Enclosing my spray truck

Does anybody have any recommendations on options for enclosing a Pickup truck that has a sprayer in the back? Thinking hopeful that at some point we might get some rain. It was a struggle last season (first season) the few times it DID rain.

This may sound like a stupid answer to your Q but, wouldn't a canopy work if it's just for cover. They can custom make one to fit your needs.

Healthy,

I am looking at doing the same thing. If anyone has pictures please post.

I thought about extending the sides and putting a camper topper on the extentions ???? This would look to REDNECKISH LOL

I'm sure a local canopy dealer would be able to build one for your needs. These are just examples of what commercial canopies are out there.

Hope this helps some.

We buy used cube vans, often Ryder or U Haul units. You can get them for 3-4 thousand. That means a dedicated truck, most likely, but the investment is minimal. If you put a canopy over your pickup or what have you, it has lost its utility for other uses as well.
