What could possibly be better than being able to travel year-round and still make a living? With more and more companies creating remote positions and freelance work seeing an increase, this dream isn’t as far off as it sounds. As long as you have internet, you’ll be good to go! If your company doesn’t have space for a freelancer, if your looking to make your business more remote, or eager to start something new, you might not know where to start. So, we’ve put together a list of the top 3 ways to make money from the road!
Document your travel
What better way to make money than to document your travel? While there are a lot of travel blogs out there, there’s something extremely unique about RVing full-time. Writing travel blogs, diving into travel photography, or perfecting your videography is a great way to make a little income. There are plenty of travel websites that you can write for or ghostwrite for. They typically start around $50 a blog which isn’t too much but it’s definitely a great start until you build up your own blog and experience.
Work a seasonal job
Did you know that there are often a lot of seasonal jobs at campgrounds or resorts? Some of the jobs include management, chefs, maintenance technician, reservation specialists, and guest services. These jobs are ideal for anyone that loves a destination enough to stay for an extended period of time. You can find the jobs everywhere around the US and because they are only seasonal, it’s nothing full-time. It’s just enough to keep money in your pockets that’ll allow you to continue to see the world.
Turn your hobby into a career
This sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? But it doesn’t have to be. Because of the internet, every job is turning to remote positions. Do you love graphic design? There are so many companies out there who need a graphic designer and are willing to pay freelancers a good chunk of money because it’s cheaper than an agency. What about social media management, law practices, business consulting, customer service, or sales? All of these things can be done from anywhere in the world. Some of the biggest online industries include:
Social media management
These careers are just a few that allow you to do what you really love, travel. RVing full-time is not only many people’s dream but it is more attainable now than ever before. Before quitting your job to go, talk to management and see if you can take your job on the road. If you’re looking for a completely new change of scenery, quit that job and do what makes you happy. There are a ton of career opportunities these days that will let you fulfill your dream of seeing the world from your RV.

While she used to enjoy tenting in the wilderness, she prefers to camp in an RV now—whether it is a Class C or a teardrop trailer—to enjoy a little comfort after a long day outdoors and the ease of travel it provides. Her goal is to hike in all of the national parks in North America.
