Wiring for roof mount Solar in the trailer is the hardest part. The wiring to the battery or batteries is also very simple. Connecting roof mounted solar to your roof is the difficult part. Since I am partial to Zamp Solar, I would get their 160 Watt Deluxe Roof mount kit. There are even You Tube Videos showing the entire installation process. A good installer will charge no less than $450 for on roof panel installation.

I used both Portable and Roof Mounted. 120 Watt Portable and 160 Watt roof mount, with the option to add two additional 160 Watt or 100 Watt extension panels using the same Zamp Solar Charge Controller.
