Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

The options that you would want will depend upon what type of Airstreaming you intend to do. If you plan to boondock, solar might be nice to have.

Welcome from Colorado: You decided to purchase one of the finest travel trailers made. Airstreams are special and very different from the other brands.

One of the more basic options is an awning. We use ours a lot. It is pleasant to be outdoors and not in the hot sun, or a rain shower. Like friend moosetags said, you have to have a good reason to invest in a solar system. Lots of boondocking off the grid and yet in the sun is a good reason. I use a generator to keep my batteries charged and run the AC if needed. Generators are somewhat limited too due to noise. You don't want to disturb fellow campers nearby. Your Sport is probably coming with an air conditioner. You will appreciate that option down south. We have no need for a TV. You might consider a signal booster for your phone or hotspot for good connectivity. I think your sport is single axle, thus a spare tire is good thing to carry.

Others will have better thoughts and advice for you I'm sure.
