There are lots of RV parks that have good views and amenities without being a cookie cutter place, or just a parking lot. We found one this year up near where I-10 and I-19 meet in Tucson. It's called desert trails. $575 per month, includes taxes and electricity. $20 a night during the winter, pretty good

I second and third the lifestyle responses. I spend about $4K on our system and doubt it will pay for itself. However, we can go wherever we want and do whatever we want without plugging in and listening to a generator. If only we can figure how to get everyone in colorado campgrounds to do the same!

I am passionate about RV solar. Private email me if you want more info about the system I installed or advice a out how to do this yourself. It is a great and fulfilling DIY project.

Solar has limited applications. I sold my panels that I had at my stick and brick and bought a generator.

It depends on what one intends to do. Adding solar to ours was less than $1500. because the exhisting battery bank is 735 AH so it was adequate for our needs. All we needed was add the solar panels and a controler.
We are full timers and 90% of the time we are off the grid.
There are so many variables that payback time would be almost impossible to calculate. ie. power usage, amount of sunlight, each of these can vary greatly from day to day.
