Interstate Car Cover

Does anyone know where I could get a cover for an Interstate? I want to cover the Airstream so that people can not look in and see all the goodies and protect it from the hot California sun when in the drive.

Thanks!

Covering the Airstream is considered to be a bad idea for the finish. Cut out pieces for insulating wrap to size for the windows.

U never cover a Airstream. Whats a better Ideal is either U apply the reflective film or have it done. The the mirror film will prevent the sun from getting in and doing damage and keep prying eyes out.

Are you asking to cover an Airstream Interstate or use a cover for an Interstate on an Airstream Trailer?

Cut the reflective material to fit the windows and insert it inside the coach. If you want to cover the Airstream totally, consider a portable garage. If you put an actual cover on the Airstream (touching the skin) you will more than likely rub black marks into it.

If you are asking about covering a painted Airstream Interstate motorhome, you can get covers from places like Camping World.
If you are asking about covering your trailer, it is not a good idea, because the cover will move in the wind, abrading the clearcoat.
I have gotten a couple of rolls of reflective foil insulation (like found for automobile windshields), and cut it to fit the windows. It rolls up when we want to see out, and stows in a storage locker.

I don't plan on covering the AS28', but I am thinking about buying a Airstream Interstate Motor home and would like to cover it so people will not be able to see in and protect it from the birds etc.
