Blocking the Hot Texas Sun On the Roof of Our Tiffin

Blocking the Hot Texas Sun On the Roof of Our Tiffin

We bought our 2006 Tiffin Allegro Bus, ready to hit the road, and then I took a pilot job that keeps us in Dallas for many months. So we're full timing, and don't have good shade for the roof. Are there attachments (suction cup or whatever) that I could mount on the roof to block sunlight and help keep us from boiling?

We have read a lot about the air conditioning units, selective use of ceiling fans, windows, cooking outside, etc., but Dallas can get so hot. We thought someone out there, a whole lot smarter and more experienced than us, might have some big answers. Thanks for anyone and everyone's help.

I have thought about going to a tent and awning place and having them make, to size, a portable carport with white canvas top... This would give me sun protection, plus air ventilation if placed above the roof line at the edge about 6 inches...

I have a portable carport now and I know I could make one work.. But it would have to be made to your specs (length etc).. just an idea... and you could fold it up and take with you... or am sure you could recoup your investment, if you were to move out of the "hot" area..

Added note.. Would have to devise so you were not to interfere with existing awning...
