as really want to be off the grid and this little camper only has 110 shore power hookup available.
You didn't mention where you are in CA or how far you will have to tow it home, BUT.... Before moving it take a look at the tires
, if it has been sitting for years, no matter how good the tires
look, if they are more than 6-8 years old a blow-out may be in your near future. If the tires
show any signs of cracking, get new ones before that first tow.
Also consider getting the wheel bearings checked/repacked before towing more than just a few miles.
Good luck and be sure to ask lots of questions.
