Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Lots of job openings now for this coming summer season. It's the time of year when plans are changing and campgrounds are receiving cancellations for agreements work campers made months ago. If you want to spend the summer work camping in Texas, you have more options than you can shake a stick at, as they say.

We left the heat of Texas and drove into white-out snow conditions in Nebraska. We are now visiting my sister and brother-in-law in Wyoming.

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

Flea Marketing - Our Personal Experience as Working RVers Selling at Markets

Flea marketing and the RV lifestyle are extremely compatible. For the first several years that we were full-timers, we worked as flea market vendors. We sold what we termed dignified merchandise.

~~ This is the first of a three part article I wrote about our years as flea market vendors. This article focuses mainly on how and where we found our merchandise. Read it on the website.

Bounce back when things go wrong. Fretting about them isn't going to help you. Keep in mind that being flexible is one of the great things about RVing. Go on to Plan B.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Work Camping Pastors

~~ Patti asks: Do campgrounds ever want a retired pastor to hold services during the summer months?

~~ I answered in part: Yes, ministers work at campgrounds. Similar, but yet different, are families who work at campgrounds providing worship services.

Another option might be to provide clergy services at hospitals. Yet another option is to work at a theme attraction providing worship services.

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....
