    Maplins 80w panel £609 they must be joking :Angry:, they didn't cost that much 5 years ago. Under £100 on ebay and Amazon.

    The 60w panel they do is not only overpriced but is an amorphous panel, no good for a motorhome as too big and heavy.

    Hi chrisdave
    Just get yourself a length of angle alloy from B&Q or ebay and make your own up, I made mine about 8in long so as to get plenty of adhesion onto the roof:thumb:

    Something like this
