Fitting a solar panel

I have an auto roller 700 and use my roof space for kayaks and a roof box.

I'd like to place a solar panel on it, but was thinking about placing it near where the hump starts to flatten out on behind the Luton.

Anyone fitted one yet ?

Just wondering if you ever did this and if so, what did you go for and how easy was it ?

I've got a 600G and also carry kayaks so I'm looking to place a panel in the same location.

You could fit the semi-flexible solar panels to the humped section of roof, and install a cable entry gland to the cupboard with the roller door. This will free up the solid structual section of the roof for storage boxes and kyaks etc.
