Default Gulf Stream Vista Cruiser MB Compatible to Solar?

Hello All,
I'm contemplating buying a 2005 Gulf Stream Vista Cruiser MB. I'm wanting to add solar panels to make the vehicle self-reliant. Does anyone know if this type of RV is compatible to solar and where to go to have this done and approximate cost? Thanks for any help in advance!

.

You can put solar on any vehicle
as long as you have a surface to mount the panels.

The Vista Cruiser looks like a good candidate.

The basic component you will need are:
1. Solar panels
2. Charge controller
3. Battery

Go check out your local supplier,
or check the web for basic information.
You can find all the explanations and installation instructions on the web.

Feel free to ask if you have any specific questions.

Check the youtube. Lots of RV solar videos.

Actually, you don't even need a surface to mount the panel.
Some people use portable panels when they camp.
