RV cover with solar panels

I am going to cover my 37' MH but have solar panels on the roof that I need to keep exposed for battery trickle ( I have Auto Gen installed)
Anyone know of a good source?
Also, what type of material is best for sun protection that will last for sometime?

Just curious why you feel a need to cover the RV.... RVs are out in the elements year-round.

I guess you can forget about solar panels if you use a cover or carport. My previous MH I bought a cover it lasted about 4 years. I purchased a steel carport for the rev to help protect it from the elements. The gens exhaust can melt a cover I found out from experience.
