All of the above is before we get to the tow vehicle. And on EV I am spectacularly ignorant.

But not so with solar electric systems for travel trailers. AM Solar would be my only choice for DIY. A couple of techs I'd trust.

I could see taking an otherwise suitable TT and adding solar to reduce weight, but only if it had met the more important criteria first.

I've no idea whether such could help "fuel" the EV, but if it could, that'd sure as hell change the boondocking equation. Maybe not a lot, so I'm ready to see what's reasonable. Apt.

Fuel for persons and vehicles is at the center of things. Time and distance. Duration.

Vehicle longevity is second tier. But equally important. For both.
