After two years on a trip my solarpanel died on me. Not that funne when it is very warm.
So, a new one needed to come.
The old one was a thing one that was glued on the top of the trailer. And that caused the problem.
It could get rid of the heat.

So, now I had one old 80W panel and I bought a second 80W panel So I thought they would be the same.
Unfortunally, no.
So, in the near future I will buy another new 80W panel, just for the looks.

As i needed to have about 3cm of clearance under the panels, I had to make a kind of rack that would hold it all.
So, without any further delay, here are some pictures of my build

Drilled some holes for making the mounts for the tubes.

And I made the whole rack so it could be dissasembled in pieces
