   I was thinking about using one of my solar water panels that is sitting in my barn  that i haven't used, it's 4' by 9' plenty of

  room between the Ac's.  Question is, has anyone ever used such a thing on a bus and is there any pros or cons for this?

I am curious how this turns out for you. I want to do the same, but I may end up making mine.

What does a solar water panel of that size weigh?

One good thing would be that it would shade the roof, every little bit helps!

   I believe it's about the same, or Little less than the rooftop. I carried it into the barn from my van I hauled them in.

   Gus, you got that right, I hope to have it about 2-3 inches above the roof.
