Workamping is a combination of the words “work” and “camping”. It is when travelling individuals, couples or families combine any kind of part-time or full-time work with RV camping. 

Here are some links to sites that can tell you all about how to go about financing your adventure this way: what to do, what not to do, where to go, where not to go etc etc.

Bob Wells was tired of living the rat race and a life filled with hyper-consumerism–always buying things looking for contentment, but never finding it. Instead, he returned to the original, truly human roots of tribal nomadism. He adopted a life of travel and adventure by living in a vehicle like a car, van or RV and living a life of simplicity and minimalism. He has been doing this for over 14 years and thrives on the freedom and peace that it brings him.

Have a look at his incredible website to be intrigued and inspired to follow your dreams and take steps towards joining the nomadic tribe! Here is an article about workamping…

Jim and Rene sold their home and nearly everything they owned in 2007 to travel the country with their dog Jerry, who lost a leg to cancer. Today they continue to travel full-time with their three-legged German Shepherd Wyatt Ray, while managing Tripawds – the largest online community for amputee pets and their people – from their mobile headquarters and jewelry studio.

In 2005, Howard & Linda Payne quit their corporate jobs, sold their house at age 41, and started a life on the road in an RV for an indefinite period, as they felt there was more to life than what traditional society expected.  They started, where Howard took the mounds of research he’d done and compiled it into one place for others considering full-time RVing.  They opened up their lives and posted their journey, their triumphs and mistakes, and their financial information for a more complete, honest look at full-time RVing. 

Howard and Linda also worked a variety of jobs on the road to support their lifestyle.  Their diversity of experiences, age, and background combine to create an interesting perspective on RV living. Enjoy this fantastic guide to Workamping.
