Tom, you could never by anything technology wise then, as it seems just about everything drops in price a year or two after it comes out. It seems while I wait for prices to drop on something, a newer better version I like better comes out, and costs at least as much.

That's why I'm still holding onto my 7 year old flip razr. As soon as I buy something else it will be outdated. My phone is so old I tell my students that I like "classics" and everything "old school" and they actually believe me. LOL!

Okay, these are the Trojan batteries (2) I'm looking to buy. Are they the best for someone (me) who plans to boondock a lot?

Trojan T105-RE Deep Cycle Battery Free Delivery most location in the lower 48*.

Second, if it can be mounted on my 16-foot Scamp, instead of the super expensive flexible 40W pair, I spied this one at Amazon:

Amazon.com: Ramsond 100 Watt 100w W Monocrystalline Photovoltaic PV Solar Panel Module 12V Battery Charging: Patio, Lawn & Garden

Good choice or are there better choices out there?

Thanks for any feedback!!!

Sharon

Batteries are a good choice , price with delivery looks fair. Have you talked to your local golf course? I was able to pick up some T 145s for about $124 at a nearby course. They liked them better than the T 105 but they are heavier.
Can't comment on solar as My only experience is with UHaul and factory mount.

I'm an admitted cheapskate. I would buy two 6 volt golf cart batteries from Costco and a solar panel from Solar Blvd or eBay.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
