Toxic Flame Retardants!

After doing a segment with Rollin on TV last week where I mentioned the soft goods in an RV (carpet, upholstery, drapes, bedding) and how they may contain fire retardants, I wanted to look into flame retardants and RV components.  I did some research and discovered that the typical mattress brands can be vague with the chemicals used in their production and flame retardant application.  However, there are non-toxic options available if you're concerned with indoor air quality and chemical sensitivities.  Also, there is a local RV component supplier, Lippert, that offers the Evergreen Performance Core mattress.  This is a low VOC, chemical free option (https://www.lci1.com/ever-green-performance-core) but can only be purchased by an RV manfacturer.

Certified Green RV checklist changes!

We are continuously improving our Certified Green checklist for RVs and want to know what you think about a few additions we'd like to make. . .

1. RVs are getting smarter and the use of smart technology can make RVing smarter and safer, therefore GREENER!

2. The best RVs are made in the U.S.A. and we all know that. But a lot of components are made in other countries (specifically China). I'd like to award points for components that are made in the U.S.A.

3. We should award points for lightweight RVs that can be towed by a crossover or small SUV.
