Hey Kitesurfer, could you tell me a little more about how you did your solar panel on the fiberglass roof? I'm about to tackle that project with 300 watts in the next month or two.

It was installed as a factory option by the manufacturer but it looks like it is mounted to "L" brackets that are mounted into the roof. Sorry, not sure what they used to attach to the the roof as it is thin fiberglass.

No problem. I'll figure it out. My plans are solar, then switching to a big Truckfridge since my propane one is iffy, then I'll get to the lift etc. by the Spring maybe. I showed my wife. She loves it too. I hope you don't mind me copying your great idea! I already talked to Agile about lifting it a little but there's a 2000 mile problem.

Thanks Rick! Those look like a great solution for me. I think I might go that route.

Eric, I'll get in line behind Mac for your rig. Looking around for something along these lines for our planned 3 year travels for middle school, it would still be considered "van" schooling! We have 2 more years before we take off, so there's a little time, but would like some time with it before we hit the road. I like the idea of that lift and solar is a must, and if you wouldn't mind throwing on an aluminess bumper for me, that would be great

RE: AFE intake: I have it too and it's a perfect fit. I do remember when I put it in, that it came with 2 different pieces of hardware for installing. I don't remember if it was the MAF horn or the elbow. But there are two distinct figments, and maybe somebody installed the wrong one. Or bought the kit used and it was missing the extra hardware? I can see how the newer throttle body needs shorter hardware.
