It is becoming easier every year to work from home. More and more opportunities arise each year to work remotely as businesses offer jobs away from their offices. This means you can work comfortably from your own home or if you have always dreamed of living on the road in an RV, you can now earn while you travel.
So as long as you have a computer, there are numerous ways to earn money while living on the road. Some of the best ways you can earn money for your travel and adventures include:
Blogging: Everyone wants to be an influencer today… It is still an option! If you are an expert about something or very passionate, you can start a profitable blog. There are a number of free online courses teaching you how to make your blog profitable. You already have the passion and the information, now you just need to start making money from it.
Freelance writing: There are hundreds of websites that hire freelance writers to create copy, write posts and blogs, and even edit. Websites are always looking for content writers and this is a job that can be done from any location. Most companies or sites will require you to submit a sample piece of writing before you are hired. Once hired, you can typically select topics or projects based on your interests and then write according to the project specifications.
Virtual assistant: There are bloggers and online companies that lock for virtual assistants to help with their daily tasks and organization. As a virtual assistant you do all the same things an assistant in an office would do from writing emails, managing appointments and phone calls, scheduling meetings, managing social media accounts, and creating graphics. The difference is that you get to do this from any location of your choosing.
Transcriber: Transcription writing has become one of the top-rated ways to make money remotely. As long as you don’t mind typing for periods of time, then this could be the gig for you. Typically there are legal and general transcription services and you work on your own schedule, picking up jobs when you have the time. These jobs are ideal when the weather makes a change and keeps you indoors.
Tutoring: Offering tutoring services is ideal if you find yourself parked near a city or large town for a while. If you specifically have a knack for languages, math, writing, or science, these are the subjects most people need tutors for. Post an ad on the local Craigslist and anytime you are in the area, you can hang around for a few days making money by helping others.
Test websites: User Testing is a popular and easy way to generate some extra cash when you live on the road. All you need to do is test how user-friendly websites are by recording software on your computer. A program takes you through the websites and then records your reactions and responses. The tests take less than ten minutes and you can get $10 for every completed one. Another great way to spend rainy afternoons when you’re stuck inside.
Manage properties: AirBnB is one of the most popular travel and hospitality services on the internet. A lot of the homeowners do not want to spend their time managing their properties, so look for people to do this for them. It seems like an odd job, but it is real. You just need to spend some time reaching out to Airbnb homeowners to find out if they are looking for any management assistance for their properties.
Offer a trade: Are you a carpenter, woodworker, electrician, or another skilled tradesman? Share these skills with others and make money too. On the road, you will come across people in need of such services and you can offer your trade expertise and people will pay for it too. Through social media or even setting up your own website, you can advertise your skills, listing the areas where you are located, so people in need can reach out. Think of the opportunities of being mobile and having a special skill that is hard to come by.
Work in an RV park: There are RV parks and farms that hire seasonal and temporary workers all year round. The jobs can include any position from mechanic to data analyst. If you are spending your summer or winter months in one location, then it is a good idea to grab one of these local temporary jobs to make money while you enjoy the local area. The best part is that if you travel through the same parts of the country each year, you may have a job waiting for you each time you pass through.
Working from your computer remotely from any location sounds like a dream come true. The dream is even better when you picture working with a view of the vast mountains, plains, lakes, and oceans right outside your window. Being able to leave your job and work from the comfort of your RV gives you the best of both worlds and a chance to see as much of the world as you want.

How do you handle your mail situation if you are going to move to more than one place during the year? Do you have USPS send your mail for a fee every week? Thanks for the help!
You can sign up to a mail-forwarding service, Escapees have one for example. Or just ask family members or friends to use their address and forward your mails. I personally base myself in LA where I spend some time and I use a friend’s address.
