Cover for nose cone

Does anyone know of a vendor that offers "nose cone" covers. I have my trailer under a cover but the hot west Texas sun hits the nose cone for about an hour every day in the summer. I'm looking for suggestions on a cover while in storage, kind of like a a boat cover but just for the nose cone.

If you own the storage area that it is under cover you could make a door to shield the end.

I found a roof and front cap cover at Camping World. It is amazing the difference it makes in temperature on the front of my 5th wheel that has a dark front cap. I bought a cover that is smaller in length than the 5th wheel. I fold it under on my roof and fastened down with the provided straps. Good product so far.

Good answers here you guys. I'm also having that problem- have a nice carport for my RV, but the sun does hit the front every afternoon. I think I'm going to go the cheap blue tarp route on mine. I also get mid-afternoon sun on the south side, but I think I'm going to just add 2 more lengths of metal down the side.

This is what I ended up doing. Found a mesh tarp at harbor freight, stretched a 5/32 wire cable across the top of my shed, weaved the cable through the tarp. Tied both sides with cable ties and para cord ( para cord on the end that opens) works great, allows the wind to blow through and blocks 70% of UV rays. Went back and doubled tarp for more protection. So far so good. I haven't figured out yet how to post a picture on this format yet but if you want pictures and know how to do it let me know and I'll send you some.

If you want something more custom you may want to call a boat "canvas" maker. I had a custom cover made for my boat, they can make anything that they can measure (usually). won't be the cheapest answer though.
