Update From Your RVers Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Bob's dad died Christmas Eve. In the obituary, it said he had four loves: his faith, his family, his lake home, and Metropolitan. Clergy spoke of Dad's devotion to God and his support of the Catholic school systems. Family arrived from Alaska and Texas, from Washington and New York, and places in between - and there wasn't a single doubt that Dad loved each and every one of us. Although the folks own a condo in Fargo, we'd usually find them at the lake cabin. Dad worked for Metro for 40 years. You knew what he loved by the way he lived his life.

Does the way you live your life show what you love?

I can't count how many times I've heard someone say, "I'd love to go full-time RVing."

If that is your love, why not do it?

There are plenty of job options. There are many businesses you can run from an RV.

If you need help overcoming obstacles, email me with your questions.

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

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Jobs That Last a Month Or Less

Q. My husband and I only travel part-time and like to stay in one place for about a month. I sent an e-mail to one of the help-wanted ads in a magazine, but they do not want someone for just a month at a time. Is there work out there for those of who only stay in one place for a few weeks?

A. Yes. There are jobs that last from a few hours to a few weeks.

Because ads in print magazines need to be sent in weeks or months before publication, they are better suited for seasonal or longer term openings.

Decide where you want to work and contact parks in that area. Or, go there, and be available for immediate work.

Here are some examples of when campgrounds need very short term workers:
~ Holiday weekends
~ When seasonal staff need days off for their granddaughter's wedding
~ During special events in the community
~ Before the regular staff arrives for the season
~ When college students have returned to school, but the season is not quite over.

Consider jobs that are not at campgrounds.

Rallies, fairs, festivals, and special events (rodeos, car races, dog shows, beauty pageants, antique shows, etc.) hire very short-term employees because the shows are only in an area for a short time. They need workers a week or so before and after the event for set-up and teardown, as well as during the event.

Private temp staffing firms and state job services both place workers in short-term positions - sometimes for as short as a few hours, often days or weeks. Some of these are specialized, working with a certain industry, such as medical professionals or day laborers or office personnel, while others are general.

Another option that allows for frequent moves is self-employment.

Tips and Tidbits for Working RVers

~ When you place a Situation Wanted or Work Wanted ad with an online publication, expect the email address you use to be spammed. Creeps harvest the addresses from websites. You may want to get a temporary email address that you can use, and discard when you've found a position.

~ If you are earning a living while full-time RVing, chances are that you are not doing it within the RV community. If you are an employee, you are most likely not working at an RV park or campground. If you are a business owner, RVers are most likely not the bulk of your customer base.

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....
