Mounting solar panel to roof

I have a one piece fiberglass roof on my coach. What is the best way to mount solar panels to this?

3M make an Adhesive Tape/Pad/Strip that works very well. Or Drill Holes for Well Nuts and plenty of Dicor Sealant.

I used 3M VHB tape, BUT you must check out the load. I had a long talk with a 3M engineer and there are formula for the amount of contact necessary for wind load etc.
The good aspect no holes in the roof.
