I drive a Tacoma with the access cab and hauling lumber in the rain is not fun. I have not found a good solution for keeping things dry. Last time I needed a handful of sheets of ply it was of course raining. Like Chris I try to plan around the weather but i live in the midwest so the forecast is as much a guess as it is science. While I was at the yard I picked up the cheapest 1/4” sheet they offered to toss on top. Figured if it didn’t get too wet maybe some could be salvaged for shop cabinet drawer bottoms.

If I lived anywhere it rained a lot I would most likely be looking at a van. While I personally think they are butt ugly the Ford Transit vans would make a great lumber hauler. Might not be the coolest thing to drive around daily but they hold a ton of crap in them and have a pretty low load height.
