Hi destinyboy,
I bought ours from "Deals Direct" on ebay for around $200 + $30 delivery.
I certainly does not hit 140 watts too often but regularly pumps 7 amps into the battery which is more than enough to keep up with the demand of an 80 ltr fridge and a light at night.

I have a Bit Deals one and seems fine, I bought it based on recommendation from this forum a few years ago.
Don't know if they are still selling the same quality product now or not.

destinyboy,
Just for you to compare, I used Low Energy Developments Pty in Melbourne on Dec 2012.
I bought a 130w panel for $169, and I picked it up.
I checked ebay - for a 120W $165 and free delivery. There are a lot to choose from.

Cheers,

Bill

Might check out http://www.aussiebatteries.com.au/ I got their panels and am about to attach to our slip-on pod. They had a size that would fit the very specific dimensions we had, due to the design and size of the ute tray.
Always worth having a couple of places to check out.

Suggest you read some serious stuff about Solar Panels and sun angles before mounting it on the roof. Plus you will need to constantly move the vehicle into the sunlight for them to be effective. Remember the 'angle of the dangle' is most important.
