Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Each "Working RVer Tip" in this issue fits the "what should be obvious, but oftentimes isn't" description. They aren't profound. But, they are fundamental to your success.

Tour Guide Tips: Six Tips for Being a Great Guide

These tour guide tips come from a Dan Austin, a tour company operator who has over 20 years in the business. "A great guide can make a successful trip just as quickly as an average or sub-par guide can ruin one," says Austin. Here are the top traits he looks for in selecting tour guides:

1. Focused with laser-like precision on making sure that guests feel like a V.I.P. 3. Spontaneous and can seamlessly deal with the unexpected, both pleasant and potentially disastrous. This means having a Plan B ready in case of such things as sudden weather changes, lodging snafus, and road delays.

4. Passionate and eager to share his / her knowledge about an unfamiliar destination.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Monthly Workamping

~~ Bob asks: We're planning our next winter's trip from NE to TX/NM/CA/OR and wondering if any RV campgrounds need workers on a monthly basis. We're both retired educators, carpenter/handyman, clerical/office/hostess. Any hopes for us?

~~ I answered in part: There's often a need for a workamper for just a month or so during the shoulder seasons. Another time when openings crop up are around the holidays. You will find the need for fill-in or substitute workampers any time of the year.

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....
