According to Sherman Goldenberg of RVBusiness, as businesses and homeowners continue to deal with Hurricane Harvey’s devastation, many of the Texas Gulf Coast’s RV dealers were still adjusting over the Labor Day weekend to life in the wake of the epic storm which made landfall on Aug. 25, and ultimately dumped an estimated 27 trillion gallons of rain over Texas and Louisiana over a period of six days.

To gauge the status of some high-profile Texas dealerships, RVBUSINESS.com contacted a number of businesses on Labor Day (Sept. 5), a holiday on which many retailers ordinarily wouldn’t have been open. However, it seemed as if most every dealership that was able to do so was up and running to conduct regular business and also help companies in need of temporary housing for storm-related workers and an untold number of homeless evacuees in need of recreational vehicles for temporary shelter. People still were able to  purchase RVs however. “Sunday, we delivered 30 units at just the Cleburne location,” said Jarrod McGhee, CEO of Fun Town RV, with nine stores in Texas and Oklahoma.
