Question:

The mishna in sukkah says that if a sukkah is built on a wagon (agalah) you can use it for all days of the chag. Does the same halacha apply to a car or truck? Can one go into a sukkah in the back of a truck on all days of the chag?

Answer:

Yes it also applies to a car or truck. One may make a succah on the back or a truck however the succah has t be strong enough that it can stand up to regular winds that would come to the top of a truck. It is permitted to go on to the truck on shabbos, because a truck is a kli shmilachto l’issur, (an item that is designated to do issur things on shabbos), which is permitted to move when being used for a use that is permitted on shabbos or yom tov. This is in contrast to making a succah on the back of an animal, that one may not go into it on yom tov because we are not allowed to climb on an animal on yom tov.
