Have you ever dreamed of traveling the country without sacrificing the comforts of home? Perhaps you???d like to retire and visit the natural wonders of the national park system. If this sounds like you, you might enjoy traveling in an RV. If you???re a true nature lover, you may worry about the environmental footprint of travel. Today???s modern RVs allow you to travel with many of the comforts of home while remaining more environmentally friendly than traveling via car or plane and staying in a hotel or motel. Many RVs are now considered green vehicles.
What Makes An RV Green
Many RV manufacturers have become more efficient with managing the space within the RV, enabling them to make a smaller vehicle with the same amenities. Lighter materials are used in construction, which helps to increase fuel efficiency. Designs have become more aerodynamic, which helps with wind resistance. Many of the materials used in the construction of the vehicles are now eco-friendly materials. Manufacturers increasingly use materials like renewable wood, energy-efficient LED lighting, and environmentally friendly sealants. Manufacturers are also using more environmentally friendly construction methods when building new RVs.
Which Brands are the Most Environmentally Friendly
According to TRA Certification, Inc., Airstream and Coachmen are two of the most environmentally friendly RV brands available today. After meeting the certification criteria of TRA, both Airstream and Coachmen have been certified green. The brands were tested for indoor air quality, resource, energy, and water efficiency. Before the RVs are tested, TRA evaluates the practices and procedures of the manufacturing facility. Both Airstream and Coachmen use recyclable materials in the manufacture of their products. Both companies strive to build products that are durable, which helps to keep the RV on the road rather than in the trash.
