Which Maggiolina do you have? On my Grand Tour I just installed the fit kit that is available, which is like 4 gutter mounts bolted to the tent. I'm going to try to install my panel up there with a couple of Yakima cross bars and see how it goes.

I would probably go with the same type of urethane they use to install windshields. It has to be heated up to get it out of the tube, but it goes on easy so you could run a bead around the edges and then once cooled and hardened up I wouldn't be worried at all about it blowing off. That stuff is super strong, thats why they have special knives to cut windshields out.

I have a teardrop trailer I am going to put a flexible panel on and this is how I am going to do it.
