Out on the Limb

Our Favorite

Monday, May 02, 2005

After spending yesterday at the Puyallup Fairgrounds touring through countless RV's, we kept coming back to the 31.5 foot Mountaineer.


The Mountaineer seems to meet all of our requirements. It has two slide units, one for the bedroom and one for the living room. The bunkhouse unit is easily convertible into a computer room; and there is adequate cabinet space for my printing supplies.

I'm guessing that a couple of years after we purchase our RV, the manufacturers will have many more models that have computer cabinetry built in. Right now, they are few and far between.

I'm looking for green alternatives to the standard linoleum/carpet mix for the flooring. Treehugger reminds us of the unfriendly qualities of traditional carpets:
First, almost all carpet is made from petroleum byproducts and synthetics such as polypropylene, nylon and acrylic. In addition, it’s usually treated with stain or soil repellents. And don’t even get us started on the backing (ugh!), which could be made from vinyl or synthetic latex. Padding can also contain PVC, urethane, and other suspect materials. Add to that the antistatic sprays, artificial dyes, antimicrobial treatments, and finishes and it’s enough to leave you shivering. But before you bag the idea, try checking out your options…
Gotta go...I have some reading to do!

Ya...green alternatives is a must nowdays since the pollution cause by fuel-type vehicles is great and i guess is already in the process of making our world to "GREEN HOUSE EFFECT". Automobile manufacturer should start to implement greenier technology for counter-attack the effect.

p/s: thx for blog-roll me...will blogroll u too :)

Wow! I didn't know that carpets have such things. That means it's really bad to sit or lie down on them. Thanks for the info.

Ah! your future home looks very cosy and inviting, Deb :).

yesssszzzz, Spyder....??
You have questions, I presume?
:)

My kids have plenty of questions. They are still questioning my sanity, but I think they are coming 'round. Maybe it's time to do another pro/con list.

I'm off to my cell now. Later,
deb
