I am brand new to the site as well as the world of teardrops. I am glad to have found this website and hopefully will have the opportunity to meet many of you in the future.
I will keep my first post brief as well as direct.
Has anyone incorporated the flexible solar panels into their teardrop design? I saw a great item on Ebay today, and thought that if two were laid side by side on the leading edge as well as roofline of an aluminum skinned tear, it might work rather well. ebay clicky
I don't know what the average daily electrical draw is for most campers, but wouldn't a set of panels totalling 64 watts be enough to avoid plugging in anyplace???
The reason I ask is, as well as why I am learning about teardrops is because of my career. I work around the nation for various hospitals and am looking for a way to tote my stuff as well as have a portable call/bedroom when I am on site. I love retro designs like the Camp-Inn 550 and 560 models and it seems that a flexible panel like this would incorporate well into similar items.
I am looking to run interior cabin lights, recharge and play my ipod and laptop as well as ventilation fans. Think I could get away with these panels and never have to plug into an outlet?
