    Hello, if anyone out there has an Autotrail Tracker FB 2013/2014 I need some advice regarding amount of roof space please. I am collecting a 2014 FB at the end of May. I'm trying to work out if there will be enough room on the roof for 2 x 85w Solar Panels and an 85cm Oyster Satellite dish? Thank you in anticipation.

    Hi enjohn45.
    I see no-one has responded so here goes..
    We have had two Trackers, one had a roof rack fitted and a large central Heki rooflight, so I'm sure you will manage to fit 2 x 85w
    solars and a dish.. BUT, why not just fit 1 x 175w panel ??
    We have got 1 x 100w panel on our new Tracker and that leaves plenty of room for a dish (if we wanted one).
    I can only assume you have already got the panels ??
    Mitch..

    IF its plated @ 3500Kg.

    MMM quote:

    "THE VERDICT
    It's well made and compact with lots of luxury touches, but it's let down by the limited payload and tapered rear bed design. Payload is only 370kg (or 220kg at 3500 kg)"

    Thanks jenny and mitch for replying to my question. Yes, you're absolutely right, I already have the 2 x 85w solar panels. If I was starting from scratch I would have gone for the one 175w panel out of choice. From what you are saying it sounds as though I won't have to go over my budget any more than I have done already!
