There are few things more liberating in life than the purchase of a motorhome or caravan.
A car is one thing – you can travel wherever you want, whenever you feel like it – but with a motorhome or caravan, you have the added luxuries of cooking, sleeping, showering – and even watching TV – without the expense of a hotel. With a motorhome, you can stay at camp sites, music festivals, or you could even go on a road trip if you’re feeling particularly adventurous.
Wherever you decide to travel, it’s important to consider your energy use – both for your wallet’s sake and the planet’s. Fortunately, whether you’re an old-school camper with a classic VW van or you own a modern-style campervan, LED lights are now available for your vehicle.
LED bulbs last up to 50,000 hours and use as little as 3W compared to halogen lights, which average at 50W. So not only will you be self-sufficient on your travels, you’ll be energy-efficient too!
As LED light bulbs use a fraction of the energy of traditional bulbs, the drain on the vehicle battery will be far less – so, as well as saving you money on replacement bulbs, you won’t be dependent on finding a camping pitch with a power link-up. And of course you’ll have peace of mind knowing you won’t get stranded with a flat battery while on holiday. And let’s face it, nothing would ruin your sense of freedom and self-reliance more than having to call out those dreaded breakdown assistance people!
