Working RVer Tip

Personal spending increases for the holiday season, creating jobs. These are not all minimum wage retail jobs. There is also an increased demand for temporary jobs requiring college degrees and experience, jobs that pay very well.

Reader Feedback

Mary and Harold write: Enjoyed your blog entry about taking positions right for you and leaving others for those who might be better suited for them. That is why we took this position and are now forwarding other positions that are brought to our attention to those who might be interested. This position is perfect for us this year, as we need the ability to leave when Allan arrives and for holiday time with the family. Next year may be an entirely different situation and we may want something in another area for a different reason. Things change and your reasons for accepting a position one year may not be valid the following year. Great post! Keep it up!

Go to the Work for RVers and Campers blog.


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....
