All around the country, RV manufacturers are shifting gears to aid healthcare workers, other key hospital staff, and all those who are involved in the fight against the escalating coronavirus pandemic.
Jayco of South Bend, Ind., donated two toy haulers mobile to COVID-19 clinics in Mishawaka. The South Bend Clinic has received two Seismic 4125 toy haulers from Jayco to serve as additional space for pediatric immunizations outside of the clinic with the goal of keeping kids safe during the pandemic. Toy haulers provide the space needed, as well as the ability to ventilate the unit easily by opening up the unit using the rear ramp door.
The South Bend Clinic has the units set up and ready to receive patients. “This really is a game-changer for us,” said South Bend Clinic CEO Kelly Macken-Marble. “The donation of these two units will help keep our teams and patients as safe as possible.” Jayco also donated one unit to the Middlebury Fire Department to use as a quarantine space should one of their firefighters become infected.
This is just one of the examples of RV manufacturers helping in the fight against coronavirus. RV companies are filling the void created by overcrowded hospitals and the scarcity of essential medical equipment. Some manufacturers are offering to donate RVs or to sell them below cost. Still others are helping by refocusing their manufacturing to ramp up the production of masks, shields, and Tyvek suits, while others are providing financial help to employees who have personal and financial difficulties as the result of the virus.
