AM Solar found those panels had issues and decided not to carry them. I'd also be reluctant to tape that much surface area down. It may be near impossible to remove them.

We'll be using brackets to attach them to the roof. But I've already decided I'm not going to watch when they start drilling through the shell! 😬 we will seals the holes well to prevent any thing from getting in. I'll be sure to post pictures! Yes the undulating roofline will make it more of a challenge but I know my guys will get it done right.

When we ordered the panels, it was my understanding that they were shipping out of US warehouse. Though, it's been nearly a week and only the shipping label has been created - no movement. Hmm...

Hey everyone!

Thought I'd chime in since I'll be installing this with the help of our engineer friend (Lauren and myself own this camper together). We basically measured the flat surface of the roof and ordered panels that fit within those measurements. We're definitely drilling this to the roof. I have no idea if the panels come with brackets. I was planning on having to possibly make custom brackets anyways. My only fear in this is the height of the panels since we have to go over the riser in the roof. That riser has to be around 4" high at center. The panels will be mounted as far back as possible, but should we fabricate some form of faring on the front panel to close the gap between the panel and the camper? We could run the panels fairly close to the riser, but we'd have the larger gaps off to the sides of the riser.
