The last weekend of August was the busiest Woody RV Rentals has ever been in its 10 years of business, according to owner Julie Woody. The Hutto RV rental company was peppered with requests from around the state to rent RVs and campers in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
At the time, Woody said her business has met every request for her fleet of 85 RV-related vehicles, according to a story by Community Impact.com.
Rented RVs have gone to businesses bringing supplies to areas affected by the storm, contractors working to rebuild or families who have been displaced because of Hurricane Harvey’s damage.
Woody RV is no stranger to storm requests. Woody said in 2016 the company received large orders from businesses in Louisiana who were affected by similar flooding.
