Sticking to Class Bs, this is Solar Womp built by Advanced RV. It has 1150watts.



That is probably the max out number. I believe Mike Wendland and Campskunk have around 900watts in their beta test EcoTreks.

Solar Womp was built for a single purpose of spending a week in the August Nevada desert at Burning Man. It has some other air conditioning innovations and no windows other than the cab area and sliding door. I think the owner has discussed it here in the past.

Just to give some perspective on how much that is, I put 1280 watts on my bus - IMG_3607.jpg

Wincrasher how are you liking the new bus? Any big trips in it yet? Looking at your photos and other class A's the outside storage and space for system handling is really nice compared to a B.

That certainly doesn't occur very "stealth".

Lovin' it. Getting ready to head out west soon. Been spending the time doing mods on it - has taken alot longer than I thought, but I like how all of them have gone.

My big lithium battery is coming tomorrow, and I'm very excited to get it installed. Then I will be done with all the planned projects.

I might take a long weekend down to the coast. We having unusually warm weather lately, so it might be an enjoyable trip.
