Whilst at the sea front aire at Dieppe recently I saw two motorhomes with vertical axis wind turbines on the back. Thinking this seemed a good idea I had a Google and most of the motorhome related info seems a few years out of date. The turbines i saw at Dieppe ran quite silently (maybe due to the slight breeze blowing) and looked bigger than the ones Maplins are offering. anyone know of some up to date info???

They are simply not big enough to produce any useful power and it would have to be stowed when travelling - and they won't be silent either, especially if you are trying to get to sleep. Might be a solution for keeping batteries topped up during long term storage but I can't see any advantages over solar unless the MH was being stored in a Dutch barn, ie there was a roof overhead.

Ray (Dingray) has had one on his van for years now and it seems to work well. No noticeable noise or vibration. Maybe send him a PM .........
