Oliver,
 
No keder welt at Lowes, buy the 13mm from Amazon, or use the interweb for another source.  I GOOGLED keder welt and got all kinds of sources, even hangers if you want to go that route.

Can you give me a link? 11mm is the biggest I can find! Also, I was planning on using a plastic tarp with grey on one side and brown on the other I found at Home Depot. I might use canvas if I could find something lightweight and waterproof, but what I've found so far is heavy canvas.I'm thinking the lightweight plastic might be best? And the hangers, they don't say what the diameter is on the ball end that goes in the rail?

A guy from that company, Keder solutions, emailed and told me most people he works with for what I described go with 11mm. That is what I told you appears to be the biggest on Amazon...?

I was looking at Keder Solutions website again and looking at the keder hangers. Does anybody have any experience with those? It looks like one end will slide into the keder rail, and the other end looks like it grips the tarp. I would think that end would attach to the grommits??

Talked with R-pod parts lady Diana Norris. She was very nice and accommodating.
She's sending me a kit to repair the place where I took the sink out. Reasonably priced. She also said the smaller keder I have should fit the later black keder rail, but if it doesn't I can squeeze the opening in the rail and it will. I still want to get hangers to connect a tarp also. I will call Keder Solutions.
Her no. is 574-642-3119 opt 4.

Personally I would not pinch my keder rail to accommodate a smaller welt, really limits what you can do for the sake of installing an older RDome.  Your call.

You're right mcarter, in fact I didn't do that. I did finally put up my R Dome and found the 9mm fits in the 14mm rail just fine(like she said it would). I still want to figure out how to use hangers to attach a tarp, it's quicker and easier. I will give Keder Solutions a call.
