Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Bob's busy fixing a portable generator this afternoon. That lead to the article you'll find here about working as a small engine mechanic.

Flea markets are starting up again for the summer season in the northern states. They continue to be popular with working RVers. I think we are heading to one tomorrow.

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

Coleen

Small Engine Repair and Maintenance Work for RVers Small engine repair and maintenance is a practical way RVers with mechanical knowledge can earn a living. There's a definite need for it and the required tools are small enough to carry with you.

Most campgrounds have lawn mowers, weed eaters, chainsaws, and similar gas powered equipment. Chances are high that those tools need routine maintenance and a good cleaning. It's also likely that one or more of them needs repairs.

Your typical campground owner is busy. He may know that keeping his power equipment in good shape is important. But, even if he knows how to do it, he probably has a hard time finding the time to do it. He'll appreciate a capable RVer who is onsite, with tools, and who offers to do the job.

These Flea Market Supplies Can Improve Your Day at the Swap Meet

These swap meet supplies can make your business run smoother and make it more profitable for you.

• Markers and poster board or an erasable white board. They make it easy to call attention to your booth, to your flea market displays, and to specials you are offering.

• Small stickers for pricing individual items. They lessen sale day confusion for you, your helpers, and your customers.

• Newspapers for wrapping breakables.

• Bags. They are a convenience that often encourages customers to buy more. Recycled grocery sacks work fine.

• Comfortable clothing. Dress in layers as temperatures often change from early morning set up to the heat of the afternoon. Comfortable shoes are nearly essential, especially if you’ll be standing most of the day.

Working RVer Tip

If you are looking for short work camping assignments, consider being a camp host at a schoolyard. You may be welcome for stays at short as two weeks. This is especially true if after your two weeks is done you then move to another school in the district.

Find a Campground Job: Here's the Secret for Finding a Workamper Job You'll Love

You'll be where you want to work. You'll be working with RVers that you want to work with.

Check in as a paying customer for a few days. Look. Listen. Absorb. Be out and about. Visit with the campers. Visit with the staff and management. Get a feel for the place.

That way, you will have a better idea of what the campground is like. You’ll know if the park is someplace you'd like to spend an extended time. You'll know about the people, the facilities, and the community.

And, the campground management will know about you. You won't need to tell them that you are neat, articulate, and talented because they will see it for themselves. They'll see that you are sociable or have particular skills. They may see you physically doing certain jobs. They will know that you are there, ready and willing to go to work now.

Reader Feedback

Making It on a Wing and a Prayer

~ Jerry and Kimberly write: We came out here over five years ago on what we call on "A Wing and a Prayer." We were actually tenting it, no nest egg of any sort, basically no cash at all. We had no real plan since all of our 18 months of planning had fallen through and nothing was going right, but we knew in our hearts that this is what we wanted to do before it was too late for us. My brother, at an early age of 40, had passed away and I made a promise to him that I would follow my dream.

We still struggle financially out here in this lifestyle since we are still way too young to retire and our only income is what we work. Most jobs, as you know, do not pay very well, but we make it work because we are living our dream and having the time of our lives … seeing places we would have never seen if we had not taken the plunge and just went for it.

Welcome!

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....
