sparky, hope I found the right floor plan. Is the entrance at the back end of the camper? Like it! Split bathroom with john privacy, great! What cu. foot frig is it? You are going to love it, but the feel of towing will be different after towing the popup so long. You'll get use to it. Don't ask me how I know.

12 volt compressors are definitely becoming more popular in small travel trailers. I think they do tend to cool off faster than absorption refrigerators, but I haven't heard of any major teething difficulties. I'm sure you'll be happy with your new camper!

I think the reason you are seeing a shift is because solar systems have come down so much in cost.
That price drop may be illusory. In August of 2021 I bought a solar panel for my Airstream. (Airstream's design requires a specific panel size to fit on the roof.) At that time, I paid $290 for it. This week I priced THE SAME PANEL FROM THE SAME COMPANY at $490 each. Oof.

Is that the 90-watt panel? If so, then oof indeed. Even $290 seems kind of high.

But if it's a specialty product, there's not much you can do.

As a "past-times" data point: Seventeen years ago (in 2005), the 175-watt solar panels I bought were $675 each. I bought more a little less than a year later, and they had gone up to $825 each. Ouch. I decided to just enjoy the fact that I had an appreciating asset on my RV.
