Update From Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

I had a week without homework from the $100,000 Training -- What You MUST Do for Maximum Income class I'm taking. Bob and I took full advantage of the unexpected time that netted us. We gave our RV travel trailer home some spring cleaning. And, we took extra time to enjoy the great outdoors, soaking up the plentiful sunshine.

I love that as a writer we can take a drive to enjoy the scenery, and since I write about it, it counts as work. For the official report, on the 14 mile drive between Ninilchik and Clam Gulch, we counted 19 moose.

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


PS. The class I'm taking is available, at no charge, to everyone in the Summit Group.

Working RVer Tip

Work Wanted Ad or Resume?

What's the difference?

Your Work Wanted ad should be about the employer, not about you. Let the employer know how you can help him solve his needs. What can you do for him? Use it to attract employer's attention. Keep it short.

Your resume is about you. It's a longer (a page instead of a paragraph) document highlighting your relevant education, experience, and accomplishments.

You may post either or both on the work-for-RVers-and-campers.com website with no charge to you.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Typing Jobs

~~ Hallada asks: I enjoy typing. I live in North Dakota and want to find work during the summer months that I can do as I travel. I am an elementary teacher. I am planning to get a laptop, but would like to get a computer to fit the job I would get, so I am searching for someone who needs typing done. I have also done data entry. Thanks.

~~ I answered in part: Typing and data entry experience are certainly something you can put to use working on the road. Here are several ideas for putting your typist skills to work:

** Temporary staffing agencies.

** Virtual Assistant (VA).

** Editor or proof-reader.

** Typing college thesis and reports.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Permanent, Legal Address

~~ Genoveffa asks: What does an RVer use as a permanent address? In my current state (Maryland), it is not permissible to use a PO box or other non-permanent form of address on a driver's license. If you are living out of an RV and have no fixed home address anymore, how do you work around this problem of no permanent legal address?

~~ I answered in part: A permanent legal address doesn't need to be a physical address where you have a house or apartment. At least in some states it doesn't.

Many full-time RVers move to states that don't require you to physically reside at your address. Both Texas and South Dakota are popular new home states for full-time RVers.

Choose a mail forwarding service that gives you a street address, not a post office box address. I recommend The UPS Store in Rapid City, SD.

Working RVer Tip

Contracts Aren't for Everyone

Rather than requiring a written contract that spells out your specific job duties, go into the job with an attitude of flexibility. If you are willing to do what needs to be done, a reputable employer will treat you right. And, a less than scrupulous employer probably isn't going to honor a written contract, anyway.

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....
