If you love the green initiative and also have a passion for travel and adventure then this one is for you. If you are fond of caravans and RVs then there is a way to make the setup of your caravan more sustainable and biologically sufficient and green-friendly. Listed below are some of the ways and details on how to make your caravan more sustainable in all your travels and adventures.
Of course, you have solar panels. Solar panels and solar-powered tools have made a gigantic leap towards being used commercially until it has become a common tool for everyday use by almost everybody. Thus, solar panels can now be retrofitted into caravans and RV for it to become sustainable.
Instead of consuming that many resources, with solar power on caravan roofs, one can save energy resources by using clean and sustainably sourced solar power to charge phones, lights, and other gadgets being used during the trip. It also offers alternative energy especially when the caravan has troubles along the way.
You can add more kitchen details to your caravan rather than putting that much amount of space into the sleeping or living room quarters of the van. Let’s say for example if you save more space for kitchen details, then you can actually live in the caravan for longer periods of time, being able to sustain yourself with food that you cook or hunt on your own, or simply you can store more foods and supplies if you have a refrigerator or a pantry inside the caravan. Adding more kitchen details and accessories would also mean that you have to reinforce the caravan flooring so that it can handle the added weight.
One of the very genius ways in which you can make your caravan very sustainable is to add bigger storage for rainwater. One of the basic needs for one to survive long periods of time traveling or camping in the wilds is water, if you have water, you can sustain yourself not only through drinking but also with other needs such as washing and bathing.
If you have bigger storage for water, then you can collect rainwater whenever there is an opportunity, this way you will not have to restore frequently as you will have enough water being stored in your caravan, but of course, with this idea, you’d have to adjust to the space and that you’d have to sacrifice other spaces for such a bigger bulk such as water storage.
Sustainability has always been ideal for many of the industry and people today, even houses, lifestyles, and even restaurants have aimed for such, and thus it would not be a surprise if even hobbyists such as those who love caravans also aim for such an ideal state. Having a green and sustainable caravan might seem absurd for many, but looking into it, it actually helps a lot even in little ways.
