Cece Reinhardt and Brenda Daugherty decided to renovate a 2003 Airstream Safari with eco-friendly materials and convert their used diesel truck to a veggie oil machine to get “On the Green Road” in style. They enlisted sponsors and finished the conversion and renovation. They also embarked on a mission to get rid of everything that they don’t need or use, and will show people how they’re living off the grid.
The truck is powered by waste oil, while the Airstream is powered by solar panels. The 25-foot Airstream also has rain water collection and a composting toilet.
In terms of materials, the 200 square-foot renovation has American Clay walls and ceiling, a 500-w solar system from Applied Solar Energy, whole-house filtration by Blue Gold for Life, an eco-friendly mattress from Keetsa, Vida cork planks, natural linoleum flooring, PaperStone countertops, Hardwoods Inc. veneer cabinets from Eco Craft Cabinetry, LEDs from Elemental LED, a Lumicor recycled resin shower door, a Kirei board office desk, and a waterless Nature’s Head composting toilet.
