Update From Your Work For RVers and Campers Newsletter Editor

Some folks decide to go full-time RVing and then look for ways to support themselves while they travel. For others, full-time RVing is a way to accommodate a career or passion they already have. The latter was the case for some of our readers, as well as from some of the "big names" in RVing. Read on to see what I mean.

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

Traveling Horse People

Traveling horse-people, helping others!

It became obvious that the time had come to do what we have always dreamed of, and that is to ride our beloved horses wherever we can and stay out of the snow and ice of Northern Washington State.

Everywhere we go, we do what needs to be done -- yard clean-up, painting, picking rock, caretaking of others horses, housekeeping, baking the famous pecan pie, walnut pie, cinnamon rolls, biscuits, etc. This is what we love to do, and then ride when the work is done.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Master Electrician

~~ Bill asks: Is there work for a Master Electrician in the RVing world? I will be traveling with my wife, 2 dogs, 1 McCaw parrot and 2 HD bikes. My wife has a number of skills: front desk, office, accounting, cleaning to name a few.

~~ I answered in part: Yes. In fact there's great history between full-time RVing and working as an electrician. You've maybe heard of the Escapees RV Club; it is one of the largest, with much emphasis on full-time RV travel. It was started by Joe and Kay Peterson. Joe was an electrician.

Joe and Kay, along with their family, started full-time RVing to follow Joe's work. Rather than stay in motels, they lived in their trailer, moving from job to job.

Words of Wisdom from Workers

Use Our Help Wanted and Work Wanted Ads

Working RVer Tip

Use Common Sense To Avoid Scams

When you post (or ask to have posted for you) a Work Wanted classified ad or your resume on a website, and you include your email address in the ad, it is out there on the web for anyone and everyone to see. That is both the beauty and the beast of Internet advertising.

You may want to get a disposable email address to use for posting on the Internet.

Scams have been circulating for years. If you get an email from outside the USA or Canada, if the grammar is poor, and if it wants you to be a bookkeeper or agent to deposit money into your bank account, and then send money to them, it most likely is a scam. Use common sense. You know that a legitimate business will have its own bank account – it won't need to ask you to handle its deposits. Those scams are not new and your best option is probably just to delete the emails.

Positive RVing Attitudes

What counts is not what you can do, but what you do. ~ Unknown

Persistence is what makes the impossible possible, the possible likely, and the likely definite. ~ Robert Haft

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....
