New Favorite Work Camper Campground Nominee

Mount Desert Island Campground

Mount Desert Island Campground, Maine, is near Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The Craigheads, owners for years, are wonderful to work for.

The campground is on the Sound and is very quiet. It has many repeat customers of many years.

We were paid for all hours worked. That was approximately thirty each person. It was mostly cleaning sites and bathrooms.

Read more about this on the website.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Ghost Towns and the Old West

~~ William B. asks: Who do I contact to submit photographs and stories of the old West, (towns and history) which I have visited throughout the United States in the past five years in my RV?

~~ I answered in part: Here are 15 suggestions for selling your ghost town and old west photos and stories, as well as a few other ideas for making money with them:

1. Magazines about ghost towns and the old west. Since you are interested in the topic, you probably are already familiar with them.

2. Visitor and convention bureaus in states with ghost towns.

3. Create a website business with your photos and stories. This would be perfect for using SBI!'s web business model of Content-Traffic-Presell-Monitize. For more on this, click here.

4. Have your photographs made into post cards, calendars, posters, or prints and sell them online, at craft shows, at historical shows.

5. Get them printed as posters, calendars, post cards, greeting cards, or prints and wholesale them to gift shops.

Working RVer Tip

Upgrade Your Job Qualifications

Get additional training or certification that improves your job qualifications. It might be an adult education class or a community college course. Many of these can be completed in just a few sessions. Or, attend a workshop or convention that offers certification or continuing education credits. You can also find on-line courses so that you don't need to interrupt your travel schedule.

Live as the star of your own life, not as an extra in someone else's. ~ Kathy Gates

Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike. ~ Duke Ellington

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....
