To keep our fleet of campervans fresh, we occasionally sell and replace one or two campervans at the end of each season. This year it’s a bit different.
Shore Campers is all about getting out and exploring the great outdoors, helping our customers get closer to nature. We want future generations to be able to enjoy this too, able to see and experience the beauty the world has to offer. We all need to be accountable in lowering our environmental impact and we’ve been looking at ways we can do things as carbon neutral and sustainably as possible.
This year we’ve decided to take a new approach. We’re in the process of selling all four of our Nissan Elgrand campervans and replacing them. As you may know, we source second-hand vehicles that are in great condition and have low mileage, and then get them converted to campervans. This year for the conversions we will be partnering with Love Campers to carry out the conversions, in order to make the campervans as environmentally positive as possible.
The vans will feature bright and warm natural woods and upholstery for a modern, light and airy feel, the perfect base for your campervan adventure. The wooden interiors will be all FSC-certified from sustainable sources. All other materials for the builds, such as the upholstery and flooring all come from companies with good eco credentials. We’re excited to have our beautiful campers whilst at the same time reducing our carbon footprint and providing low-carbon, more environmentally friendly campervans.
In using quality second-hand vehicles, we are helping to reduce the vehicle’s environmental build impact, extending its life-span. The act of renting the vans, the sharing economy, is in itself helping the environment, as is saving on the travel carbon footprint from travelling abroad, taking aeroplanes etc. There are more and more “green” campsites available to stay at too so you can really get closer to nature for a low impact adventure!
