Update From Your Work For RVers and Campers Newsletter Editor

I hope your new year has gotten off to a terrific start!

Our year started out cold – as in 30 some degrees below zero. So, why are we here? Sometimes I think about our winters in south Texas and Arizona and wonder that myself. And then, I step outside and look at the brilliant coral sunset, the trees sparkling with frost, an eagle soaring overhead, and listen – and the only sound I hear is a nearby moose munching alders. That peacefulness is, as they say, priceless.

That said, we aren't turning down an offer for some sun and fun in March. Once again, we qualified for the annual Watkins Performance Reward Points Grand Prize. This year, the trip is a Caribbean cruise with stops in Belize City and Cozumel.

Let us know what you are doing this winter. Email or use the form on the website.

New Flea Market Guides Are Here

The new version of Clark's Flea Market U.S.A. is in. This is the 88th Edition, fresh from the printer a couple weeks ago. Dot Clark, who puts the directory together, put in a lot of time verifying information and updating this edition. The type is also a bit larger, making it easier to read. To help you identify it, this new one (the 88th Edition) has a cartoon picture on the cover.

Wise Words from Our Readers

Campground Owner's Side of Things

~~ The article I posted last week that listed the commonalities I hear when RVers write about a negative work experience generated a reply from campground owner Todd Miller. He shares his frustrations regarding workampers and ends his email with this comment: In all fairness, you should publish an article on the flip side of employers 10 most common problems with work campers and give these people an insight of running a campground.

~~ I replied that it would be great to have a section on Work-For-RVers-And-Campers.com that gives the campground owner's perspective. So, if you are a park or resort owner/manager, or you hire workampers for another business, I'm asking you to please step up and share your viewpoint. What makes a good or bad staff member? What do you look for when hiring? What can working RVers do to make themselves more valuable to you?

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....
