POINT PLEASANT BEACH - Many Jersey Shore residents who are rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy are relying on campers and RVs as temporary housing solutions.

Workers at Scott's Motor Coach & RV Center say they've seen a large number of shore homeowners asking about renting or leasing RVs in the months after the storm.

Some organizations have also been raising money to buy or rent campers for displaced families.

Walter Hynes, of Scott's Motor Coach & RV Center, says his company did not rent before, but they're now offering short-term rentals to help out storm victims.

According to Hynes, about 80 percent of his employees were personally affected by the storm, so they can relate to their customers' needs.

Scott's has also sold, leased or donated campers to local governments whose offices were destroyed.
