Sale price$ 949.00


Light, powerful, and simple—that's our new Portable Solar Kit

Our exclusive Airstream Life Portable Solar Kit will give you up to 170 watts of silent, clean power anytime the sun shines. You can set it up in about one minute, and it will charge your Airstream's batteries automatically.

  • No need for expensive installation, special wiring, or drilling
  • Works with any Airstream trailer
  • Deployable anywhere up to 25 feet from your Airstream
  • Super lightweight—only 18 pounds!
  • Folds down to a size that's easy to store

Every serious Airstream traveler should bring along some solar capability, even if you already have a generator or camp mostly with hookups.  With our portable panels, you can enjoy longer stays at beautiful remote campsites where electricity isn't available, and reduce the need for a generator.

We believe our 2nd generation solar kit is the best in the industry. It's lighter, simpler, more powerful, and more efficient than the competition. Everything you need is in the convenient carry bag.

Our kit includes:

  • a set of 3 lightweight and flexible panels which fold down for travel, complete with collapsible legs
  • solar charge controller, compatible with standard, AGM, and Lithium batteries
  • color coded cables to make setup quick and easy
  • 25-foot extension cable
  • an adapter cable for connecting to the existing solar plug on newer Airstreams
  • zipper case with carrying handle for each set of panels
  • complete Instructions

If you have a trailer without a factory solar port (generally 2015 and earlier) we have a special adapter to connect to your trailer's 7-way cord.

The long extension cable gives you flexibility to put the panels exactly where the sun is shining, which means you can keep the Airstream in the shade while still charging on solar.

And there's one more thing you'll only get from the Airstream Life Store: our own guide: "Tips For Using Solar Power".  This guide explains the best way to use your panels, conserve power, recharge and maintain your Airstream batteries, and more!


Tech Specs:

Two-year manufacturer's warranty

A 170 watt kit weighs just 18 lbs so it's easy to carry. The panels, cables, and charge controller are fully weatherproof and can withstand rain and snow.

The panel set is 28" x 23" when folded (fits in many Airstream wardrobe closets) and 28" x 68" when open.

Maximum rated output power is 170 watts—40% more than our first-generation kit!  These are high-efficiency monocrystalline panels.

The charge controller is a 20 amp Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) type, which is far more efficient than cheaper PWM controllers, especially on cloudy days.

The extension cable is 8 AWG, heavier and more efficient than typical 10 AWG wires, marine-grade, with UV protection. 

Our Merlin panels use 20 redundant internal bus lines and over 2,000 interconnects. This means they offer higher reliability and far better performance in real-world conditions than competing panels. They're less affected by shading and low sun angle, and are designed to endure harsh environments.
