Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Flea markets are popular in southern Texas and we went to two large ones this week. Wednesday, we went to Don-Wes, in Donna. Today, we went to the one in Brownsville. Vendors were selling everything from new Chinese imports to local produce. Several dealers had baby chicks, rabbits, parakeets, and other live animals.

Bob commented that it looked like some of the vendors just took everything out of their house and hauled it down to the market to see what would sell. Clothing, tools, toys, and electronic equipment. Jewelry, furniture, purses, and appliances. Collectibles, tires, and paint. Rocks, rugs, cosmetics, and cars.

There were multiple food concession stands. Some vendors offered services, such as tours, windshield repair, and massage. What a variety of jobs for RVers right there. Many of the vendors did have RVs parked nearby.

When Bob and I started full-time RVing, we worked the flea markets most every weekend. Flea market vending is definitely one of the more popular options for RVers who choose to work somewhere other than campgrounds.

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

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....
