So, You Want to Be a Workamper?


Have you ever asked yourself how you can finance the RV lifestyle? Most of us have. If you’re thinking or dreaming about becoming a full-time or part-time RVer, and you must work to make it happen, then this is the book for you.

In it you will find what we’ve learned (often the hard way) in over eight years of Workamping while full-time RVing. We provide many tested links to the websites of those businesses that hire Workampers and volunteers. The advice we offer is based on our own experience. We take you from doing the initial homework, to choosing the right job type for you, to the writing a Workamper resume, to the interview, and way beyond.

We discuss what other considerations there may be such as taxes and home domicile. We wind it up with a chapter on our most memorable lessons learned. We have had many experiences working on the road, most good, but some not so much. This book would also make a great gift for a would-be Workamper or for folks who wonder why we do this.

Paperback. 94 pages. Written by John & Kathy Huggins.

About the authors:  Kathy and I are really just plain folks like you, but we live in a thirty nine foot RV instead of a house. Maybe we lost our minds a bit; but we’re happy we did. I am retired from the US Navy as well as a retired manufacturing Quality Manager. Kathy has worked extensively in the medical administrative field. We had travelled worldwide due to my naval service as well as locations on both coasts of our beautiful country. We would see the big bus conversions and Winnebago RV’s on the interstates and we both said, “one day that will be us”. We started dreaming in earnest in 2003, a year before my job was out sourced. We went to shows and visited dealerships just to see if we could really do this. We could. We took the plunge two years later after we sold our house in Florida and bought “The Dream Machine”, our 2004 Fleetwood Expedition diesel motor home. Since then we have travelled through the states we used to fly over and discovered a unique and awesomely beautiful land that pictures do not give justice to. We have been volunteers, workampers, podcasters, and now authors. I hope you enjoy our book; and if you see us on the road, honk and wave.
