Update From Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

It's 11:00 on Saturday night. I'm writing this newsletter. Bob's fixing some tools that we picked up earlier today at a garage sale, and that we will resell. I guess that means we're still working, because both of these activities bring us income.

But.... What do I like to do in my free time? Well...I write. I can spend hours writing and answering questions and enjoy every minute of it. Helping our readers is extremely satisfying and relaxing for me. And, Bob? He fixes. He gets his thrills from taking something that's broken and making it work as good as or better than new.

When you don't know for sure if you are working or playing, you've probably found a job that is a good fit for you. Thankfully, we have.

Wherever you are in your work and travels, we wish you joy and prosperity,

I own Schulenburg RV Park and my daughter, Holly, helps me run it. We're at Schulenburg, TX, which is along side I-10. It is 105 miles east of San Antonio, 95 miles west of Houston, 65 miles south of Austin, and 60 miles north of Victoria.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Getting a SD Driver License

~~ Ron asks: I just read your editorial about using S. Dakota as your domicile; sounds very attractive. I have one question.

Did you have to go take a physical driving test to change your driver's license, or were you able to do that through the mail?

~~ I answered in part: To get a South Dakota Driver License you need to go there in person. If you present them with a valid driver's license from another state and one other ID, you do not need to take either a written knowledge test or a driving skills test. You would need to take a vision test.

~~ Read the longer version of my answer on the website.

Working RVer Tip

Don't Study Yourself to Broke

Working in a campground is not rocket science. Find a campground you like and ask for a job. Tell the manager what you can do, your skills and abilities. Ask if he needs your services. You can spend weeks, months, years even, reading and studying about how to be a working RVer -- and doing so can be fun! But, all that studying is probably more apt to lead you to broke than it is to a job. If rocket science is your profession -- and yes, there are short-term rocket science jobs for RVers -- contact companies (including specialized temp staffing services) that hire rocket scientists. You can spend endless time researching the possibilities for the perfect job, but you may be best to get an okay job to support yourself in the meantime.

Working RVers Share Their Stories

The Allens: Camp Workers

We are the Allens, camp workers Eddie and Mel, from Garden City, KS. This is our first full year as full time RVers and workampers. We are having a great time and highly recommend it to others. We are so glad we decided to retire and not wait another three years.

Last summer, we worked at Newport, TN, at the KOA. The KOA has great owners, Bert and Gini Bockoven, and we had a great time.

This winter, we have worked at Schulenburg RV Park, in Schulenburg, TX.

We are headed to Dubois, WY, to work as camp host for Wind River KOA until the last of September. We are so looking forward to working long-term in the area and seeing things we just flew by 10-11 years ago.

Read more about the Allens on their worker profile page.

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....
