I ve done it successfully and my truck doesn t have a cover.

Since you do, just cover the exposed plywood with a tarp put a couple feet up under the covers.

You can either weight it down or attach tarp to a 2×4 and clamp that to the ply.

Put plywood on a couple 2×4 runners allowed you to use clamps..

It will still get a little wet taking it out of the store to the truck and while loading it – I assume the little bit it will get wet during this won t have much impact?

I’d use those carts that holds the ply vertically for the least amount of rain impact. Or if you’re at a big retail home center (HD, Lowes, etc.), they usually have a contractor pick up area with a huge cover, so no chance of rain hitting your supplies. To fully protect your ply, I have considered the option of double tarping the ply: wrap the tarp on one side and secured on the other side, then use another tarp on the opposite side and secure on the initial side so any water that does get in won’t actually hit the plywood. I live in Central FL, so I have to take into consideration when rain will hit as well.
