As RVers, we’re always looking for ways to save money and live healthier on the road. Less money spent on RV maintenance means more money for all the fun stuff that the RVing life offers, like horseback riding in the Rockies or whale watching in the Pacific. If you’re looking to make a noticeable change to your motorhome’s interior that’ll benefit your wallet and the environment, consider swapping out your traditional

Even if you’re not a math whiz, you can see that LEDs are definitely the winner when it comes to staying power! Yes, they cost more initially, but if you figure that you’re getting 25x the lifespan, it’s easier to justify the initial cost. And since you’re not having to replace them very often, you’re creating less waste of burned out bulbs and less production of new bulbs—Mother Earth thanks you!
LEDs are cool!
In a smaller space like an RV, you’ll appreciate how LEDs burn cooler than a traditional
