New MH Cover Options?

Another Newbie question. Storage covers, etc?

I keep my MH at home under an full length(almost) awning. The front sticks out about 4.37(ok not exactly) feet. I have a noticed the afternoon sun really warms the front of the cab up as well as just general sun coming through the rest of the day.

So my question is how do folks cover this throughout the year while not being used? My unit came with a cover for the sides and front windshield. That seems ideal for having a sun shade but worry about using this long term - moisture, mildew, general wear and tear as this may not last long staying out in the elements. So my question is somewhat simple in that I am looking for options that I could consider.

Thanks in advance to this great wealth of knowledge that I have found.

You have 90% of it beat with the awning. I have never been concerned with the eliments except for UV hitting the tires or interior. Can you put the coach under the awning the facing other way to avoid the sun? I can, so I just shut the front cutains. They make what I will call sun blocking for windows, which is placed in the interior on the windows. It is foil faced and maybe 1/4" thick. It simply reflects the light and heat right back out and should last forever. I've never used it but see it all the time.

Personally I don't like outside covers. Especially if they don't breath and trap moisture. Of course if you only cover that 4.37', that wouldn't be a problem that I see.
