I have to say I'm really impressed with the tank capacities of the Wildcats. 60 gallons of fresh water and 50 gallons for the black tank. That really makes the Wildcats boondocking friendly.

Maybe just a rack or provisions for mounts for a solar panel?

Interesting idea... but is there a standard size? Makes it difficult. But interesting nonetheless.

If anyone knows of a solar pack that works really well and is also affordable for customers please let me know. I for one love the idea!

Commercial solar packages are expensive. Solar panels come in various sizes. The best option would ne to provide the reinstalled wiring from the roof down into the cabin .

It's that time of the year when we do a lot of final testing and planning for changes to the features and options... any one else have more to say on Dry Camping/Boondocking? Your comments and suggestions are being shared!

There is an electronic battery monitor that is ideal for serious dry camping. Measures the draw and current voltage of your battery. I think its called a Trimetric??? Many members here and on other forums had suggested it to me, but the shunted wiring was complex. Having the wiring done or offering it as an option would be awesome.

This thread has been interesting. In the future I will upgrade to a 5th wheel and fresh water and grey water tanks are my main concern since I will be hunting out of it and not really be able to refill or dump very easily. 30-40 gallons depletes and fills fast.

I would consider getting a Wildcat if they threw in a rep to ride along all the time and do all the lifting for me.

I was thinking more along the lines of having one empty that 50 gallon black tank
