Topper To Borrow?

Does anyone have a topper for a full-sized bed that I could borrow? Or, know of one I could buy cheaply? I'm pretty sure we are taking a bunch of furniture to our son in Delaware in January in the '81 I call Dad's truck and I don't want anything to get wet. So, a topper seems to be a better solution than a tarp, or even two of them. But, as I normally have a tool box on the truck, although it will be off for that trip, I won't be able to use a topper at other times so don't need one for long term.

Thanks,
Gary

Thanks, Ron. But I don't think the topper idea is going to work out, although I haven't completely given up yet. It looks like the load is going to be too high to let a topper sit down over it.

Thanks again!

What about an Inclosed trailer? If I still have mine you could use it. I have a possible trade for a larger gooseneck but that may not go through.

The problem there is you'd probably want it back. IOW, with U-Haul I get to leave the trailer in DE and get my gas mileage back up. Actually, I've done a spreadsheet and looked at the alternatives 12 ways from Sunday. Getting it all in the bed of the truck is, by far, the cheapest way to go. And, if something that can go in the Murano has to wait for another trip then it'll have to wait.

But, thanks a bunch. I appreciate the thought.
