Meyer Distributing Inc, Jasper, Ind., will now sell WiFi Ranger’s line of products to dealers.

“We are excited about the opportunities that this partnership will bring to our customer base,” Meyer RV/Towing Sales Manager Jason Lents says. “With so many families wanting to stay connected while camping, the WiFI Ranger helps make that happen by boosting the existing and often weak WiFi signal up to one mile. We are the only wholesale distributor offering the Sky4 model to the RV market and have already sold out of initial stock, but we are happy to say that our new shipment has arrived and they are already moving out the door.”

“We have started seeing much larger interest in the mobile technology segment, so we looked into companies who provided this type of product and determined that WiFi Ranger was a great fit for our customers,” RV/Towing Purchasing Manager Johnny Hayes says. “With a strong interest in security for the end user, WiFi Ranger stood above the others with several layers of security. The Sky4 firewall helps to ensure the RVers are safe when using the free internet at these locations, that could otherwise be unsafe.”
