Ever feel like the only thing holding you back from hitting the road full time is the whole job thing? Ever wonder how people who aren’t retired can get away with living in an RV full time? Here are a few great job options that will make this dream a reality!
Many traveling nurses live in RVs. Travel nursing is a program that allows nurses to work out of hospitals all over the country for 3-4 months at a time. It provides a way for nurses to see the country while also finding work. As with most nursing professions, nurses work 3-4 12 hour shifts a week and have the remaining days off. Imagine living near a ski resort and playing on your off days, or living near a beach and soaking up the sun on your off days. Work hard and play hard with this job!
Virtually every company that exists needs some sort of writing. As we venture farther into the digital age, more and more companies are starting to build an online presence through blogs, webinars, and other digital publication forums. Opportunities are wide spread– writing anything from blog posts, to product reviews, to technical writing, to grant proposals. There is no shortage of writing opportunities, and if you have a computer and wifi, you can do this job from literally anywhere.

With online shops like Etsy, it’s never been easier to open your own business. If you have something worth selling, upload your work onto Etsy and start selling! There’s likely a post office relatively nearby wherever you would be going, and if you can make your product from the RV, what’s holding you back?
Many campsites and RV brands are looking for people to review their products and establishments. Look for opportunities to write reviews for different campgrounds, restaurants, RV products and more. Look into writing for different RV conglomerates like the Route 66 Network. There is plenty of opportunity to get paid to travel and write about your experiences.
Nearly every company has some sort of sales team that involves employees making calls to market their product. If you have a phone, this can be done from home. Look for companies that allow you to make calls remotely or have a quota of calls you need to make. This will allow you to do your work and then play in your spare time!
This would be an ideal situation. If you can get wedding gigs, you could travel to shoot the wedding on the weekends, and then edit the photos all week from the RV. Again, if you have a computer and the editing software, you could do this job from virtually anywhere. Weddings aren’t your thing? See if any of the campgrounds would be willing to let you photograph their facilities and trails. If you build a portfolio, you won’t have trouble finding business.
