Add to this fact the large pollution footprint of air travel, and RV owners have a "greener than thou" story to tell.
According to the Recreational Vehicles Association, "The study, prepared for Recreation Vehicle Industry Association by PKF Consulting USA, a member of an international travel and tourism consulting group, found that RV travel is 23-to-59 percent less expensive than other types of vacations, for a family of four that owns an RV. For an "empty-nester" couple traveling by RV, savings were 11-to-46 percent."
