Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

What do you like to see in your employment or volunteer position contract? What things do you consider the most important? Campground owners are asking for input on writing their work camper contracts. This is your chance to voice your opinion of what should be in the written agreement. Email me with your thoughts and suggestions.

Coleen's email.

Both of the featured parks this week have golf courses. One is a city campground that you can read more about in the Volunteer Organization Profile. The other is a private high-class resort that you can read about in the Employer Profile below. Both are looking for working RVers, although the parks and job descriptions vary greatly between the two parks.

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

If you are looking for a bi-monthly (every other month) printed publication that lists page upon page of Help Wanted ads, especially for caretaking positions, I recommend The Caretaker Gazette.

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.

A Home Business Gives You Maximum Freedom and Income Opportunity

With a home business, you’re the boss. It can be an unlimited income opportunity. But, the fun, flexibility, and freedom may be the best benefits of self-employment and a work at home small business.

Small Engine Repair and Maintenance Work for RVers Small engine repair and maintenance is a practical way RVers with mechanical knowledge can earn a living. There's a definite need for it and the required tools are small enough to carry with you.

Psychics Are in Demand and You May Already Have What it Takes to Be One Psychics always have job opportunities. Work as a tarot card reader or fortune teller. Don't dismiss this as being for only the supernatural with obscure clairvoyant, metaphysical powers.

Property Caretakers Are As Varied As Their Caretaking Jobs Good property caretakers are honest and dependable. Those may be the only characteristics they share. Their skills, education, personal preference, background, and outlook on life vary greatly.

Reader Feedback

~ Ralph Soares writes: I want to thank you and yours for the hard work that you do. I have gotten a lot of good information from your site. I have been signed up to others that all they do is send emails wanting money for seminars and books from the gurus. So, thank you for being honest and helpful, without trying to take all of my money away.

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....
