Workamper Accommodations May Vary

We’ve had our share of different workampng jobs over the years. Each one has offered it’s own unique RV site accommodations.

Some workamping jobs offer housing. In the case of our Arizona caretaking job, we had to use the house bathroom since there was no dump where we parked the RV…
