Vacationing in an RV Because It’s Greener?
Are you planning on vacationing with at least one other person the next time you go? Is your destination a driveable one?
If so, you may want to consider the option of travelling in an RV, like one of these from Las Vegas RV rental.
They Said What??
You may be saying to yourself at this point “what, is the author crazy?” Doesn’t he know that RVs use tons of gas?” The fact is, that for the typical family, vacationing in an RV can represent a significant lessening of the carbon footprint compared to driving in a smaller vehicle and staying at hotels or flying.
Not Your Grandfather’s RV:
Modern RVs are a far cry from the old gas-guzzling clunker models you may still have in your mind. It’s definitely a different world out there, and you should explore some of the options on offer these days. Here are some areas in which modern RVs have improved environmentally over the years:
-More modern designs with better aerodynamics, allowing for better fuel mileage.
-Better construction using tougher but also lighter materials, also allowing for better fuel mileage.
-Better floor plans allowing to get more functionality out of a smaller space. This means that a smaller RV than you thought may be sufficient, and makes the bigger models positiviely luxurious in comparison.
-Green manufacturing, and also the inclusion of things like energy-saving lightbulbs, recycled materials, and green fabrics.
For road trips, RVs are hands-down the most convenient way to travel. Taking your stuff in and out of hotel rooms and checking in multiple times is a huge waste of time, not to mention you are so much more secure in an RV, starting with the fact that your vehicle is guarded by the fact that you are sleeping right there.
RVs were of course built to take advantage of camp sites, and multiple people travelling in an RV can be set up for camping really quickly with a minimum of fuss, giving the best of both worlds.
RVs in general remove the restrictions of location and price and schedule and many other things hotels passively impose on you. So RVs as you can see are an option that bears much further consideration at the time of planning your next trip. Just be sure to find and reserve an RV site ahead of time.
