What would it take for a person today to head out on the road and never work again? Well if you have some type of paycheck coming in such as a Retirement, Social Security, or Disability check, etc. or some type of savings, then you can do this very easily.
For others, it is possible to get on the road and make a living. You can live cheap and invent ways to make money on the road.
There is a BIG CHANCE that you can use your own skills, talents, and passions and get paid for it. Remember, everyone has some type of skill or talent, which is of value to others, so prepare to use your skills, talents, and passions on the road.
There are all types of jobs on the road and as a business owner, you can create services and products on the road. Don’t wait until your current situation gets so serious that you won’t be in a position to set yourself up on the road in a car, van or RV.
Make your vehicle work for you on the road or think about trading it for an SUV, mini-van, cargo van, camper van, bus, boat, RV, etc. You can work on the road on a phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop in a car, van, RV, bus, boat, and do the same type of job or the same type of work you do now. Or you can finally use the other skills that you have been dying to use in this lifetime.
Just some of the jobs or businesses you can set up on the road include:
- Join Escapees.com: The popular mail forwarding services for RVers out of Livington, TX, Escapees.com, has a list of jobs at www.RVerJobExchange.com.
- Sell on Amazon: You can sell products on Amazon.com. Many Amazon employees work for 3 months around the holidays and make enough money to live off of and travel the rest of the year. Some of these Amazon jobs are called ‘Camperforce’ jobs and like many of the camp host jobs, will also help pay your fees at RV parks.
- Sell Products on eBay: Ever since eBay.com appeared on the scene, people have been purchasing items and reselling them online for a profit. Some people shop at thrift stores to find rare or collectible items, while others shop box stores for steep discounts on brand new products. Doing this doesn’t require any special skills, just patience and a bit of luck.
- Make Money Writing: There are several ways to make money writing. Some people choose to write and sell ebooks, paperback, and audiobooks. You can become a Speaker and get out here on the road and teach in seminars, workshops, and webinars. You can help people put together resumes and cover letters, or even keep it super simple by doing transcription work. The sky is the limit for anyone with great writing skills.
- Make Money as A Blogger: You can write blog posts for others or monetize your own blogs using advertisements, sponsors, and affiliate links.
- Counseling/Consulting: Many just use the internet and do jobs like counseling or consulting on skype. They do bookkeeping on skype and train others in webinars.
- Market Yourself on YouTube.com: Many Car and Van Dwellers and especially RVers, even the ones living off the grid, have their own YouTube.com channels. Once you get over 1,000 subscribers on youtube.com, you can start getting paid for your videos on YouTube.com.
- Start A Patreon.com Page: Patreon is a crowdfunding site, which is similar to a subscription service. Provide ‘great content’ and get a group of supporters and have them support your content.
- Become a Traveling Nurse or Contractor: Many traveling nurses and contractors live in Vans or RVs on the road. Others that are Doctors, Speakers, etc. travel around the country all the time in cars, vans or RVs.
- Caregiver Jobs: With a large Senior population today, there are plenty of caregiver jobs out there where you can also use their driveway to stealth camp in a car or van. Check out care.com and caregiver.org.
- RV Transporting: There is a big need for RV transporters to deliver RVs to dealerships and back to buyers after being sent back to factories and repaired. To drive the bigger RVs, you will probably be required to get a CDL license, but not for the smaller RVs.
- RV Inspectors: There are many skills needed to assist these Car, Van or Bus Dwellers, RVers and the Tiny House Movement such as carpenters, electricians, RV repairmen, RV inspectors, cell phone and internet installers, solar installers, etc.
- Jobs with RV Parks: If you have great skills, many of the RV parks will hire you and give you FREE RV parking for days, weeks and/or months as long as you work with them. These include skills such as using drones, building websites, and marketing their RV parks. So offer up your services and products at these RV parks. Many are building new RV parks today because of the demand to go Full-Time RVing.
- Become a Work Camp Host: Just remember that some of these RV parks are desperate for work camp hosts to help them monitor gates, sign in guests visiting in cars, vans, and RVs. Some of the jobs are remote for those who enjoy getting off the grid. Many work camp hosts can park their RVs for FREE and work for 2, 3 or up to 6 months at an RV park. At many of these jobs, you only work for 3 days a week and for only 5 hours. Check out the below jobs if you plan on coming out here on the road:
- California Land Management (CLM) Services: There are jobs available every year around May at CLM Services in the California, Washington, Oregon, and Colorado area. Places like Yellow Stone Park even have housing for their employees.
- Gate Jobs: Singles and couples can get a job as a gate guard and find a gig and earn $100–$175 a day in the state of Texas. They will give you a generator, water, and pump out your sewer in the desert. Usually, a 30-90 day commitment is required and these gigs don’t want kids around and prefer couples instead of singles. You only work for 2 hours a day.
