David Sherrer, executive director of Qchair’s Traveler, will be at the South Bend/Elkhart KOA in Granger, Ind., Wednesday (April 29) as he embarks on a 4-year solo RV trip to advance travel accessibility for people with disabilities.
According to a company release, Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI) is sponsoring the trip by providing several upgrade RV accessories and installation free of charge. Furrion, which like LCI is based in Elkhart, Ind., also donated products.
“I want to help others with mobility impairments find increased access and opportunity to enjoy recreational activities and travel in general,” explained Sherrer. “The RV offers access to places I couldn’t stay before because there were no accommodations of any kind nearby. As a paraplegic, there are many things I have to consider when I travel. Being able to stop and rest when I need to is huge! So is knowing I will always have a place to sleep no matter where I go.”
“We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to help David in his mission to show that RV travel can be an excellent way for people with disabilities to enjoy outdoor adventures and even a fulltime mobile lifestyle,” said LCI VP of Marketing & Public Relations Jarod Lippert. “Our RV accessories enhance the RV experience by making set up, towing and even relaxation significantly easier. We offer automatic leveling, power stabilization, suspension and towing enhancement, premium mattresses, furniture and more.”
