A family member has a Wind Jammer with dual batteries. He made a double decker frame and the covered it with diamond plate to dress it up. Looks very nice and works quite well.

Looks good. Where can I buy a dual battery rack like that for my V-Lite?

Battery Rack

Swaggler: I don't know of any that are available in the market. I welded mine from angle iron

A second battery is a must on these trailers. When we picked our trailer up from the dealer it only had 1 and the sales guy said it would suffice. Well there I was at 2 in the morning hooking my truck up to the trailer with booster cables to keep the furnace going! I brought the trailer in thinking it was a bad battery but the service guy made the mistake of telling me that the battery is too small for the trailer. Well imagine that! Had them install a dual battery tray and put in a couple of 6V Trojans. Now I can camp for days anot have to worry about power.

I agree, a dual battery tray should be standard equipment on these. I am sitting in my TV now at Assateague Island charging the trailer battery. My generator broke down yesterday and today the battery was all but dead. So here i sit on a sunny day charging a woefully inadequate battery.

I also got a similar response from the dealer when I inquired about a dual battery tray they asked, "why would you want 2 batteries?" LOL, go figure.

Very similar to the mod on my 3001w. Works fine. I put in 2 6vs with 130 solar unit. Keeps my going for days.
