Update From Your Work For RVers and Campers Newsletter Editor

Working together can be the key to full-time RVing success and living happily in small a small space. While I'm doing this newsletter, Bob's got a load of laundry in the washer and he's doing up some dishes. Yes, I'm fortunate!

If the links here in the newsletter are too long and split onto two lines, and therefore don't work for you, you may want to read the newsletter on the website. Otherwise, you can copy and paste the link, and it should work ok.

To make it easier for you to find what you are looking for on the Work For RVers and Campers Website, I added a search function to the home page.

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

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Why Work In a Campground?

~~ An RVer asks: Why would I want to work in a campground instead of getting a job somewhere else? Campground owners want too many hours each week just for a site. What's the big attraction to workamping? What am I missing?

~~ I answered in part: Sometimes it is a matter of convenience. You can run home during your break to check the dog.

Sometimes it is a matter of community. RVers tend to like to work with other RVers.

Sometimes it is a matter of being where you want to be. State park regulations may limit you to 14 days camping in the park. The park where you want to stay may be too expensive for your budget or they may be full.

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....
