How to Enjoy the RV Lifestyle Now - By Workamping!

 By Jody Anderson Duquette, Workamper News Editor

Burned out from the daily grind and ready to hit the road now?  Is retirement approaching and you’re looking for something to do other than just stare at the camp fire?  Consider Workamping! Over 28 years ago, Workamper News Inc. coined the term Workamper and defined it as “adventuresome individuals, couples and families who have chosen a wonderful lifestyle that combines ANY kind of part-time or full-time work with RV camping.”

Since our focus is about educating people on the Workamping lifestyle and helping them live it successfully, we encounter many RVers when they are just starting out.  The age of Workampers today ranges from teenagers living fulltime in an RV with their family, to hearty seniors in their 80’s – and everything in-between.  One of my favorite Workampers bought herself a truck, an Airstream trailer, and began her Workamping adventures at the age of 72!

Workamping jobs can be short-term or long-term, so you can be a part-time RVer (who goes back to another residence for part of the year) or a full-time RVer.  It is up to each individual to decide what his/her financial needs are, how often he/she wants to travel, and what places he/she would like to see. These are factors you need to decide on before embarking on finding your first Workamping opportunity.

The majority of Workamping jobs deal with the outdoor hospitality industry, but as you review the job listings at Workamper.com and read through the many articles about different Workamping experiences, you’ll begin to see the huge variety of options and industries that Workampers can be a part of.

Although it may feel more like a vacation, at the root Workamping is still…work.  Businesses hire Workampers intending that they will be a beneficial part of their staff, fulfill the position as it was defined, and - in some cases with limited-budget entities - help keep the doors open.  The benefits of Workamping are more than just financial – you will discover a diverse and welcoming community, get to experience places and things you haven’t even imagined, and continue to learn and feel useful.
