Working RVer Tip

Interview your employer about little things that matter. An example is the pot-luck dinner. Some workampers tell me they felt left out because they were not included in pot-luck dinners at the campground. Others tell me they felt they never had any free time, because they were expected to be at every pot-luck and social gathering. The atmosphere and working environment can be more important than the number of hours worked or the actual tasks you will be doing.

Working RVer Tip

Does working 10 hours a week in exchange for your RV site mean that you will be working one 10-hour day a week? Or, does it mean that you'll be working two 5-hours days? Or, does it mean that you'll work an hour and a half every day? You cannot safely assume the answer. Ask.

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....
