Thats a great idea!
A person might not realize its a rental and start decorating the whole thing.

I hear ya.
We did it last year with JungleSmacks truck, and it did take probably an hour to get the whole thing rigged up. He used a GIGANTIC silver tarp. It went from the ground on one side up over and to the ground again. We originally tried 10"x48" concrete form tubes as the buffer between the truck top and the tarp. But, they're round... so they rolled to the middle after a while. Half way through the week he threw empty boxes up there, and the stayed where they were put.
Since it went to the ground on each side we were able to put rebar right through the grommets and into the ground.
At the front and back of the truck we laced rope through the grommets. And pulled the ropes tight, to sort of cinch the tarp down. At the front over the cab the tarp was too long and went way out over the box and the cab. There we cinched it down and tied it to the frame of the truck.
It sounds WAY more complicated than it is.
