Enjoy,

that is nice if what is available is well suited to your needs.



I myself don't want to deal with the bulk of the ridged portable panels. I can make a frame that is easy to assemble and takes next to no space to store. Then tie the folding panel to it. I design and make lots of things for my trailer, things that have advantages of being lighter in weight and more compact to store as well as still being nice and strong.

Nothing I know of takes "next to no space to store." While the panel may be thinner you still have the legs, controller and wires. The Renogy is only 2.8" thick. Dimensions are 20 x 27 x 2.8" and that includes everything, including the charge controller and needed wires to the battery. I suppose one could also consider that "next to no space to store." I can easily slide 20 x 27 x 2.8" in numerous spaces in our camper or truck, so that's a moot point. At 27 lbs you might save what, 10-15 lbs, if that. That's nothing in the scope of things (1-2 gallons of water).

That Renogy is a simple system, well thought out, stores easily, at a decent price. I do understand that you enjoy cobbing a system together, but the OP said "simple" and "system." And that was my intended point.

Enjoy,

Perry
