Driving an RV is an absolutely liberating experience. From family vacations to snowbirds visiting their favorite RV parks and campgrounds. But more than ever, campers are concerned about the environment. They want to decrease their footprint without giving up the open road.
This detailed guide will show you how to make your RV’s green and have a great camping trip without harming the environment.
Use Solar Panels
Solar panels are a great way to power your RV. Fixed panels live along the sides and roof of your RV Camper. They absorb the sun all day, whether you’re driving or parked, then feed that power to the RV. There are many brands to choose from to make finding panels that fit your budget a breeze.
Trade-In Your RV
Older RV’s have poor fuel efficiency and inefficient heating and cooling units. As of 2018, every new RV being produced is 73 percent cheaper to fuel and cost manage over vehicles produced just 10 years ago. With a new model RV, you’ll also have drastically lower repair and maintenance costs.
Other Ways To Go Green
There are many ways you can improve your green footprint on a camping and RV trip. Your campsite is your home. If you’re next to a Florida Spring, make sure your trash doesn’t blow into the river. Make sure your waste products find the right bins. Don’t pour any harmful solutions into the soil. Even products that claim to be biodegradable can cause problems, like attracting curious local wildlife that will chew on and eat trash that smells like food.
When in doubt, remember the golden rule: Leave it better than you found it, don’t destroy, disrupt, or remove natural items from your campsite and you’ll be well on your way to helping keep our planet and our campsites beautiful!
