How did the business start?

“Late last year, after searching for jobs I took a gamble to spent the rest of my severance package on purchasing a motor home as an investment to rent or sell," owner Sam Asaf wrote to KPRC. “I lost my job in 2019 so I turned to rent out my RV Class A motor home.”

How is RV Rental dealing with current challenges?

“I had one booking last year and one this year, I had several potential bookings and they have all postponed or canceled,” Asaf wrote. “Now I don’t know how I am going to survive the rest of the year as I was counting on the rentals to carry me through the year. I won’t qualify for the stimulus package. I can’t file for unemployment either as I have not worked for over a year."
