With costs of supplies and manufacturing going up, RV manufacturers have been using ways to recycle and re-use parts on newer models. Old frames and bodies from discarded and broken down RVs are now being recycled and reused as doors. Manufacturers are now also using lighter composites, those similar in golf balls, experimenting designs and trying new techniques to make RVs more green. The RVs now are getting 15 mpg instead of the usual 8-10 mpg.

RVs are designed to provide years of fun and enjoyment, but they will never live as long as their potential if you do not keep up with the maintenance they need on a regular basis. RV tires usually have a life of 4-5 years if their tread is good and you keep adequate tire pressure. It is important to keep all battery connections clean and erosion free. There should be a maintenance schedule for your RV's engine in your owner manual. This schedule was laid out by professionals so it is important to follow it in a timely manner. Many seasoned RVers recommend you set aside a fund of around $5,000 before taking to the road just to cover any unexpected maintenance or problems that may occur.
