Workers On Wheels Work For RVers and Campers

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Restoring a ghost town. Distributing free shoes. Playing in a blue grass band. Being paid hourly wages for every hour worked at an RV resort, besides receiving a FHU site and utilities. Writing romance novels. Designing video games. These are just some of the ways working RVers earn their livings that we discuss in this issue.

If you have stories to tell about RVing with pets, please send them my way. RVing pets are very much on my mind right now. A few days ago, we made the painful decision to have our pooch euthanized. She'd been RVing with us for 16 years and had numerous age related problems. We loved her deeply and greatly miss her, but for her sake, it was time to give her those final scratches.

With all the job possibilities mentioned in this issue, there should be something for everyone. Be sure to follow the links back to the website to get the job details and the rest of the stories.

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

A Romance Writer Touches Hearts: Here's How to Get Started

Does the idea of being a romance writer strike your fancy? I know some of you scoff at the idea. But, romance novels sell. Someone writes all those love stories and gets paid for doing so. Writing a romance novel and RVing are highly compatible. You can write from wherever your RV travels take you. But, you can also use your travels to research and help set the scene for your books.

Business Consultant: Is Management Consulting the Working RVer Job for You?

Most people have no difficulty noticing problems in their workplace. When faced with something that makes their jobs more difficult or costs the company money, typical workers shake their heads, grumble to co-workers, and hope that "someone" will do something to fix the problems. If you're the type of person who not only notices problems, but you can also come up with solutions to those problems, you may have what it takes to become a business consultant.

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....
