Portable Solar for 2020 16' Caravel

Hello fellow Airstreamers! Wife and I are starting to do more dry camping and I am looking for suggestions on portable solar panels. our 2020 16' Caravel is "solar ready" and most of our trips are 3-5 days and sometimes as long as 2 weeks. What brand and what wattage do most folks use? I want to get enough wattage but not overkill. I have a generator already but prefer keeping that as a last resort. Thanks for any feedback!

i have 2 portable panels acquired over the last 5 years.

1) Samlex 135W (3 fold)
2) GoPower 120W (2 fold)

I picked up a Zamp plug at the dealer, so I can tap into the trailer tongue connection. A little soldering and I am set.

I still only have the single 12V battery and I am waiting to get a solar generator when the right one pops up for sale.
