COVID-19 AND GREEN

We're all about GREEN here at TRA but now is a time where we want you to use as much water and soap as possible!  Hell, use all the paper towel you need!  Just stay safe!

Why Build Green?

Terms like "Green," "sustainable," and "eco-friendly" are more important now than ever.  Transparency is an important factor in consumer purchasing decisions and it increases consumer confidence in a manufacturer.  When a manufacturer lays out their practices and products on the table for review it shows their commitment to making smarter construction and component choices.  Listed below are the industry-leading companies that have opened their doors to being evaluated by our company and have become our partners in making smarter RVs, Park Models, Tiny Homes and Emergency Vehicles!

What are we looking at?

After an evaluation of the RV manufacturing facility, its procedures and practices, the RV is measured against criteria based on national consensus standards. The criteria involve Resource Efficiency, Energy Efficiency, Water Efficiency & Indoor Air Quality. To learn more, click one of the categories below.

This graph represents an RV's final rating after points are tallied in each category.  The minimum points earned for any category is the final overall rating. For example, if an RV scores at the Gold level in 3 categories but scores at a Bronze level in one category, the final rating is Bronze.
