What Makes Camping Trailers Eco Friendly?
Find an inexpensive and sustainable way to travel across the country can seem close to impossible with the rising gas prices, airplane tickets, accommodation costs, etc. However, when you have a home on wheels, the expenses can be considerably reduced. Your dream of traveling can become one of reality by purchasing an economic camper.
There are a few characteristics to keep in mind when looking to purchase eco friendly camping trailers. First, you want to take into consideration the fuel. How many miles per gallon does it get? Are there any campers that use alternative sources of energy for fuel (solar energy, chargeable battery, etc.)?
Second, you want a mobile home that has been made from sustainable materials. Is the flooring reclaimed or made from bamboo? Does it include an efficient washer/dryer set? What is the cabinetry made from? But you can still purchase ones made from aluminum, steel or wood as long as you plan on recycling it at the end of its lifespan.
Third, don't forget that you can add your own earth friendly amenities. If you have the option to customize or you can renovate an older model, choose efficient appliances and organic fabrics for the bedding and upholstery. Also, consider using a composting toilet on your travels.
