RV Community & the Coronavirus

We are living in a challenging time.  There’s a full range of opinions and feelings scattered throughout the RV community. In social media channels, it appears the majority are hopeful, and that’s where Workamper News resides as well.

We’re all hopeful for a turnaround and successful summer Workamping season, even if it begins a bit later than expected.  We hope you are all staying put as best you can for now, and following the guidelines set forth by the CDC and your local health officials.

Don’t let fear overtake you. Stay abreast with what’s happening by reviewing content published by the industry. Communicate with your current or future Employer.  Employers – let your Workampers know what’s going on even if it’s just “we’re waiting to see how it goes.”

Here are some links we’ve compiled we hope will assist you and our community:

Take action to help the community and fellow RVers.

We need RV parks and campgrounds to stay open – not to encourage travel, but – so RVers can continue to shelter in place and stay in their homes on wheels. Please take a look at the following article that Escapees RV Club has compiled here.  It includes guidance on how to contact your elected officials and sample letters to send them.

You can help by signing this petition from Truck Camper to keep RV campgrounds open
