Building a Lightweight Portable Solar Array

I don't know if it was posted here on the forum, or it was in some other group. I didn't save the URL and now I cannot find it through any searching. I'm hoping that the group knowledge here as the link.

Someone posted a link to a YouTube video on how to build a lightweight solar panel array using flexible panels and PVC tubing for the frame. It had flexible stand mounts, and they were using a Harbor Freight dual suction cup lifter to mount the panels on the side of the trailer which allowed for better angles to the sun.

Has anyone seen this and can post the link?

Dang Colby, I've seen that somewhere as well.

Seems like it was a member on one of the RV forums.

The member had pictures and then had a YouTube video of it as well.

I looked on IRV2 and Forest River and can't seem to find it either.
