Update From Your RVers Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

We have a diabetic cat. He gets insulin twice a day. Traveling by RV, this isn't a problem. His insulin is in the fridge, and his syringes and prescription cat chow are close at hand. Earlier this month, when we traveled without the RV for a few days, we really missed this convenience. Enabling care for special needs pets isn't usually listed as one of the big benefits of working while RVing. But, the RV sure simplifies things for us.

Working RVer Tip

Courteously Decline a Job Offer

If you don't plan to accept a job that's been offered to you, decline it politely. A quick email, postcard, or voicemail message to the employer letting them know you aren't accepting the offer means a lot.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Making Money On The Road?

~~ Kathy asks: My partner and I travel from May to October in our 5th wheel and I have racked my brain trying to think up ways to make some extra cash on the road. We are not too interested in being campground hosts. Any books or ideas on what other RV'ers do to earn money on the road?

~~ I answered in part: Here are four some quick suggestions for making money on the road...

• Subscribe to our RVers Workers On Wheels Newsletter, the Work-For-RVers-And-Campers.com news and updates ezine. It is free. (This newsletter.)

• Go to RVworkers.org and take time to read through the free e-book.

~ Free E-book

• Go to RVworkers.biz and take time to read at least a half dozen or so of the worker's case studies and other examples you'll find on the site.

Words of Wisdom from Workers

Work Campers Help the Local Economy

~~ Russ writes: Employers don't realize how much a good work camper can help them and the local economy. We personally have hundreds of RV'ing friends that go to places we recommend and spend money. Don't ever think that one disgruntled employee, prospective employee, or customer doesn’t matter, because they do. Word of mouth advertising can be super great or super damaging.

Working RVer Tip

Campground Owners Network, Too

You know the grapevine, that unofficial workcamping network where you sit around the campfire -- or your computer -- and chat about your past, present, and future workcamper jobs. Keep in mind that campground owners have a similar network.

Positive RVing Attitudes

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man. ~ George Bernard Shaw

To succeed, develop habits of success. ~ Unknown

We started this site after corresponding with thousands of RVers, sharing what we’ve learned from our personal experience as full-time RVers, as well as what we've gleaned from employers and managers who hire and work with work campers and other RV workers.

We do hope we've been instrumental in helping you find the right work situation for your RV lifestyle.

We believe there are many advantages to having an RV home based business that we can take on the road with us. We've found a Watkins Summit Group business works for us.

We are also thankful for SBI!, the "do-all-the-techy-stuff-for-you" e-business building platform that made creating this RV resource site possible.

If you have questions, we're always happy to help. Simply submit them here....
