It’s always nice to see RVers and the RV industry giving back. Volunteers for Habitat For Humanity’s RV Care-A-Vanner program travel the U.S. and Canada in their motorhomes, fifth wheels, and trailers to help build affordable housing for families in need.
Anyone can become an RV Care-A-Vanner, no experience is needed. They can teach you on-site and have a range of projects to work on, like framing, roofing, and interior renovations.
They also need help in the office and around the site to help clean up and do small odds and ends. It’s ideal for retired RVers, RVing families, or anybody with a rig who wants to help others in local communities.
The non-profit builds take a team of 8-20 volunteers and about two weeks to complete. The workdays usually entail 6-7 hours of building with breaks in the morning, lunch, and afternoon. Some builds also have lunch provided.
Each local Habitat office provides low-cost RV parking, instruction, supervision, power tools, building materials, and ladders. They also offer electric hookups, access to water and a nearby dump station.
