Mounting Solar Panels on popup top

I just purchased 4 100 Watts Renogy solar panels.


Need advice on how to install on top of SMB pop up top.


Can I drill into the roof and use the Z-mounts that came with the panels?
Don't know what material SMB popup top roof is made of. Can it be drilled?
Should I use screws or bolts?

If yes, what about sealing against leaks?


OR, do I need to install a roof rack and mount panels to the track?


Please help!
