Rocker mounting feet allow the panels to tilt in either direction by using AM Solar's tilt bars. This involves loosening one side of the panel and adding the tilt bar to each end. You will need a ladder to access the panels, but not a very tall one as Airstreams are one of the lowest profile RVs available.

I bought a collapsing aluminum ladder to access my roof to tilt panels and whatever up there. Not cheap, but perfect for an airstream. Not terribly light either but I guess it's as light as possible since it is aluminum.
