I have gone to Amsolar.com for years to get solar panels and installation items. A fixed panel installation on a camper is far superior to one you have to take out and place on the ground and then hope it does not get stolen.

The Renology and other panels are very inexpensive and can be purchased online at homedepot.com and newegg and then they are drop shipped to your home. $100 for a 100 Watt 21V panel.

Panels on the roof are charging as long as there is daylight and this includes while you are driving or parked or camped. It also helps to keep the house battery bank fully charged and ready for use.

Another great source for connectors and solder for large electrical cables is delcity.net. Far better electrical and mechanical connection with their connectors made for use with solder plugs. Add a little flux inside the connector and heat it with a propane torch until the solder melts and then jam in the end of the cable. Far superior to using crimped connections and no heavy duty crimping tool is needed.
