Working Part Time, RV’ing Full Time

We met a lot of full time RV’ers out there this winter and I was suprised by how many of them have seasonal jobs.  In State and Federal parks you meet a lot of camp hosts who are there doing their jobs in return for a free sight and maybe some electricity and other services. Others “work camp” for a site and a bit of income. I talked to one couple who work a bit in Branson every year for tickets to all the shows they can fit in. Others, like us, need to hurry home to our seasonal summer jobs so we can head out again next winter.

At one point I thought I should compose a list of all the possible “seasonal jobs”. I was thinking that might remove some of the mystique around the whole question. Really though, the answer is for us all to make a list of what we would like to do seasonally, then get out there and find one that will work for you.

They really are out there, all we need to do is look.

  1. There are tons of things you can do to work or volunteer on the road- even have your own business, accessing the Internet from your RV. I like your suggestion that you make a list of what you would like to do – also where you’d like to work and how much money you need to make. Go from there. I’ve worked in national parks as a paid seasonal – good money, paid vacation and sick days. We also sold Christmas trees, volunteered, did temporary work and worked for tourist businesses. So many fun things to do- and do while you are there.
