Many RVers we talk to have the dream of one day being able to leave their jobs, friends, family, and basically the day-to-day life they’ve been living, in order to travel in their RV to destinations unknown. Sure, many folks do wait until retirement and do just that, staying on the road for months, or even years at a time.
What if you don’t want to wait, but you still need income? Well, some people are turning to Workamping. The short version is that these individuals, couples, and sometimes families travel from place to place and find work in exchange for a free campsite, utilities, wages or some combination of all.
They’ll typically find positions at privately owned campgrounds, RV resorts, seasonal work (i.e. Christmas trees, fall hay rides, pumpkins, etc.), state and national parks, and even some retail stores. You’ll usually find that Workampers are couples, including many retirees, but it’s not uncommon to find single individuals as well.
Although there are some year-round Workamping jobs, most are seasonal, which fits in just fine with the folks that fill the jobs since most people enjoy the travel that comes along with Workamping.
If this is sounds like something that might interest you, probably the best place to start is on the Workamper website, Workamper.com.
Good luck if you decide to look into this.
Until next time… Happy RVing!
