I am getting solar panels put on the roof of my motorhome. My dealer carries the Go Power Electric Inc solar kits. Anyone have any experience with them? The catalogue information looks good. 25 year warranty on the solar module, complete wiring, 22amp digital charge controller to prevent overcharging. Easy expansion kits available.
110watt for $1,128 plus installation of course.
Getting a good customer 10% discount on the parts and the dealer is running a special winter(jan/feb) shop rate of $54 per hour.

$1,128 seems a little steep if your talking one solar panel. Have you checked around for prices, especially the internet? Last year a friend of mine only paid $465 for a 110-watt solar panel in Arizona. A good controller is under $300.

It seems rather steep to me too. Last January I had 2 x 125 watt solar panels and a Solar Boost 2000E controller fitted by Discount Solar in Quartzite for $1734 inclusive of fitting.

Price seems high--Look on the internet.

Look at the SunRunner Solar kits and do your own install.

Go to SolarOnSale --some of the best pricing around.
