Airstream’s Class B motorhomes have been Certified Green by TRA Certification.
The motorhomes will be labeled with TRA’s green label and have earned the Gold level of certification.
“The Airstream ‘Silver Bullet’ has been green certified since 2010, so it is exciting to have the motorhomes involved as well,”said Mandy Leazenby of TRA Certification.
With regards to Resource Efficiency, the Class B plant recycles or reuses more than 50 percent of manufacturing waste. It utilizes multiple jig & CNC systems to reduce waste and maximize material usage.
Several materials are cut to size by the supplier and several materials are also shipped using reusable shipping containers. Most of the wood used during construction is Sustainable Forestry Initiative certified.
In the category of Energy Efficiency, Airstream’s units are sample tested in a rain booth to ensure a durable product. The RVs include more than 90 percent interior and exterior LED lighting. Both the furnace and air conditioner are ductless, reducing wasted energy. Airstream solar panels are standard equipment.
These units are also Water Efficient by containing low-flow kitchen and bath faucets, showerhead and toilet. Plus, the water used for rain booth testing and water line testing is also recycled.
The Class B’s incorporate very little carpeting, which makes for easy clean-up and healthier indoor air quality. They also use low VOC interior sealants and hard flooring. The formaldehyde-free insulation is also beneficial to the indoor environment.
To top it off, the units are cleaned with low-VOC products.
