Do the window covers significantly help with keeping the inside cool? How was power provided at Burning Man?

What is the name of your awning set up and where did you get it?

Yes, covering all the windows with Reflectrix makes a big difference in the temperature inside the trailer, and helps keep the fine alkaline dust from sneaking in.

There is no power at Burning Man at all.  We have a generator that we run once a day to charge up the interior lights, etc. and use the microwave when we make bacon for gifting, but otherwise we are all on solar lighting and a couple battery powered fans when we sleep.  We've been lucky with the temperature out there, and it hasn't been too hot to sleep, but if we needed to we'd power up the generator to run the AC for a while.

The top of the awning is a custom-made piece of Aluminet.  It's the best for heat reflection while still letting light through.  That's a 20'x23' tarp, with grommets every foot.  It's not cheap (was about $250 from Gothic Arch Greenhouses), but it's the best and it should last a long while.

The poles are the uprights from a commercial carport structure (like from car sales lots) we have.  It's just too much work to set up the whole thing with only two of us.
