Books for working on the Road
Pay for your travels by working. Lots of different types of jobs are possible from working in a campground or RV park to working in an amusement park, playing a costumed character, assisting at a NASCAR race and so many more. Volunteering can save you money as well. Federal and state agencies usually provide a free RV site to RV volunteers. You could be a camphost but you could also work in the office or visitor center, resource management, archaeology, astronomy, geology, or take photos.
Often RVers find they want to be productive and miss structure - after a while. Working and volunteering provides this as well as other benefits. Many employers provide other perks for employees as do other companies who cater to tourists. They want you to try out their tour, their attraction, their meals so you recommend them to visitors at your RV park. It's a great way to get to know an area too.
