Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Happy New Year! I hope it is getting off to a great start for you. May 2011 be the year you make your dreams come true.

Bob and I are still in Lafayette, LA, with plans to be heading out soon. I think we are going somewhat directly to Port Isabel, TX. We've been headed that way for over two months. If we don't put a halt to the distractions, we may never get there.

As the new year starts, I am asking you to take a look at my Summit Group website. I consider you to be my friends and I have something very valuable to offer. I would be remiss if I did not at least straightforwardly point this information out to you. The information you see there could financially change your life forever. It won't meet the needs of everyone. It may not be right for you. But, please watch the video and consider it.

~ Financially Change Your Life Forever

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

Working RVer Tip

Maintenance or janitorial? Maintenance is keeping equipment in operating order, and in some cases, restoring it to operating order. Janitorial work is cleaning. I see that both employers and employees get these terms confused. If it matters to you which you do, ask for clarification.

Working RVer Tip

Apologize if it is appropriate. Being defensive or refusing to take responsibility you’re your mistake can not only cost you your current job, but future ones as well.

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....
