solar panel

Hello, want to install a 140 watt solar panel to the top of my 21 foot BigFoot. Fit is a bit smaller than luggage rack and I'm thinking I can attach to rack forgoing holes through roof. I understand TV antenna will not rise but not a problem as I don't watch. Advice please. Thanks.

Watch for shadows. The biggest issue, aside from fastening the panel, is shadows being cast from AC, vents, antenna and the like. Even a 5% shadow will reduce a panel 50%.
