Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

I hope this finds you in the midst of a fun-filled and safe Memorial Day holiday.

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

Working RVer Tip

Landscape Contractors

Landscape contractors are a good source of spring jobs. They are preparing ground for new sod and laying the sod; removing protective winter mulch and replacing it with a decorative variety; and planting trees and shrubbery. Although they may need backhoe and tractor operators, they also need people to run a hand shovel and rake.

Working RV Profile: Slow Pitch Softball Umpire

~ by Doug Dammeier

Full-time RVing allows me to work year round as an umpire for slow pitch softball games.

I pay $75 per year in USSSA or ASA fees, buy a shirt and hat, and I'm in business. I'm 59 years of age and the work is both easy and enjoyable.

My name is Doug and my wife Paula and I live full-time in our motor home. We stay in the Florida area during the winter months and roam up north during the spring and summer.

Career Caretaker Mahnessah Talks about His Caretaking Lifestyle

Mahnessah is a life-long career caretaker. He crisscrosses the U.S. and Canada in his RV, accompanied by his dog, Miah, Mahnessah has been a caretaker for properties throughout the U.S., ranging from private homes to camps to crystal mines to a Rocky Mountain retreat center.

Part of Mahnessah's connection to the earth and his traveling character might have something to do with his surname, Waukeeshawaukee, which comes from the Crow Indians and means "walk with your spirit."

Mahnessah began his caretaking lifestyle by housesitting for various people. He later found out about career caretaking, when he read an article about it in a magazine. It brought him into a whole new way of living and learning. Mahnessah learned that he could choose where he wanted to live and work. He explains, "It's a totally great way of seeing this country from Mexico to Alaska and the Yukon. I like the challenge it brings to me."

Working RVer Tip

It's All a Matter of Perspective

The answer you receive will depend on who you ask. If you ask a volunteer worker about job openings, he will probably tell you about volunteer positions. If you ask a paid employee the same question, he will probably tell you about paying jobs.

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....
