Get a styrofoam shipping box or even a cooler and then you'll keep the temp more consistent for the trip. My Eheim 2215 only uses 9 watts and I can run a small heater and the canister using a 75W DC to AC inverter (under $30) in my minivan.
Personally, I think you'd be fine if you fast the fish for a day or two before the trip (cuts down on waste), box them up in a cooler, use a battery air pump (or use the DC to AC inverter to use a standard air pump!), You should be good to go!
18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.
