Great Expedition Vehicle for Sale.
I bought this as an expedition vehicle to be truly off grid. I love this thing. I just completed this, I bought it brand new on 3/18/19. I only got to use it twice! We have changed our plans in life as often happens, deciding to build a house and we are just not going to have enough time to use this thing unfortunately.
I am an electrician and solar installer and wanted a true off grid RV to take to the beach/national parks. I didn't want to be limited to RV Parks and being on top of other RV'ers tethered to a pole. I also didn't want to have listen to a generator all day. Soo... insert this rig.
Tons of warranty time left on this for the solar equipment and the trailer itself.
There are two independent solar systems on the trailer, I will separate the installs for both out:
Here is what has gone into it -.
Main Solar System (Powering Camper Internals):
-12 Renogy 100W Monocrystalline Solar Panels
-Custom Aluminum Solar Panel Mount, bolted/caulked/sealed through the roof. This thing isn't going any ware. It is stout and solid.
-6 AGM 100AH Deep Cycle Batteries (UB12100 Model), top rated batteries. There is room for 6 more if new owner wants more storage - but there has been plenty for me.
-Epever MPPT 80 amp Charge Controller (this is overkill for this system, but an awesome unit)
-4000W pure sine wave power inverter
-2 or 4 AWG wiring used throughout (Over $1500 in wire alone on this rig).
Back Up Solar System (Powering Outdoor Lighting, Powered Jack, Bait well)
-1 Renogy 100W Solar Panel
-1 AGM Deep Cycle Battery mounted on the front of the trailer.
-Renogy 30A PWM Charge Controller
-Bait well bucket port
I also wired in an umbilical cord with a quick connect that allows me to connect the trailer to my trucks diesel engine if I need to charge other then solar or between locations. I wired it so that every component can be turned on and off with hi-current switching. So solar can be on and truck off, truck on and solar off, etc. If you want to use this functionality on your truck, I can show you what you need to do - you need about $50 in parts to do it + wire.
A ridiculously large amount of other stuff has been done, but that is the main part. I rewired and improved almost every aspect of this trailer.
You can run the A/C on it, however it will only run at peak solar generation time (middle of the day). Need about 20 more panels to run the A/C continuously. I am ok without the A/C most months of the year here in Texas. June-Aug I bring my portable generator if I want A/C. Everything else on the trailer will run independently and continuously on the solar and batteries. It is just not practical to get enough panels to run the A/C. I accepted that going in, but it is very cool to be able to run Fridge, AC, Microwave and everything else freely without the need for a generator.
My total investment is over $70k. Unit is in Austin Texas. The only place it has gone is from Austin to Corpus Christy which is 200 miles. I spent $400 and had it detailed and waxed when I got back. This rig is like new.
