Hospital Help - Owasco RV

This is just a quick shout out to Owasco RV in Ontario. They are a local Jayco Dealer who we bought our previous C Class from.

Just this week, they offered 70 RVís to local hospitals to house Doctors and Nurses who are unable to get home between their long shifts! Amazing to see our local dealer stepping up and helping the community with such a valuable resource.

That's truly public service in a time of crisis. I hope lots of people read about this and pay the dealership back through increased sales once this crisis is over.

That is cool and such a great gesture, but where are they going to park the RV's? Are there hookups at the hospitals? Local campgrounds nearby? Who is going to clean and schedule the units?

I ran a 70 unit campground (actually a school parking lot) for professionals just after a hurricane disaster All RV's were provided by the federal government when housing was in extremely short supply. Drinking water and MRE's were trucked in, and waste was pumped out in trucks daily, When I accepted the assignment I figured it would be a piece of cake being everyone would be doctors, engineers, police, technicians etc. Boy was I wrong! My 5 year old granddaughter had better housekeeping skills than some of the professionals! I even had one guy who ripped out a partition wall to make "his" living room bigger!

Anyway that dealer should receive a pat on the back, but there are logistics involved that need to be handled.

That is a great gesture by the dealer, however I hope those units are thoroughly cleaned afterwords and any potential buyer is made aware of the prior use.
