|You can make money while traveling full-time in your RV|
One of the big things a full-time RVer is looking into is having money once they are on the road. For many that means they have a company retirement benefit, plus military retirement, plus social security plus an IRA account plus stock portfolio plus they just sold there California beach house for $1.2 million. If this does not describe you and your situation, you need to continue reading this page.
Some who are ready to go full-timing are on a strict budget. Maybe they only have social security to depend on. How can someone full-time in an RV with a limited income or only Social Security. Many do and that is all they have. They spend a lot of time in one place and are very strict on their spending.
This page will only touch on ways of earning an income on the internet. It will touch on physical jobs and more. For more details on these techniques of generating money on the road, check out these additional pages.
Personally, I do not want to be all that dependent on the government for my full timing income. So what are some of the answers to making money while full-timing in an RV. Can you make a living or make enough money to live better on the road.
One answer is to become a camp host or work at a campground part of the year. Some work six months at campgrounds so they can travel six months and then go back to working at a campground. This is called, "workamping". Pay can range from a site to camp with free hookups to a full salary that is far above minimum wage.
Some people make things to sell on the road. Whirligigs that hang from awnings and twirl in the wind. Afghans and crochet work. Some people paint beautiful pictures. If you are an artist in paints, yarn, material, wood or any medium it is possible you can sell your creations on the road.
Have you ever seen a motorhome pulling a trailer along behind it? Often that trailer contains the business of the RV owner. They either buy inventory or make inventory and the trailer stores their inventory, materials and even their workshop. Some of these people have a regular circuit around the country. They travel from swapmeet to swapmeet. Some go from one western memorabilia and gun show to the next and then the next similar show. Others are into HAM radio and travel from HAMfest or HAM swapmeet to HAMfest. Selling a product on the road is a very viable alternative income.
My personal favorite is making money on the internet. This can require you to carry inventory or know how to create income from websites you create.
If you are full-timing in an RV you cannot have a lot of inventory you carry unless you have a trailer. With that in mind your ideal inventory would be small items that are easily stored or e-items (electronic items) that are stored on your computer. An example would be a lawn mower repair manual you have written on your computer and sell online as an e-book.
For physical inventory I would recommend selling on Ebay. How much you make is only dependent on how often you sell and how successful the item you sell is. Testing the Ebay market is the best way to do that. You could easily make $50 to $500 a month selling on Ebay. You could do this even if you have limited inventory space.

Creating pages on the internet with advertising on them is another way to generate income on the internet. You can have businesses who pay you anytime some one comes from your site to theirs and buys a product. You can also have ads on your page that you get paid every time someone clicks on an ad.
Internet advertising income does not require any inventory. Your inventory is in you mind. It is the pages of internet content your create about a subject you know about or can learn about. This income usually, but not always takes a while to develop. It takes a couple months to actually get recognized on the internet and then time to make money. However you could be making $50 to $1000 a month in the next six months without too much trouble. Read the FREE e-book here Free Internet Income E-Book. about making money online. It is a full instruction manual. It is free and tells you everything you need to know. You say you know nothing about websites or adverting. This free books understands that and is written just for you whether you know about creating web pages or not.
Some people travel "semi full-time" by going from location to location and working at a normal 9 to 5 job. One job that lends itself to this is nursing. There is usually a high demand for qualified nurses almost anywhere in the country. Any job would work. Mechanic, secretary, or ditch digger. You work as long as it takes to make you travel income. You live in your RV in the city you choose. Usually this type of job hopping means you stay in one place 3 to 6 months.
