Pretty open question.

What are your goals? Battery maintenance while in storage? Minimize / eliminate genny runtime while dry camping?

Are you looking to DIY or need a full service installer?

Welcome to the forum.

Knowing specifics will result in much more accurate information. There is also a website "The 12 volt side of life" among many others and thousands of videos on YouTube. I bet if you looked on the boondocking part of the forum you will find much more information and have more informative results.

Howdy Ken, a "good" solar installation takes some work - mostly educational. There is a learning curve but once you get thru it you will understand how and why your system works. It is worth the pain! :-)

Start with an energy audit or "budget" (Energy Audit - Watt For? - JdFinley.com
). This is figuring out what your current power requirements are. Once you have real data in hand, it will be much easier to begin exploring the options based on your goals.
