Numerous people in the RV industry are seeking ways to assist during this global pandemic.
Gigi Stetler, CEO of RV Sales of Broward (County, Florida) and founder of the non-profit RV Adviser Consumer Association (RVACA), will soon begin providing free RVs to healthcare workers and other public service workers on the front line of the coronavirus fight. The units will be used to quarantine or in other cases, a place to avoid risking infection.
Through RVACA’s coronavirus assistance funds, Stetler will be offering the RVs to help protect the people who protect us, she said, so we can beat the virus.
After receiving numerous calls from health care providers and hearing of a paramedic exposed to coronavirus who returned home and exposed his family, Stetler realized RVs could be part of the solution. In the past, Stetler donated RVs for temporary housing in the Bahamas in the aftermath of a hurricane and in California after families lost homes in the wildfires.
Stetler plans to do whatever she can to help in this global pandemic. Health care workers or public servants who would like to apply for a temporary RV can apply here.
RVs will be available for 14-day and 30-day options. The RVs will have a ten-day break between rentals to ensure they can be properly disinfected.
“We have to keep our health care providers safe and healthy,” said Stetler. “If we lose our doctors, nurses and paramedics, we are done. This is a very scary time. If we don’t get this contained and get businesses back open again, we are in trouble. We must all work together to get on the other side of this.”
