If you’re interested in anything eco-friendly, you need to spend some time checking out this interesting article written by Alexander Robertson for the Mail Online about an eco-friendly camper that’s made from recycled materials, has a wood burner and its own off-the-grid water and electricity.

The Austrian company, Wohnwagon, builds campers for people who want to be self-sufficient. These amazing campers are made from both recycled materials and natural materials, like larch wood and clay. They are even insulated with sheep’s wool and the wood is treated with natural oils.

The eco-friendly nature of these campers goes ever further: they provide owners with self-sufficiency. Each camper has solar panels on its roof to generate electricity and has off-the-grid water and waste systems. The interiors keep to the natural theme, using open-plan design and light colors for the decor. They do come with a hefty price tag, though: they sell for up to $104,500 each!

Chilly weekends won’t be a concern in the caravan, where insulation is provided by triple-glazed windows and an elaborate solar water heater, or a wood-burning stove. Right: Rainwater is collected and recycled for drinking water, household uses, or as irrigation water for the green roof

A Project Manager for Wohnwagon, Christop Raz says:

“Reduction isn’t equal to sacrifice – ‘Reduce to the Max’ is our motto”.

“That’s it, that’s all people need. That’s why we created Wohnwagon.”
