RVers, find volunteer and paid work that you can do WHILE you are RVing. Many of the jobs include a FHU RV site free! Read this week's Workers On Wheels Newsletter.
Tools and repair supplies are usually the first things we put into our RVs. You never know when you are going to have a mechanical breakdown or have something go wrong in the RV that needs fixing.
The right tools and equipment can make your RV life and travels a lot easier, safer, and more fun. The following articles are about the gear and general supplies we carry in our RV -- and why.
If you need to make some money while you are RVing, you need to read the Workers On Wheels Newsletter. Workers On Wheels helps RVers find jobs and helps those needing short-term workers to find working RVers.
The "modern" RV industry celebrated it's 100th anniversary back in 2010. The start of a new year is always a good time to take another look at how the industry evolved. As you'll see when you read the article, things in RV land just keep changing!

The Port Isabel Flea Market is a fun place to stop after Sunday morning church or breakfast. The first booth we saw was a colorful display of metal lawn art. Then rocks. We ambled in to see more.
Exercising on the road…don’t get the wrong impression. I’m not a fitness guru, or a health fanatic. I’m just a regular guy, who is trying to keep ahead of old age, which is coming up on me from behind, awful quickly.
Be sure to read this week's Workers On Wheels Newsletter, the newsletter for working RVers.

Single RVers' clubs and organizations give solo RV travelers a special network. Whether the focus is on having fun at campouts or sharing RVing information, the groups form a support system.
Dollywood restaurants and food stops, oh my! Meatloaf stackers, cotton candy, fried green tomatoes, ice cream, fried chicken, caramel apples, beans and greens. Snack shacks to buffets, it's there.
Steam shows, threshing bees, engine shows, and old time power shows are some of our favorite events to attend while RVing. There are numerous old time demonstrations and farm collector shows.

Schulenburg, Texas, is often on our travel route to and from southern Texas. It's a good place to stop to eat. The Pilot travel center is a good place for RV services -- to empty tanks, and get fuels.
LED lights. What took us so long to replace the old, florescent tube lights with efficient LED fixtures in our RV? It was not knowing how much energy they would save and how much we would like them.
Lizard Creek host Bill Johns entertains with stories of what it is like to be a summer campground host in the Grand Teton National Park. He shares how he got started hosting at Lizard Creek Campground, and offers advice for RVers wanting to camp host.
RV financing stumps people. Recreational vehicle loans are available as both home loans and auto loans. A reader with poor credit asks my advice. While banks and credit unions are options, try cash.
Working RVers are a diverse group. Contrary to what some believe, not all working RVers are elderly retired couples who want to trade a few hours work each week for a campsite. That stereotype is just a myth.
Smoke wafting from barbeque cookers fills the air as we get close to Fulwood Park. The Rhythm and Ribs BBQ Festival is in high gear. Food trucks and vendor booths dot the park. Live music emanates from the stages. Meat cooking contestants have their entries well underway.
Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor
Wind farm security. Christmas tree lot manager. Oil field gate guard. Restaurant cook, dishwasher, and servers. These are among the job openings that we posted the past few days. All of them pay hourly wages for all hours worked. All of them also provide a full hook-up RV space.
Also posted this past week are RV park jobs that pay hourly wages for all hours worked and give you a FHU RV site. And, for those who prefer to trade out work for their site, we posted some of those campground jobs, too.
Over at RV Life and Travel, we have articles about using your RV in emergencies. Bob and I averted crisis last week by relocating early to our winter destination.
Free! RVers love free things to do. Concordia, Kansas, tops the list with a free campground. Then, you can get outside and be active. Play tourist. Do some shopping. Learn the history of the area.
Today's Workers On Wheels Newsletter is ready for you. This is the newsletter we put out for RVers who want (or need) to work while RVing. It includes both work for site positions and jobs that pay hourly wages. Plus, tips, resources, links to articles, etc.
Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor
Disney jobs: join the magic, receive hourly pay, discounts, and free admissions. Disney is synonymous with dreams. The Walt Disney job information websites show how you can be a part of the magic. Cast members working for the mouse serve and entertain guests 24 hours a day.
No, Bob and I aren’t working at Disneyland, Disney World, or one of the other Disney properties.
I’m sharing this info because we keep hearing false rumblings that Disney no longer hires working RVers. Those rumors simply are not true.
Bob and I celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary this week. We've been on the road as full-time RVers much of that time. Our work has been unique, fun, and educational. Bob’s worked for a tourist steam train restoring a 1928 Baldwin 2-6-6-2T articulated Mallet locomotive -- it is the only 2-6-6-2T Mallet in service in the world.
Thump, thump, thump ... you feel their tail pushing them, you feel the sheer power of the big flat fish running. That is how Bob explained his day of halibut fishing to me.
Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor
Fishermen, you are in luck! We have a brainstorming exercise that everyone can do to find work related to personal interests. However, we used fishing in the example. So, if you are a fisherman, you'll find some of it has already been done for you.
Electricity costs for campground owners are constantly rising. It is not unusual to find that they are installing individual electric meters at each site. There are ways you can keep your costs down.
Keeping your RV neat and tidy can be a challenge. Especially if you are a shopper. Especially if having a place for everything and putting everything in its place is a foreign concept to you.
Coleen recommends a SD mail forwarding service, specifically the Rapid City UPS Store.
RV boondocking means using the utilities on board the RV, rather than relying on electric, water, sewer, and telephone hook-ups. Boondocking is a good thing, using the RV's self-contained systems.
Today's Workers On Wheels Newsletter answers the question, "Are there any jobs out there for working campers like me?" Plus, the usual tips, resources, and info on where to find current job openings.
