This week the Airstream is on the road again. A quick trip for fun, and a little bit of business to do as well. Of course, I wanted to start off with the fun. Testing out our new Airstream solar power system in a big way by boondocking in a favorite location.
As long time readers know, I’m a huge fan of the National Monuments in the Southwest. And one personal favorite is Hovenweep National Monument. A beautiful campground (no hook ups for power or water), incredible ruins, and something we don’t see often at dry camping locations……. Incredibly fast 4G LTE service. So Hovenweep makes a perfect getaway spot where I can still work, but I still feel pretty far out from civilization!
Before I say much more, I’m just going to turn it over to the video I just published. You’ll get to see a little more, and hear a little more as well. And yes the Airstream is completely unplugged right now and running on solar only. It works so well, I should have done this years ago!
Good reads !! Thanks for your informative article. I believe we view the same point in terms of utilizing solar power 🙂
Where did you have the solar work done? Did I count six panels?
Wayne, we had Precision RV do the work on our Airstream. Marvin Braun did the installation for us. He’s done a ton of Airstreams and other RV’s and we found that he has a great track record with his customers. You can check him out at PrecisionRV.com
Oh and yes, 6 panels on our Airstream.
