Spanish term or phrase: deberá mantener un manteado en su vagón o batea
Hola!!! Les agradezco que me ayuden con esta.

"Para circular dentro de las calles de la escuela el camión deberá mantener un manteado colocado en su vagón o batea".

Les remito una imagen de uno de estos camiones y lo que en CR llamamos "lona" para cubrirlo. ¿Cómo se denomina esto en inglés, en los Estados Unidos?
