Update From Your RVers Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Did you know that we post jobs listings on the Work For RVers And Campers website several times a week, sometimes daily? Go to our Blog page and you'll see what's new on the website. The entries, including the lead-ins for the Help Wanted ads, are there. And they are dated, so you know when we posted them.

Notice a posting on the Blog that has tomorrow's date on it? That's because the computer program uses Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). GMT is International time. It marks the starting point of every time zone in the world.

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

Sell Quality Products That People Use Every Day

What should you look for when choosing a product line to sell?

Things people use frequently. Things they need. Things they want. Things that work. Things that are guaranteed.

That's why I'm an Independent Watkins Associate.

Take a look at the Watkins products. They might be what you want to sell. Sell online, at shows or flea markets, at good tasting event parties, or from the comfort of your home.

If the video falters as you watch it, hit replay and it should be good the second time.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

How Do RVers Go About Choosing a Flea Market?

~~ Babette & Lloyd of Fiddler's Flea Market wrote:

Here's a question from the actual flea market to you all:

• What would inspire you to participate at a particular flea market?
• How do you choose where you will go?
• What do you look for?
• What amenities do you need or would like to see?

Would love to be able to help accommodate you better in your endeavors and maybe see more of the RV'ers.

~~ Coleen answers:

We choose a basic region where we want to go, then look in Clark’s flea market guide to see what's in the area. It really helps if the market has a detailed listing in Clark's; the more info the better.

We look for markets that allow us to stay in our RV on the property.

We really appreciate being able to park at our selling area.

It is a huge help to us if we can leave our merchandise out on the tables, covering them with tarps, overnight.

If there is a food vendor on site (either a sit down restaurant or vendor booth or wagon), we usually patronize them.

We sometimes look for flea markets that are part of another event.

We only sell at flea markets that allow us to have our dog with us.

You'll find a longer, more detailed answer on the website. . ~ http://www.work-for-rvers-and-campers.com/choosing-a-flea-market.html ~ http://www.workersonwheels.com/clark's_flea_market_guide.html

What To Do? Work Is Portable, But Daughter's Education Isn't

~~ Jan writes:

I do always say since I work on the Net I can work anywhere as long as I have a PC and Net service available. When my now 15 year old gets out of school, that will be a possible option.

She is in a religious private school she loves. Because of our financial situation, her tuition is donated. All we have to pay for is her books and extras. Cannot beat that.

I often wish I could get out of this money hog and move closer to my other girls. I have that set as my goal in the three or four year future.

Kind of grounded at this time, but that would be great!

~~ Coleen replies:

I can see where the schooling situation would keep you in one place -- at least during the school year. When your younger daughter has school, you could stay in an RV park close to where you are now.

During the summers, you could move to an RV park closer to your other girls.

Monthly RV park rates are usually fairly reasonable. Compared to your current expenses, you'd probably save a bundle.

Along the way, you'd gain some freedom. When the time comes for you to travel more extensively, you'd already have gone through the transition to full-time RVer and be ready to hit the road.

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....
