Key features

Space efficient

There are four models that all provide an adjustable and secure method of mounting your REDARC fixed solar panel to your roof rack. Concerned about running out of space on your vehicle? The MPB001 and SMPB004 bracket sets may be for you. These position the solar panel lower than the crossbars allowing you to easily use your roof rack with the solar panel installed.

DIY installation

Installation is said to be both quick and easy; all hardware required for installation is conveniently included. You can additionally couple REDARC’s solar panels with their Manager30 or BCDC chargers, allowing them to charge from solar and DC simultaneously. They both include in-built MPPT solar regulators and Green Power Priority.  


I don’t know about you, but when I’m off-grid I like to completely disconnect. Having solar panels mounted to the roof of my vehicle is a huge bonus as it means I can relax and get on with my adventures, without having to worry about running out of power. REDARC makes this convenient and possible for those of us who want to spend more time off-roading.
