Your figures aren't healthy.
I'm fairly sure that your charge something in the house and take it to the van idea is really a non starter since effectively you'd need to be charging another set of batteries and exchanging them each time to get the job done.
There are some options like a little onboard gas generator. A few people on here have those and have rated them highly. I confess, having had a couple demonstrated to me. that I found them a bit noisy. Then there's a small generator you can keep in the van and run out side when it's needed. The Honda i10 is a good option for that, if a bit expensive. There are copies at very favourable prices. I've used that method and found it Ok so long as there were no neighbours. People have made elaborate enclosures to silence them. Don't know how effective that would be but it would be bulky. All of the generator options are more or less noisy and will probably annoy neighbours.
Then there's the Efoy. If they're still selling them. Mot a lot of power out put but silent and will bring batteries up overnight. Very expensive.
I'll post some options.
Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.
