Roof mount Brackets for Solar Panel

I have a Kyocera 135w solar panel and would like to mount it to the roof of an 83 airstream. Does any body know where I can get brackets that will work on the curved roof?

Is the best option to custom make aluminum solar brackets for airstreams?

AM Solar sells a bracket that has a peel & stick adhesive that is unbelievable! The brackets do not need to be curved as the radius of the AS over the short distance of a couple of inches the brackets require is minimal.

I used door hinges for my brackets, Standard hinges on the top, 4 inch strap hinges on the bottom. You can the take the panel side of the lower hinges loose and swing the panel up to get at the electrical connections, or even polish under there if you want.
