If you've thought about making some extra money with a blog or website, or if you want to get serious and build an e-commerce business, I suggest you look at SBI. It is a suite of tools, all in one place. It's a great how-to guide -- and, they do a lot of the behind the scenes work for you.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

RV Motorhome Salesperson

~~ Trish asks: How much money does someone who sells RVs for a living make annually?

~~ I answered in part: According to, the average salary for recreational vehicle salesman jobs is $66,000 per year. This is for RVs in general. Since most new motorhomes are more expensive than trailers, it would seem likely the average motorhome salesman would earn more than that.

~~ Read the longer version of my answer -- and add your comments -- on the website.

Help Wanted Ads Publication

If you are looking for a printed newsletter (magazine) 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. Some of the positions are at campgrounds. Many of them are for various other caretaking work, such as jobs at resorts, on farms, managing estates, and doing personal care.

~~ Order The Caretaker Gazette (or learn more about it) from our website.

Meet More Real Working RVers

Last week I introduced you to some RVers who have gone beyond the dreaming stage and are actually out there, working while RVing. These folks are cutting their RVing costs, supplementing their income, and/or completely earning their living while full-time RVing. This week, let's meet a few more. You can read a little about them below. Click the links to read more about these RVers and what they are doing.

Writing RV Adventure Books
In the pioneer days of America, iron men and stout hearted women loaded their belongings into a Conestoga wagon, hitched up a team of oxen, mules or horses, and headed out. These early road rogues crossed the plains heading for the territory of their dreams, the "promised land." We are John and Beth Swaim, two novice explorers who set out to do that very thing, traveling around the country in a reality adventure to "find America" in our modern day covered wagon. Not just the well-known and commonly visited sites, but also those places often missed or passed by in the modern world of travel. These lesser-known places are neither gone nor forgotten; they exist and are still very much a part of the countries fabric, with stories to tell.

Camp Workers
We are the Allens, camp workers Eddie and Mel, from Garden City, KS. This is our first full year as full time RVer's and workampers. We are having a great time and highly recommend it to others. We are so glad we decided to retire and not wait another three years.

Early Learning Center Teachers
My wife and I have been work campers for five years and have found the perfect job. We both now teach at an Early Learning Center. My wife teaches the toddlers and I teach the two year olds.

Front Desk and Maintenance
We are front desk and maintenance workers. We are in our 2nd summer working at the KOA at St. Mary, MT. We are right outside of the east entrance to Glacier National Park's Going to the Sun Road.

When Only One RVer is Available to Work

Perhaps your partner is disabled and can't work. Maybe your spouse already has a job. Could be you are part of a couple, but one of you is home-schooling the kids and isn't available for another position. Or, maybe you are a solo RVer. Whatever your circumstances, if you are an individual looking for a work camping job, instead of looking for a position for a couple, we have a special section on our website for you.

Find answers to your questions about workamping solo, including how to overcome ads that want couples.

Positive RVing Attitudes

There is nothing like dream to create the future. Utopia to-day, flesh and blood tomorrow. ~ Victor Hugo

My core beliefs revolve around the idea that we should live to the best of our abilities - we should live and let live. ~ Enya

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....
