Welcome to RVing.Jobs!
RVing.Jobs was created by full-time RV’ers Sean and Adriana Hakes a month after departing for their full-time journey.
Sean is an aspiring entrepreneur who enjoys finding solutions to broken systems and needs. Adriana is a talented published journalist and a former school teacher specializing in children with non-verbal learning disabilities.
How we got started…
Sean and Adriana first planned to go full time in 2012. They traded in their smaller 24′ Aerolite travel trailer for a 37′ Kodiak 300bhsl bunkhouse. Everything was planned out until life happened.
Over the years, the couple has spent a lot of time on various RV forums, which all had similar themes. Whether an aspiring full-time RV’er or a current full-time RV’er, everyone wanted to know how to make money on the road. The most common way we found that people make money on the road is through workamping. Workamping is a way for RV’ers to get discounted or free rent and sometimes compensation in exchange for work. Typical work might be groundskeeping, being a camp host, cleaning the bathrooms, being a lifeguard, etc. Unfortunately, not all workamping gigs are not alike, and we’ve seen a lot of campgrounds take advantage of those in need by trading out a $50/mo space for 20-30 hours of work per month and no additional compensation. This is one of the many reasons that many workampers live at or below poverty in the United States.
This is why RVing.Jobs was born…
There shouldn’t be any reason why a campground would trade 20-30+ hours plus per week for for a $50/day campsite. Even if the campsite was $200/day it still wouldn’t make sense. This is simply a campground taking advantage of someone’s situation. At RVing.Jobs we’re going to do things much differently and we’re going to open up the marketplace for freelancers and contractors to easily find work as well, one campground at a time.
