Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

It's that time of year when RV parks in southern states are receiving workamper cancellations. Whatever the reason, plans RVers made last summer have changed. Park managers are finding themselves without the staff they counted on having. That means now is an excellent time for you to find a campground position.

I think Bob and I will be working in Alaska this winter. Although we've been back several months, we still have projects we want to do here. Of course, our plans may change, too.

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

If you are looking for a publication that lists page upon page of Help Wanted ads, I recommend The Caretaker Gazette. It is available both as an online publication and a printed on paper magazine. You'll find jobs at campgrounds listed in it, as well as for various other caretaking work, such as jobs at resorts, on farms, and doing personal care.

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....
