As “green” technology becomes mainstream, RV industry experts report a growing number of consumers showing interest in RVs that are smaller, lighter and more fuel efficient. For those consumers who don’t have the extra cash to shell-out for a new, eco-friendly coach, ShadePro Inc. will be unveiling two new products that will make “going green” while on the road a bit more user-friendly and affordable at the July 2009 Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) International Convention in Bowling Green, Ohio, according to a news release.
The convention, July 20-23, will serve as a platform for ShadePro not only to present its new products to thousands in attendance, but also enable the RV awning and shade company to promote the environmental and money saving benefits of becoming an energy efficient RVer. ShadePro will have six service teams at the convention offering installations and rally pricing to all attendees.
“What many RV owners don’t realize is that there are plenty of inexpensive ways to go green,” said Steve Smoot, ShadePro president. “One simple item all RVers can do to improve their energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint is to install shade products on their RV. This not only helps limit air conditioning use during the hot summer months, but also reduces the fuel consumption by running the generator.”
The Vista Shade is an inside mounted windshield cover for Class A motorhomes that blocks approximately 94% of the sun’s hot rays and saves energy in three do-it-yourself steps. Since the Vista Shade is a DIY product, the owner has the ability cut and create the shape of the shade they need and apply a small adhesive track to the glass. Once the track is installed, the Vista Shade simply slides in.
ShadePro is also re-introducing its line of awning shades with new features at the convention. The RV awning shade drop is now available in 6-, 7- and 8-foot heights to accommodate tall motorhomes or customers that prefer longer shades to block out the wind, sun and other elements.
By keeping the sun’s rays out and the inside of the coach cool, RV owners can afford to be eco-friendly without breaking the bank.
