Partial Motorhome Cover

Has anyone ever seen a source for a partial motor home cover? My rig is parked under a shed facing north, and the rear end is open to the hot Texas sun all day long. I would like to find something that only covers the rear and sides up to the back tires. I've searched on line, but haven't had any luck locating anything. I'm not interested in a full cover, just the rear eight feet or so.

ADCO makes a roof top only cover but that is not what you are looking for. Personally, I do not see much of a market for an 8 foot cover so I think you are going to have to get creative.

Hey Lt Dan, I have the same problem, my coach is full exposure on the curb side in the afternoon scorching heat here in DFW.

I found a site that would probably be able to help you out. My problem is that I have to 'scoot' the coach over 10' after I back into the back yard.

Hope this helps!

Find a guy that does boat upholstery-- bimini tops,etc. have him make a custom cover out of sunbrella for you.
I've had covers made for my grill & table , sun shades for my outside entertainment center andf a few other odds and ends that match my awning.

Try a sail loft.

Or DIY. We used to make a lot of stuff with materials bought from sail rite. They sell all types of DIY materials, fasteners, clips, etc., and you can easily fabricate what you want if you have a decent sewing machine available and good help who knows what to do with it!
