Solar-Powered Eco Camper Lets You Take Sustainable Roadtrips
November 17th, 2008 by Ariel Schwartz
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.
