Installation of Flip Up Solar Panels On B Van

Has anyone seen this done? I have a space challenged roof, so I'm thinking of mounting the panels so they fold down on the side of the van when in transit, then can be flipped up to capture the sunlight when camped. I figure I can easily get 4x300 watt panels installed this way (two per side), with the added benefit that the panels will shade the van (blocking the upper windows) while I'm driving.

Posting this just in case anyone with a fiberglass top comes across this thread.

Apparently 3M makes an industrial epoxy that's strong enough to glue solar panels to the fiberglass roof.
