Man starts 4-year solo RV trip to advance accessibility for disabilities

GRANGER, Ind. — People are invited to meet David Sherrer of Qchair’s Traveler between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. April 29, at the South Bend/Elkhart KOA in Granger, Ind., as he embarks on a four-year solo RV trip to advance travel accessibility for people with disabilities.

Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI) is sponsoring the trip by providing several upgrade RV accessories and installation free of charge, the organization announced in a press release. Furrion 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 Qchair’s Executive Director David 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.”

LCI Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations Jarod Lippert and other company representatives will also be on hand April 29 to take questions regarding the sponsorship.

“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 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.”
