Hitting the road as a full-time RVer isn’t that hard. Keeping the dream going can be if you don’t know how to support your full-time RVing lifestyle.

A new book, “So, You Want to be a Workamper” by John and Kathy Huggins is a handy guide for introducing new RVers to the world of road work.

The Workamping Basics

As young, non-retired full-timers, Jim and I discovered that the best way to support a full-time RVing lifestyle is to juggle several income streams at once. Early in our travels we were introduced to the world of workamping by two kind campground hosts and since then we’ve been working our way across America at paid and volunteer workamping opportunities.

But as I discovered in the Huggins’ book, there’s still a lot we don’t know about making the most of workamping opportunities.

For example, this succinct 75-page guide clearly explains the basics of working on the road but it’s also packed with lesser-known tips like how obtaining a Certified Pool Operator (CPO) license from the National Swimming Pool Foundation makes you far more employable and worth more money at campgrounds needing pool maintenance crews.

Huggins’ book also clearly explains the ins and outs of applying for work at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers campgrounds, which was a total mystery to us.

So, You Want to be a Workamper presents dozens of ways you can find unpaid workamping jobs through well-known organizations like Workamper News.

It also shares job hunting strategies with lesser-known groups that you may not be familiar with, such as Forever Resorts, a concessionaire to the National Park Service.

You’ll also enjoy a general overview of different ways to make money by utilizing your skills, hobbies and interests.

The book provides generous tips for how to create income by doing everything from becoming a mobile RV technician to auctioning items on eBay and becoming a tour guide.

What I love most about this book is Huggins’ honesty, which accurately reflects our experiences during almost seven years of full-time RV travel:

“You will not get rich workamping, and you most likely will not find a career doing this work, but it is honest work that needs to be done. You can supplement other income streams with workamping to stretch your camping budget.”

About the only thing I don’t like about the book are the far too complicated URLs included in the copy (using Bit.ly or TinyURL links would have been more helpful).
