Solar and rv hookup

We would like to go the solar panel route. What do I need to buy to set up for solar panel usage but also have an rv hookup so we can plug in directly at campgrounds? We will have a mini fridge, our phones, and maybe a tv and DVD player. Not familiar with electrical and new to bus conversions. So any help I can get to explain in "dummy" terms would be much appreciated.

This article might help get you started. Shore power battery charger/converters (when plugged in) play well with solar charge controllers. So, if you already have a 120VAC system and battery, adding solar is a fairly simple matter of some panels and a solar charge controller.
