Update From Your Work For RVers and Campers Newsletter Editor

Bob and a fellow RVer are out halibut fishing today. I've been assured they will limit out on chickens or barn doors. Some say the small fish (less than 45 pounds) are better for eating. The 200 – 300 pounders are prized for the photo ops. Regardless of the size, it's hard to beat a meal of fresh Alaskan halibut, lightly seasoned with salt and Watkins black pepper, and sautéed in a bit of butter. Many of the fishing guides and their deckhands are working RVers.

We have a couple more RV worker profiles added to the website. Both of them achieved their writing dreams while RVing. Tracy published a book of poetry. Becky now travels the Write Highway. Read their profiles. Then, why not add yours for other RVers to see? .


Happy Father's Day to all you dads, granddads, and other men who play important fatherly roles for a younger generation.

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

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Oops! The Ideal Job Isn't So Great. Now What?

~~ Carolynn writes: What if the so called ideal volunteer RV'r position you committed to isn't a very good match and you feel the need to make a change?

~~ My answer: It happens all the time. Talk to the volunteer coordinator, campground manager, or whoever is in charge. Be polite, respectful, and honest. Let them know that you aren't happy and why.

It could be that they can make changes. Sometimes, just a few small changes can turn a bad situation into an enjoyable one.

Sometimes, the best thing to do is simply move on. But, do talk with them first. Arrange an early departure date, rather than sneaking off in the middle of the night. If you are miserable, staying probably isn't good for either you or the campground (or wherever you are volunteering).

~~ Your thoughts? Post your comments.

Working RVer Tip

Need a job for just a couple of days? Try the local temp service agency. They hire workers for day labor on construction jobs, to work in restaurants, to work in factories, and to staff offices, among other things.

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....
