Thanks for visiting. RVMatchMaker is closed. There’s a lot that we could tell you about our strengths and achievements that can be utilized in the future.
We developed a scalable matching platform to match high risk individuals with unused RVs to self-isolate and potentially avoid devastating medical bills or death from SARS-CoV-2. We also had an insurance company that could offer affordable insurance which was the Achilles heel of anybody else attempting to do this. Commercial rates with coverage that is inferior to consumer rates at over $1,000 a month is a deal killer for most who are already paying for housing that they are sharing during the pandemic.
We have some uncovered expenses and fundraising has not been a focus at all due to competing priorities. In spite of our tiny budget, our capacity to scale was promising. The only reason the project didn’t launch was because of the founder’s personal circumstance. Without her the project would not have existed at all. Our content and capability will remain, just in case someday we need to try again.
Here’s a few videos to show you what was going on behind the scenes. If you wish to help the founder with expenses, please see the links after the videos.
This is a message from the founder about why she created RVMatchMaker.ORG

You have 2 options to support the project and the founder:

IOBY will receive and disburse funds through our dedicated RVMatchMaker fundraising page on their platform.
- Non-deductible donations for the founder of RVMatchMaker: If you wish to donate to the project founder’s personal account for medical and moving expenses, which are far more significant, you may learn more about that here.
