Update From Your Work For RVers and Campers Newsletter Editor

Heading to Alaska for the winter in -- and to stay in -- an RV? Just yesterday, I heard from a couple who is considering doing just that. Not only did Mary inquire about possibly doing it herself, she was asking for information about a friend. Seems Deborah works at Lowe's and is transferring to a new store opening near here.

This leads to several points:

1. Yes, you can live in an RV, in Alaska, all winter. It does take some planning and preparation. We've done it, and done it comfortably.

2. You can work for a national big box store and transfer with them as you want to move. That's one way to have mobility and see and experience different parts of the county, all while keeping the benefits of being a regular, full-time employee.

3. Not all full-time RVers are snowbirds who head south for the winter. There are advantages to going against the norm.

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

~~ I answered in part: Thank you, Jean, for submitting information about Winding River Resort. Read the report or add updates at the following page:

Words of Wisdom from Workers

Earning Extra Money While Building a Business

~~ Cheryl from writes: I don't understand why people seem to think that MLM is evil. Maybe they are confusing it with pyramid schemes. Or, maybe they remember when their friends first got into a particular company and pestered them to death to buy stuff they didn't want.

MLM is a terrific way to make some extra money and build a business that can continue to pay you income for many years to come. It's that simple.

You need to find a product or service that you believe in, and to find a sponsor who is willing to help you. I failed at this last part and had to learn all on my own.

The caveat I have is, if you are selling a product, are you required to make personal purchases? That's a real negative to me.

Working RVer Tip

Have More Than One Source of Income

Have multiple, simultaneous income streams. Work a part-time job while you are camp hosting. Run a small business from your RV at the same time you have part-time employment. Do freelance work while caretaking. Combine rental property income with another business. Have both on-line and off line businesses. Supplement the wages from your job with a website about your special interest. Make some money from your leisure-time hobby while enjoying the days off from your regular work.

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....
