“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” - Miriam Beard
Who among us hasn't wished, just for a second, that we could take to the open road unencumbered by the things, people, and responsibilities of our everyday lives? Travel refreshes the soul, enlightens the mind, and teaches us to appreciate the comforts that we so often take for granted.
The only problem is that most forms of transportation (think: planes, trains, and automobiles) demand large amounts of dirty fossil fuels, and most travel destinations (think: hotels, resorts, and theme parks) usually leave behind a mountain of waste in their wake.
The answer? Take your sustainability on the road.
If you're willing to venture off the grid and down the road less traveled, you'll the FreeSpace tag-along camper designed by Wood Wind Caravans. The first thing that strikes you about the FreeSpace is the plastic-free, natural wood construction and sleek shape. You can leave the monster truck at home, because the FreeSpace and its 5' x 8' trailer can be towed easily behind the family caravan, small truck and even some hybrids.
But the compact size and retro-inspired paneling aren't even the best parts. The trailer comes fitted with three powerful solar panels, fresh and gray water holding tanks, a 26- quart ice chest, trash recycling bin,drawer storage for utensils & cookstove, and optional Teragren Bamboo cabinets and worksurfaces.
All you have to do is find a little spot of wilderness, lift the shell, and in less than 5 minutes the sporty camper will transform into an open, airy, and well-appointed 5'-0" x 14'-0" living space with 8' of headroom.
