      My TC is stored in AZ, west side of house (only place possible), no shade but lots of sun a good deal of the day.

      I am thinking about a cover to protect the TC, though it seems that would keep it even hotter.

      Any tips on how best to store the TC under mentioned conditions and any thoughts on using a cover? (Got one from Empire for truck and the straps quickly broke off, as did the way too thin strings so I had to get bungee cords and rope. Had contacted seller after first week and no reply, so not exactly something I’d recommend.)

      I think some kind of cover is a good idea if for nothing other than stopping sun fade. I keep our fifth wheel covered with a soft cover as we use it less often, but putting a soft cover off and on our TC would be a pain as we use it frequently so I am building a small metal roofed shelter for it. I think anything you do to keep a truck camper covered will help preserve its value.

      Harvey,

      Trailer Life had a mfr comparison in 2015 @ http://www.trailerlife.com/rv-gear/gear/cover-to-cover/.

      I tried unsuccessfully to find another article around the same time-frame, maybe older, that specifically addressed which material was better for various continental US locations but can’t seem to locate it at this time.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks for link Stan. I am looking at Adco and Calmark as the article mentions. Calmark was also recommended to me by someone else who lives in AZ and said a cover was highly recommended.
