Not sure people are going to understand canopy.

More like a portable garage or cover for a truck.

Post a pic of one in the ad.

This one calls it a canopy storage shelter.

Canopy is the term commonly used in Canada....and people understand what is meant by the word.

Some folks might think it refers to those little snacks at a party....canape

I suppose it depends on your location, language, and cultural context.

'Camper Shell' in California.... 'Cap' in the south, I think? If you are talking about what goes onto a pickup truck bed to enclose it, usually has windows and a door.
