Re: rod storage for a pickup canopy
I made one once for a truck I had. I used 2x4's and plywood. I hinged the bottom (near the tailgate) about 18 inches up with a piano hinge, so I could open it and access the rods easier. I put indoor/outdoor carpet over it so I could put stuff on it or sleep on it. It worked good. I don't have any pictures, but if you have any more questions about it send me a PM.
