I installed a 50W solar panel on the roof of my Scamp last month and it works very well.
The total cost was about $185.00 for everything.
I bring this up tody because I was in Camping World today. My Sunforce charge controller was $30.00 more at C/W.
I purchased my Panel and controller on ebay.
Ebay makes solar affordable.

Not one of my favorite charge controllers. My first choices are the Sunsei and Morningstar Sunsaver modules, or the (much more expensive) BatteryMinder unit.
