RV Builders Help Storm Victims

September 1, 2004
Filed under Trailer News

Indiana’s RV manufacturers have boosted their production rates to meet demand caused by
homes destroyed by Hurricane Charley. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
estimates that 8,900 RV units will be needed by Florida dealers, and the total value may
reach $1 billion. Hurricane Charley destroyed more than 12,000 homes, leaving approximately
19,000 others with major damage. Manufacturers are either converting existing units to suit
FEMA’s needs or creating new, stripped-down lower-priced versions of travel trailers to
quickly house hurricane victims.
