The 12 V solar complete sets
With a 12 V solar complete set you buy your piece of independence. Equipped with the right wattage, you can (with enough space on the roof, of course). Operate your motorhome, caravan, bus or boat far away from any shore power. We offer you a huge selection of solar sets in this category. All of these sets have been tested here at the company and tried out on various holiday trips.

Self-sufficient with solar sets
The 12 V solar set is probably the most important utensil for self-sufficient camping. We offer you a large selection of low-priced and high-class sets for camping. These sets for motorhomes, caravans and camping buses are easy to assemble and can normally be easily integrated into the on-board power supply system. Find the 12 V solar set that suits your needs here.
Here is a brief estimate of the size you need for your solar set:
- up to 80 watts solar set: light, pump, occasional heating
- up to 120 watts solar set: light, pump, heating, TV & satellite, smartphone
- up to 160 Watt solar set: light, pump, heating, TV/Sat, smartphone - tablet or possibly refrigerator
- 220 Watt solar set and more: light, pump, heating, TV/Sat, radio, fridge, laptop
When buying a solar battery, you should also keep in mind the electricity you need and the electricity you gain. After all, you want to be able to store what you have generated and use it as fully as possible. There are several options for batteries. AGM batteries are good, gel batteries are good, or you can opt for a 12V lithium battery for optimum usability. We will be happy to answer many questions about the different battery types in the Reimo installation guide: Battery.
What is Wp (Watt Peak) for a solar set caravan?
Perhaps you have already seen it, the size of a solar set is usually indicated with the abbreviation Wp. But what does this mean for the solar set for motorhomes, caravans and camping buses?
Wp is the estimated peak power of a motorhome or camping bus stand-alone system under standardised conditions.
These standard conditions consist of:
- Solar irradiation: approx. 1000W/m².
- Average temperature of 25° (solar panel)
- Air mass (Airmass)
The air mass is the measure of the length of the path that light needs to travel from the celestial body through the atmosphere to the ground.
Here is an attempt to explain what I have read with reference to the German weather:
In Germany, in a normal year, two thirds of the energy can be obtained in the summer half-year with a 100 WP solar set caravan, namely approx. 166 - 280 kWh of power per day. In the winter half-year it is a lot less, and that puts it into perspective. On average, we produce 60-100 kWh of energy per year with a 100 Wp 12 V stand-alone system. This means that the highest average output to be achieved, the peak of this motorhome solar set, is 100 Wp.

Solar kits for caravans, solar kits for camping buses, the structure of the solar kit.
Solar kits for caravans, solar kits for camping buses or camper vans are actually the same. The systems for motorhomes, caravans and camping buses, also called solar kits, are basically constructed in the same way. Take a look at the surface on which you want to mount your solar kit in advance. Often the space is blocked or the roof of your vehicle is not quite straight. In earlier times, this was a huge problem. Nowadays, flexible solar kits are available in many sizes and power ratings for special structural features.
