Coachmen RV’s Adrenaline and Forest River’s Work and Play toy haulers have received the Gold level of green certification from TRA Certification. According to a press release, the companies will begin designating the RVs as green certified with TRA’s green label.
With regards to resource efficiency, the Adrenaline and Work and Play facility recycles or reuses 75% of manufacturing waste. They utilize multiple jig systems to reduce waste and maximize material usage. They also use multiple components that are shipped on reusable containers. Several materials are cut to size by the supplier and the units incorporate materials with recycled content. Also, the RVs include nitrogen-filled tires which improve fuel economy.
In the category of energy efficiency, the toy haulers utilize LED lighting throughout and units are tested in a rain booth to ensure a durable product
The toy haulers are also water efficient by containing low-flow kitchen faucets, showerhead and toilet. The amount of water saved from these low flow fixtures greatly impacts water conservation. Plus, the water used for rain booth testing is also recycled.
The toy haulers include very little carpeting which makes for easy clean-up and healthier indoor air quality. They also use low VOC cleaners during the final finish process. Ductwork is located above the floor so dirt, dust and other contaminants aren’t being re-introduced into the air.
The Adrenaline has Azdel interior walls which are composite and non-off-gassing. Wall space is a large surface area which has a large and positive impact on indoor air. Low-VOC flooring and formaldehyde-free insulation are also beneficial to the indoor environment.
