Fitting a Solar Panel to the roof of a Sprite Musketeer TD 2012

I want to fit a solar panel to the roof of my new Sprite Musketeer TD but I need to know the layout of the wood frame of the roof in order to secure the panel. Are there any technical drawings or does anyone know the layout of the roof. I have searched the internet but am not able to find anything.


Your best bet would be to take a trip to your local Sprite dealer. Hopefully they should be able to advise you.

Fitting a solar panel to a caravan roof

I would seriously advise you not to screw through the roof as this is compromising the water-tightness of the unit.

Better to purchase a length of T section aluminium from somewhere like:-
http://www.metals4u.co.uk/aluminium/t-section/2-x-2-x-18/detail.asp?prd_id=9092. Make 4 large 'brackets' (just under the length of half the longest side of the panel) from it and use stainless steel bolts to bolt the panel to the inverted T section.

Then use CT1 mastic/silicon to adhere it to the roof.

I've used this method many times and it has never failed.
Hope this helps
