Scampís factory installed solar

Iím getting ready to finally order my 19í Scamp, ( ) and I am going through and deciding what options I may need. I do want to use solar, and wanted to know what Ďs included in Scampís solar panel kit and if it will be worth the $475 price tag, or if I should invest more in portable solar panels and power stations?

I just posted on another thread on this subject. The portable panel can be set up in the sun while your Scamp might be parked under a tree. But a permanently mounted panel is harder to steal. Everything is a trade-off.

That's a pretty good price for installed solar. Roof solar means it'll be charging your battery going down the road. I have both roof and portable and I recommend that for reasons stated. The total cost is tiny compared to the price of your new 19' Scamp.
And adding the portable later is easy, but not so with the roof installation.

You might look at the thread about flexible solar panels for a 19' scamp.
