It’s no secret that RV enthusiasts love the great outdoors, and in an effort to give back to the natural wonders we love visiting, many RVers have chosen to travel green. And while some green RV additions — like solar panels and new engines — may seem a little out of budget, there are plenty of budget-friendly ways to live a little greener on the road.
A number of major companies have started creating non-toxic, environmentally-friendly cleaning supplies and tank additives to reduce the amount of harm travelers cause when cleaning the interior and exterior of their motorhomes and travel trailers. Choose these products over more harmful ones or use other (more budget-friendly) non-toxic household items like vinegar and baking soda to clean instead.
Although it can be fun for large groups of campers to meet in separate RVs at the campsite, you can save the environment (and tons of money on fuel) by traveling in groups. Many RVs are capable of sleeping seven or more people, and they often house only two. Instead of meeting your friends at the campground, choose an RV and travel together.
Let Nature Help
Running the air conditioning in summer time can begin to feel like second nature, and sometimes we even run it when it’s not needed at all. Try using fans, shades and awnings instead of air conditioning on warm days, and always use those cool summer breezes to your advantage. In colder weather, choosing blankets over heaters can save a lot of unnecessary energy too.
Regulate Your Campfire
Campfires can spread at the drop of a hat, so always stay up-to-date on your campground’s fire rules as well as their daily weather conditions. And remember to keep your campfire small to reduce the amount of pollution that’s sent into the air.
