Would never criticize anyone's handy work, also good to see people take the initiative but not when it come to road worthiness and the centre of gravity.

Yup, We have solar too, but I'm thinking this guy would win the boondock contest.

With that many solar panels.....you can save a bundle on curtains or shades.

He's got a lot of cords and wires running around his camper. What is that opening, or whatever, to the left of the rear solar panel.?

Looks like maybe a window air conditioner wrapped in something?

Just think of the power he could capture if he used panels as an awning too. Could probably sell power to nearby campers if they have long enough extension cords.

One hail storm in the Midwest and he would be out thousands. Are the cords bungies to keep the panels from flapping driving down the road or what?

Look close at the picture, there a sign on the back of that car, I don't think it's a model T , it says "Chity, chity bang bang" what was that car with Dick Vandike, that flew?

The Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang car was designed for the film. Not based on any real car.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chitty...Bang_Bang_(car)

BTW: The book the movie is based on was written by Ian Fleming, of 007, James Bond, fame.
