How portable do you need it to be?
What's the budget?

For an Escape 150 plus a Boulder 30 panel with tripod from GoalZero, you will pay over $700. (half of which you will have to throw away and replace in 2 years when the battery goes bad...)

You can put together your own stationary (or portable if mounted on the roof of an RV) system for $500 or so using discrete components, the battery of which will cost about $75 to replace when it goes bad.
