Traveling America: Camping & Working As You Go

More people are seeking out the stress free lifestyle offered by owning an RV. It’s all about spending time with family, the open road, and being anywhere you want to be with a new view at every turn.

As more RV owners seek out a way to stay on the road living a wonderful lifestyle and at the same time try to earn an income to support that lifestyle, campground owners are finding that employing these campers is a great way to obtain help in their campgrounds during busy periods and who better to work with fellow RVers than RV owners themselves, according to a news release.

Typically RV Park owners offer a free site and hourly pay to campers that want to work in the park or they might just offer a free site depending on the size of the campground. The working campers help in the office, help with maintenance of the campground, or they could be helping fellow campers with boat rentals or organizing events.

Typically RVers work between 20-30 hours a week in exchange for the free site and these could also be paid hours depending on how the campground organizes their working campers schedules.

It has turned out to be a win-win situation and campground owners have had so much success with using work campers that they seek them out each busy season.

Other companies have found work campers to be a great resource to help with busy periods during the year. Amazon employs working campers to help them during busy periods and there are companies like Oil Field Gate Guarding companies that utilize the services of RVers. Oil Field Gate Guards work on oil drilling sites and log traffic in and out of the site.
