Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

For those of us in Alaska, it's time for winter (cold weather) RVing. We're having hard frosts here. Our morning temperature was in the teens today. We have our travel trailer water systems winterized. However, it is still fully outfitted with clothes, food, and other gear. With the addition of a couple five gallon jugs of water, we're ready to head out on another adventure -- or relaxing get-a-way.

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

SiteSell thinks they are the best when it comes to e-business solutions and success. I use them to build our websites. Though, I don't know if they are the best or not. Here's a challenge to see.

Very Short Term Jobs that Pay - When You Want to Move Frequently

Very short term jobs -- those lasting a few hours to a few weeks -- appeal to many working RVers. They are more plentiful than you may think. Here are some of the options for temporary positions.

Work the shoulder seasons at tourist attractions. These are the very beginning and very end of the season. They often have openings these times because the seasonal workers either haven't yet arrived or they've already left. These late arrivals and early departures are due to several reasons. High school and college students must work around their school schedules and those don't always completely match up with the tourist season.

Work fairs, RV rallies, home shows, rodeos, trade shows, and other events that only last a few days or a week or so. What can you do at these? Work security. Sell something. Food concessions. Set-up and tear down. Parking. Promotions.

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....
