Whether you planned your whole life for a retirement on the road in your RV, ended up in a motorhome on a whim, or are still working through the process of becoming a fulltime RVer, the fact remains that you’ll need income to facilitate your love for travel! Even those who have carefully saved and created a budget for the road may find that there are times when weather, availability, or life in general can get in the way of well-laid plans. If you find yourself in this predicament your best solution is to make money while you travel—something RVers call “Workamping”.
Workamping can range from volunteer work to full-time pay, and often includes short-term or seasonal jobs. In fact, many workampers take seasonal jobs as Camp Hosts at RV campgrounds in exchange for space, electric and water hook-ups. This is a great way to work where you camp, meet other RVers, and save money on campground fees while you do it! Workamping can range from hard, manual labor to administrative work and maintenance duties. From theme parks, to large factories, to small RV campgrounds, the opportunity to find work while out on the road in your motorhome, travel trailer or 5th wheel is endless and varied.
There are many clubs and online guides that collect and post workamping offers, so if you are looking to make money on the road the almighty google is a great place to begin your search. Workampers are a diverse bunch, from volunteers to young travelers looking for full-time work, so there is sure to be a job that fits your specific skillset. When you have hit a place of financial stability, always be sure to invest in RV accessories that will save you money long term. A great place to start is with an RV Extended Warranty from Wholesale Warranties. You’ve workamped hard for the money in your pocket—don’t let it all go towards unforeseen mechanical breakdowns in your home on wheels! Instead, invest in an RV Warranty policy, and pay nothing but your low deductible. Get more information on motorhome warranties or towable warranties, and start saving money today.
