Neither does shade cloth if you only cover the top of the trailer. I'm thinking about 8-12" of air space between the top of the trailer and the covering.

I found this, which is close to what I had pictured as a solution.



It is a bit pricey, but they listed some interesting stats:

Quote:
It was noted that from 7:00pm in the evening until 12:00 midnight that the air conditioner ran for a total of two hours without any shade during the day but ran for only 20 minutes when the RV was installed with the Rooftop Shade System.
Quote:
Two infrared images were taken. One image focused the cross-hair scope at a point outside of the shaded area and identified the surface temperature as 123 degrees F. Another image focused the cross-hair scope at a point under the shaded area and identified the surface temperature as 92.7 degrees F.

seems like if the military and nomads can use tents to keep livestock and humvvee's cooler and such, that a gentle folk like us can use them for shade too.

can we get a big sand-camoflage tent?

Might as well bring this here from another thread:
snow load on roofs
I built the "Scamport" myself (my labor rate is low working for myself), the sticks and nails and metal roof all together cost about $1100.

By the way, the snow cover is about the same this winter. It's been white since Thanksgiving and more cold is on the way.
