How Do You Make Extra Money on the Road?

Every Friday in the Facebook groups, we post #SocialShareFriday – this is where all members can post their business links in the comments. It’s a one stop shop and a great way for RVers to support each other out there on the road.

Today, we want to share with you just a little of what others are doing to help support their Workamping lifestyle. The majority of these fine folks are also Workamping in parks, harvests, amusement parks, as shuttle bus drivers, field reps, tour guides, Christmas tree and Pumpkin lot managers, and a variety of others – and they find those on Workamper News.

But, since Workamping is not always a fulltime job or you just want another stream of income, here are a few ways these awesome Workampers are living their dream –


One of the most popular ways people can make a few bucks is writing a blog. This doesn’t come easy and doesn’t pay a whole lot but writing enthusiasts are pretty great at it. Most RVers are super helpful to each other and want each other to succeed in the lifestyle.

Heart, Mind, and Soul Lifestyle is a newer blog by Melody Abbee. She loves the RV lifestyle and traveling all over. She writes about her adventures and faith.

Live. Work. Dream. is another great blog. This couple focuses on the full-time RVing lifestyle and has some great ideas on how to make extra money on the road.

Selling Handmade Items

Other ways people make some extra money is by selling their handmade items.

SewWriteCreations is an embroidery and personalization business by Dick Callender. Some of his work includes kitchen towels, bath towels, wedding presents, t shirt quilts, pillow shams, bowl cozies, handbags, you name it. They are traveling at this time but will be opening the shop back up next week, as soon as they settle in for the winter.
