Newbie - Q on Solar PV and Wall Panels

Hi -

Just bought my first AS and taking delivery soon (used of course - 2000, 31' Excella). There are two things I want to do, but can't seem to find good guidance.

1. Install Solar PV - I have a bunch of Kyocera 120W panels and am thinking of throwing 3 or 4 up there (360-480W). Is there pre-wiring for solar on the 2000 31' Excella? Wire Ratings? Best way to mount? if not, has anyone come up with a DIY method for roof mounted panels on the Excella 31'? Suggestions on battery chargers and/or if an inverter is needed or desired - if i add additional batteries (have 2 now).

2. Put new wall coverings on - looking at getting precut stainless panels. Does anyone know how to get a hold of dimensional drawings for the walls (including arcs/radii)? The company i found will take any drawing and cut custom panels (up to 4x8').
