Update From Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

It's brag time. I received a letter this week from Watkins Incorporated's President, Mark Jacobs, congratulating me on our success with Watkins. I received the 4th Place Manager Award for 2008. To say that I am pleased with this accomplishment is a bit of an understatement.

If you'd like to know more about Watkins products or are interested in selling them, I'd be happy to help you.

If you'd like to build a business that is not based on selling, take a look at this.

~ Coleen's Team

We've had absolutely beautiful weather here in Alaska the past couple of days. Just perfect. I do hope it is as nice where you are this first week of May.

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

If campground managers ask for a photo of your rig as part of the hiring process, they probably want to see that it is neat looking.

Finding House Sitting Jobs

If you are looking for a house-sitting or caretaking position, check with Realtors and rental management companies in the area where you want to spend some time. They may be able to give you some leads.

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....
