Default DOT reflective tape for trailer?

Anyone know a good source (or works for DOT lol) for the red/white striped reflector tape to run down the sides of my trailer? I prolly need like 50', I'd guess.

Like this stuff ....... Ooohhhh Fred!!?????!! You already have my church card #!

It's called "Conspicuity Tape". Do a search on the web, there are a ton of companies that sell it. I buy it through a company called Midwest Wheel

I have got it form a vinyl supplier, called Ameriban. They do not have a web site but they sell Stimsonite Conspicuity Tape made by Avery. 6"Red/6"White 2" with, 50 yds 125.00, 10 yds 31.50 Part Number ATAPE6. Ameriban > 1800-654-8405 they take credit cards.

thx sundaythunder ... Stimsonite by Avery is one brand, then there's 3M. Now that I am completely educated is just <30mins ... I'm wondering, as always which brand is the best?! Any opinions?

See explanation found by Googleing below:
Tape: There are 3 main manufacturer's of conspicuity tape; 3M, Stimsonite and Reflexite. These are marketed by various suppliers (Grote, Signal-Stat, Truck-Lite, etc.). Be careful when you purchase this tape because it is not all the same. We have discovered that there is a significant difference in the quality and composition of the materials. Make sure that you determine whether the product will stand up to pressure-washings and impact (some manufacturers will not warranty this damage). You can figure on spending between $95.00 and $120.00 for a 150ft roll of this stuff.

just hit your local truck (semi kind) store, they have it in 50' rolls, it ain't cheap... and yes, you are suppose to have it or reflectors at certain intervals depending on what state you are in...

I'm in Va also, and it's not required. I called DMV to ask. I did install a light every 6 feet down the length of my trailer instead though. I like the tape too and may have to get some now. Thanks A-hole...

Called DMV??? Now that is a brave move ... something I'd dare not do! Not in NJ anyway
