When you go exploring with your recreational vehicle or travel trailer, you may often wonder how you can make the trip more eco-friendly. There is a “going green” trend sweeping most industries, and the RV industry has not been excluded. This means that you can purchase a new travel trailer or motor home that has been built to green standards, you can transform your used travel trailer or RV so that it acts more eco-friendly, and/or you can treat your traveling experience in a more green friendly way.
Aside: eco-friendly has been defined by Wikipedia as not harmful to the environment.
1. Purchase a new motor home or travel trailer that is green.
If you are in the market for a new travel trailer or recreational vehicle, there are many RV companies that are now building units that have tailored, eco-friendly structures and some in the industry that are solely green travel trailer or RV producers. Do comparisons on the internet, if you are interested in buying a new recreational vehicle or towable unit. There are some RVs that are created out of recycled materials, reduce your carbon foot print, and even those that use bio diesel fuels.
2. Transform you older travel trailer or RV so that it operates in a more eco-friendly fashion.
There are minor adjustments that you can do to create a more environment agreeable recreational vehicle or towable unit. Since most motor homes and RV campers are assumed to be harmful, gas guzzlers, you can be a leader in your community by adapting your unit so that it is less harmful to the environment. Speak to a professional or use your RV online communications resources for guidance on how to transform your used RV, but think about simple solutions, such as carrying a lighter weight or using energy saving tactics while on the road.
3. Act eco-friendly when you are traveling or camping in your new or used motorhome unit.
There are many ways that you and your traveling companions can adapt your lifestyle when on the road so that it is conducive to becoming more green. Some of the easy things to do are to recycle, do less idling in the RV while it is running, shop and cook from area farmers markets, and use LED light bulbs inside the unit. By spending time doing further research, you will be able to make a list of how you can help save the environment.
