I am pretty satisfied with my 2 AGM batteries. They easily let me dry camp over a weekend and I don't have to be too careful about power usage, but solar would sure be nice.
Sorry, I haven't updated to this thread lately. It was fast and furious trying to get the solar installed and then I've been busy using them.
I ended up with 2 AM Solar 150 watt panels on top. I ran them inline with the trailer between the front and mid roof vents - they just barely fit.
I think I was a bit aggressive on the size, as I ran for 4+ weeks this summer without depleting the batteries any where near 50% of their capacity.
