    I want to do that too on my roof rack of my 4runner,,,,never did, and I would be a little concerned about putting things/tying gear down on top of it ( not saying that is what You would do,,,just one of my worries when the panel costs a few hundred bucks)

    Also , the unisolar/ovonics panels wont be as efficient as other panels (maybe 9% to 14 % ) compared to others.

    also, I got around to doing some calculations,,,,if You were going to run a skilsaw for hour a day you would need about 2.5 to 3.75 square meters of panels on top (rough estimate) thats with a few batteries getting charged......
    a system with out batteries would need about 12 sq meters to run straight thru an inverter....something like 2250 watts worth of panels..

    otherwise charge batteries , and use it less often.

    just some thoughts
