Thank you, yeah we get winds. Lots of trees around it as well but thats another issue.

I found this but not sure it leaves enough room for the AC unit to breath.

Any idea how much it will cost to replace the roof after these chafe thru the rubber roof?


I wouldn't let it touch the roof and I'm really just looking for a temporary shade cloth while I'm there. 3-4 days a month.

I’m betting that the majority of heat gain is from the walls, not the roof.

OP, couple of ideas. If its a permanent site, I'd suggest a Carolina Carport. I bought a 31' by 18' on 10' legs for $2400 a couple years ago. Keeps sun, rain, branches, etc off my roof most of the year at home.

Otherwise, I'd suggest buying a large sunsail style shade and securing it to the trees around your camper. They do a GREAT job of cutting sunlight and heat. We have a large one over our deck at home and it makes it so much nicer on a hot sunny day. We paid about $45 for ours.

You might want to look into getting a camo net for a cover... won't catch the wind and will partially block the sun light Some examples of camo netting
One used as a shade cover

There are shades you can buy in many sizes made for greenhouses. It is mesh like. Various colors, too. I bought a roll in tan, then grommet kit from Harbor Freight. I can hang it from my awning or my back porch which faces west and can be a killer glare.
I do not know the extent of the sizes.
