Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

The feedback we get from this newsletter is always interesting and sometimes…well, I'm not sure what to call it. Some of the emails, you just would not believe. To those of you who write to express your gratitude: Thank you; we appreciate your kind comments. We also from time to time hear from readers who aren't too happy with the newsletter or with me.

One recent email came from an upset reader chastising me for sharing our current personal work experiences. That struck me as both odd and hilarious. This newsletter started back in 1994 -- for the purpose of sharing our personal working while RVing experiences. Since there are so many job options for RVers, through the years we also shared what other RVers were doing to earn their living. That sharing of work knowledge and skills, along with providing info on what kinds of work are available to RVers, remains the core function of both the Workers On Wheels e-zine and website.

Would you like to share with our readers what you are doing to finance your RV life and travels? If so, email us. We'd be glad to post your story.

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

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....
