Boy Gets Wish: Keystone Trailer

The three-year-old boy, Luca, is battling Dravat syndrome, a rare and catastrophic form of intractable epilepsy that begins in infancy. Keystone RV discounted the travel trailer, making Luca’s dream of camping “outside” a reality.

“Luca and his wish have captured our hearts and we’re honored to be able to help make his wish come true,”says Jeff Runels, president of Keystone RV. “This Hideout travel trailer will provide a place for Luca to spend time with family and friends and build many memories. We’re excited to have Luca and his family visit our dealer, Walnut Ridge Family RV Sales, and see his face as he received his most heartfelt wish.”

Because of Luca’s condition, it is recommended that he stay out of direct sunlight. A travel trailer will enable Luca and his family to enjoy the outdoors while staying out of the sun.
