What do you do for remote work when you’re living/traveling in RV. We’re looking into traveling, my husband is retired, and I’d like to find something remote.

We’ve written a few articles on how to find jobs while traveling, but we’ve never made a long list of job possibilities. This Facebook post, along with several others, gives us great insight into the many jobs RVers do from the road.

So, we decided to compile a long list of ways people make money while RVing based on the hundreds of Facebook responses. We figure there's no better way to be inspired than to see just how many options are out there.

Traveling Jobs

These positions require you to travel to different locations to work. Some examples of traveling jobs include travel nurse or railroad worker.

Seasonal Work

Many RVers work seasonal jobs at campgrounds, national parks, and tourist attractions. These jobs can include campground hosts, tour guides, or maintenance workers.

Other seasonal jobs revolve around the holidays, including retail, delivery drivers, pumpkin patches, Christmas tree lots, and more.

Workamping

Workamping is a combination of work and camping. RVers can work at campgrounds, RV parks, and other outdoor locations in exchange for a free campsite and sometimes even a wage.
