With the invention and constant innovations of the motorhomes or recreational vehicles, there will in one way or another, continue to exist a threat to our environment. However, if only the suppliers, propagators and users of RVs will promote use of these motorhomes while making sure they are able to help protect the environment from any serious threats, then it would be great.
Adventurous People Cutting On Costs, Shifting To RV Use
Due to the economic recession, people have started downsizing their lifestyle, cutting on utility costs, cutting on mortgage rates, and other unnecessary expenses. This holds very true not only to residents of the United States but also to citizens of other countries throughout the world. Some go to the extent of abandoning and selling their homes and instead take refuge in the shelter that their motorhome can give.
Maintaining An RV Vs. Maintaining A Home
Maintaining a recreational vehicle or mobile home is much less costly than having to pay for the house mortgages and all. However, the question that must always be asked is « Are your recreational vehicles green? » Do you take social responsibility for the motorhome you drive? Can you travel and journey to places without damaging, if not immediately destroying our planet?
Going Green With RVs
These questions prompted some people to make their recreational vehicle their home sweet home. But the catch to it is, they use vegetable oil or biodiesel to fuel the RV. The RVs will require you about one gallon of oil for every eight miles you wish to travel. This will truly give you a taste of low-cost living which is exactly what most of us need at the present times. And in terms of remodeling your RV, you should always use non-toxic paints, bamboo flooring as well as the waste and grease fueling method. As for installing your water system, make sure you find a reliable installer who will do it efficiently. It will not be god to be traveling and your water connections faltering. But then again, water is no problem as you can install a hot water system of about six gallons.
So you will not experience any problem when taking baths for as long as you know until when you should stay in the bathroom.
Budget-Friendly Recreational Vehicles
What is more, due to the limited space in the recreational vehicles or motorhomes, you will not need to buy so many things you do not really need. Doing so would only clog and just clutter your mobile home.
And amid the growing interest of people to settle their family in a motorhome; taking up residence on a recreational vehicle, the questions of economic and environmental impact will always be there. And while we say making these recreational vehicles our abodes or dwellings will put a halt to our loads of expenses, there is still the issue of environment to tackle.
The Final Questions
Are these motorhomes really environmental friendly? What do RV users need to consider in order to make sure that though they are able to fulfill their dream of having recreational vehicles, they still hold the social responsibility to help protect the earth.
