Is The Workamper Lifestyle For You?

 


Visitors: 275

If you've been dreaming of traveling the highways in your RV, but see the adventure as something far in the future when you retire, then you may want to seriously consider giving the Workamper lifestyle a try. You can live your dream now; it just takes a little preparation and commitment.

Many of us dream of being able to travel in our RV and camp at will in America's most beautiful locations, but it never happens. For most, it remains just a dream. There is a small army of people who have brought their dream to reality by combining their love of travel with the ability to work and pay their way through life.

There are literally thousands of jobs that are suited to the traveling lifestyle. RV Parks across the United States hire people in office positions, maintenance, recreation, and other positions. You aren't expected to be a long-term employee. A commitment of a few weeks or months is all that is required. Most don't expect you to have extensive campground experience, and if you do a decent job, they will be happy to have you work for them again next season.

RV Parks aren't the only employer of workampers. There are paying jobs in seasonal sales, property caretaking, tour guides, construction, and many other occupations. If you already have some retirement income and want to save on the costs of campground fees, there are thousands of camp host opportunities available where you exchange a few hours each week for a free RV site. These opportunities will be in state parks, city and county parks, and federal campgrounds.

It is possible that your employer has multiple locations across the United States making it easy for you to simply request relocation. If, for example, you work at Wal-Mart, you can request a transfer to any of their store locations. There are very few places in America that aren't close to a Wal-Mart, so you can continue to be a full-time employee and experience living virtually anywhere in the United States. There are many other companies that have nationwide locations. Just give it a little thought.

If you don't want to wait until your dream is just a good idea that never happened, consider the Workamper lifestyle. You aren't getting any younger, and the sooner you start, the more you will be able to experience. When you get tired of where you're living, simply hook up and move on to your next adventure.
