So you want to live the full-time RVer lifestyle but you’re not financially independent? Do you, like most of us, still need to work to make a living? For many full-timers the answer is work-camping.
Strictly speaking, if you live in your RV, are employed or run a small business from your RV, you are work-camping. However, I think it’s accurate to say most Rvers typically associate work-camping with temporary work in the hospitality and service industries. Common jobs include hosting campgrounds, working at theme parks, working at RV parks and resorts, and seasonal jobs at places like Amazon’s warehouse.
Depending on the job, duties could include:
· Being a greeter and collecting fees at campgrounds
· Landscaping and handyman jobs
· Book keeping and office work
· Mechanic/equipment maintenance
· Retailing in a gift shop
· Janitorial services like cleaning bathrooms and showers
· House keeping
· Tour guide
· Various jobs at theme parks
· Working in a kitchen
Work-camping is a great way to support yourself as you live the RV lifestyle. Positions are often offered to couples and most places try to give couples the same hours so they have time off together. Some offers are definitely better than others. Look at several to compare and then go with what fits you best. Here is what one work camper had to say about his first experience.
