Fast Cash... Ten Ways to Get Quick Cash

You don't have time to go job hunting, build a business, or save for it. You need a way to get quick cash.

1. Have a garage sale. Clean out the RV and tow vehicle. Sell some of those things that you no longer use. If you are in an RV park, you might organize a park wide sale, turning it into a fun event for everyone. This is particularly good if the things you have to sell appeal to other RVers.

5. Day labor. Temporary staffing agencies hire workers for a few hours to a few days. Paperwork is usually minimal.

6. Campground odd jobs. Look around the campground for something that needs to be done, that you can do. I'm not talking about seasonal employment or a work-for-site workamper position. Rather, look for a one-time job that needs doing, that you can arrange to do for pay.

8. Pawn shops. Perhaps the original advance cash option. If your need for fast cash is to hold you over until a check comes in, this fast cash loan could make sense.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Recommendations for Minnesota Workampers

~~ Ed M. asks: We are hopeful Minnesota workampers, with children. We're not quite retired. We're seeking opinions of those knowledgeable to recommend a position or campground in Minnesota. We're looking for the right start to get into workamping in Minnesota. Any recommendations for us?

~~ I answered in part: Since you are already in Minnesota, you already have a head start. If you've done some camping and RVing within the state, what are your favorite campgrounds there?

My suggestions are the same, regardless of what state you want to work in. The following link will take you to the answer I gave another RVer looking for Florida information.

Also, look through the other information on this website about campground jobs.

~ Campground and RV Parks Work

And, RVers with Minnesota campground experience, please chime in here and offer Ed your specific campground recommendations.

Working RVer Tip

Take Off Your Blinders

Broaden your money making endeavors to expand beyond just one thing. Extreme focus can be great for achieving something quickly. But, it can – and likely will – disappear just as fast. Multiple income streams will keep money coming in during the natural ebbs and tides of seasonal jobs, home-based businesses, and workamper situations. Instead of being blind to new opportunities, keep your eyes open to the options.

Positive RVing Attitudes

In life, you can have a million excuses or a million dollars, but not both. Congratulations if you've stopped making excuses and have started making progress towards your dreams! ~ Unknown

You've got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was. ~ Irish Proverb

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....
