When you first purchased your RV you were probably thinking about the camping and vacationing that you would be doing in it. Am I right? But, did you know that for most RVers the majority of the time their RV sits in the driveway or in storage? Sad, innit? These vehicles were made for YOUR recreation, yet most of the time they go unused! Fortunately, there are some options!
Here is my favorite - working while living in your RV and traveling the country. There are many jobs available either part-time or full-time that give you the opportunity to live in a variety of locations. Sure, a lot of these jobs are in campgrounds doing maintenance, check in and out of guests and cleaning bathrooms, but that's only if you think within the box. Let's look beyond that!
Did you know that Amazon (yes, the dot com giant) hires an Amazon Camperforce every year to work in their warehouses? They have warehouses all over the US.
Warehousing not your cup of tea? How about working at an amusement park like Adventureland Park or Dollywood? Or maybe you prefer farming. Then you may want to consider working during the Sugar Beet harvest season in the receiving stations of Easter North Dakota and Western Minnesota.
Perhaps working for a winery or brewing company in the Black Hills of South Dakota is your cup of - um, beer?! These are just a few of the jobs available to workampers that don't take place in an RV park, yet provides you the opportunity to live more freely. You can work and live in the northern part of the country during summers and in the southern part during the winters.
Now, consider this! There are millions of RVers out there who need knowledgeable people to maintain their RVs. If you are handy at repairing your RV, then there is a business opportunity for you! If you'd like to become knowledgeable about maintaining your RV (or other peoples RVs) then be sure to visit our RVing Network page!
