Roof Cover

I'm trying to get a cover made from Tyvek material for the roof of my airstream to keep the UV off of the vents etc and use soft weights like sandbags to keep it in place. When I get the information from my source I'll post his website here. Is anyone else interested in this?

many folks that have used covers, have reported scuffing of the skin.

The acrylic used for the covers and skylights is pretty soft and easily scuffed. If you put something soft as a liner for your UV cover material make sure you pick a material that will not retain the rainwater that gets through the cover. Tyvek allows water to go through.
