Yup!!!! Generators are becoming less popular daily. The cost of the generator may be more than a decent solar set up and there is no daily operating cost for the solar as there is for the generator -not to mention the extra weight of the generator vs the solar and the little problem of having to carry gas cans for it.

I'm with others on a preference for camping without hookups. The sites are almost always prettier and we prefer a natural, more rustic experience. The trailer gives us a sense of luxury (over tent camping). It's no problem to fill the water tank, put an ice block in the cooler, cook with propane and to run the lights off the battery. Even my portable sewing machine runs on batteries! For entertainment we hang around the campfire, read and actually converse with one another! The experience can't be beat!

Nice to hear from somebody else that can actually camp- and like it- on a single twelve volt battery!

Here in BC most of the Provincial Parks do not offer any hook-ups. They recently added power to a couple of parks but only a limited number of sites. Yes the campgrounds are full all summer with RV's. Would not go camping often if you couldnt get by with a single 12volt battery

I dislike generator noise as much as the next camper, that's why I said consider :-)

I only have a single battery, pretty sure I could go easily a week camping on it. Have all LED interior lights, plus the water pump, and that's basically all the things I have that use electricity. Unless it's winter and really cold, then the furnace would use a bit of electricity as well.
