What do you all think about this solar panel from Northern Tool?

http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...3174_200263174

It's on sale right now. I was thinking of getting two of them, along with a regulator to avoid over charging. Purpose would be to keep battery charged when I'm not there and to reduce generator usage when I am there.

I have three of these

I have three of these and use a charge controller... they work nice.. but bulky to take on trips with you.

I'm using my trailer as a Park model so bulk is not a concern.

Would one panel be sufficient to keep your battery charged? We haul a small utility trailer with us and this would be ideal mounted on top of that trailer when we are camping.
