Bill, what condition is your truck in?  If it has good paint be careful with
putting a cover directly on it, it can cause all kinds of paint problems.

I have built a simple 6 leg flat (sloped) roof for temporary storage using
2x4's and plywood covered with tar paper.  In the winter I would wrap it
with clear plastic.  It lasted for years.  The plywood won't sweat like all

Good Luck.
