Less expensive and more cost-effective than rooftop solar – works even if your Airstream is parked in the shade!
Our super lightweight, Portable Solar Kit delivers 170 watts of solar power and is compatible with lead-acid (including AGM) and lithium batteries. Unlike rooftop solar panels, our system allows you to move the panels to where the sun is shining (within 25 feet of the Airstream), and angle them to optimize solar capture.
For less than $1,000 you get a powerful and flexible system that fits in the wardrobe or backseat of your tow vehicle and weighs only 18 pounds!
If you already have a rooftop solar system, our Portable Solar Kit works in tandem with it, enabling you to harness even more power from the sun.

No wiring, no drilling, no installation needed
It's ready to go out of the box and takes only a few minutes to set up.
To set up the solar kit: Simply unfold the tri-fold solar panels onto their legs, hook up the charge controller, and plug the system into the solar charge port on the A-frame. Once connected, the system charges your Airstream's batteries automatically and shuts off when they are full.
If your trailer is a model year 2016 or earlier, you probably don't have a factory solar port. You'll need to purchase this adapter to connect your trailer's 7-way cord plug into the system.
