A camper shell, sometimes known as a topper or cap, is a small housing or rigid canopy used as a pickup truck accessory. The housing is usually made of fiberglass or aluminum, and is mounted atop the pickup truck's rear bed. It generally covers the entirety of the pickup truck bed, and is large enough to be used for camping purposes. Even though use for camping may have been its initial purpose, it now seems most often to be used for utility and storage purposes. Some camper shells are so large that they can overlap the top of the truck's cab. Tonneau (pronounced ta-no) in modern use describes a bed cover for a pickup truck. It can be hard or soft. Hard covers optionally hinge or fold. Its original (now archaic) use was for an open rear passenger compartment on an automobile and, by extension, a body style incorporating such a compartment.
The word comes originally from French, roughly meaning cask, container, or cover. Most tonneaus were fixed in place as an optional element at purchase, but some could be removed as on the Crestmobile. Early tonneaus had a rear-facing hinged door as a rule, but single- or dual side doors were soon introduced. The first side-door tonneau was made by Peerless, but others quickly followed suit. This led to the development of the modern sedan/saloon, with Cadillac manufacturing the first production closed-body four-door car in 1910. In the post-World War II era the term has come to refer to the area behind the front seats of an open car (a convertible or roadster). The term tonneau cover is sometimes used for a hard or soft cover that encloses the well for the convertible top and/or the rear seating/storage area.
The tonneau cover dates to the days of horse-drawn cargo wagons, and later to early trucks, where a tarpaulin was commonly used to protect a load from road dust or weather. Similarly, early open-bodied touring-type automobiles used tonneau covers to protect unoccupied rear seats. Quite often the word is spelled incorrectly as "tonno". A tonneau covering the rear half of bed was often used on electric trucks to reduce wind resistance and increase the range.
