Solar-Powered Eco Camper Lets You Take Sustainable Roadtrips


Camping season is coming to an end, but you might want to start thinking about saving up cash for the $129,000 Verdier Solar-Powered Camper. The RV is based on the classic VW camper style, and contains a 4 cylinder hybrid engine, a 170 watt solar system, and a GPS system to orient the solar panels. If you’re stuck on a cloudy stretch of road, the RV can also use regular gasoline.

And just because the camper is environmentally-friendly doesn’t mean it lacks in luxury— the eco-RV comes with an on-board computer, a projector, 6 speaker surround sound, and a roll-down screen. It also comes with built-in trash containers, composting and recycling, and a refrigerator/freezer.

The RV isn’t for sale just yet, but Verdier is taking reservations for its summer 2009 release.
