Inventor Develops RV Accessory for Pets

Wed Dec 21, 2016

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - An inventor for InventHelp has developed an RV accessory for pets to make it easier to travel the country with animals.

"I travel the country in my RV and I also bring my pets along with me," says the inventor from Tustin, California, who wasn't named in the press release, according to PR Web. "I wanted them to be able to go outside and smell the fresh air while we were on the road, which led me to develop this convenient pet accessory for RVs."

The inventor created a prototype for the RV Vehicle Play Pen for Pets to provide a safe outdoor area in which pets can play. The accessory ensures that pets get exercise while traveling. It is designed to keep pets occupied, playful and happy. The device is usable with both dogs and cats.

The original design was submitted to the Los Angeles office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 15-LAX-772, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call 412-288-1300 ext. 1368.
