with my rusted Jerry can. It won't make a huge trash can can for the back of my FJ, but I won't have to worry about the sun destroying it.

If it's mainly the straps that are crumbling from the sun it wouldn't be very expensive to replace them, when needed, with good quality webbing that a place like REI would sell. Or, sew some loops at desired points on the bag and use good paracord to secure the bag to your spare.

The newer straps from trasharoo are supposed to be better. The tan and green ones had major issues. Keep your receipts and just give them a call for reolacement
