Work?

There is a plethora of websites to help fulltimers look for and obtain jobs while living the rv life.  In addition to the ones listed below there are lots more, plus Amazon (big time help needed Oct-Jan, provides rv space, gives good money, overtime also).

It wouldn’t hurt to have some money sometimes.

Gas Line Leak Finding
One of our RV Jobs was working for a company called Southern Cross Corporation out of Norcross, Georgia. They hire RVers to find leaks for most of the gas companies around the country. Lots of walking – and it was fun, too. You’re basically walking neighborhoods following gas lines from the maps they give you and your equipment sniffs the area and sets off a buzzer if there is a gas leak. It was pretty easy to get hired. You can work on a seasonal basis. I think we netted a little over $5,000 a month together. It is an hourly position, plus mileage, plus per diem. They will hire a couple as a team and pay your mileage between locations. We found it very rewarding to find the gas leaks. Gas leaks can cost the gas company a lot of money and when we found the gas leaks we knew we might have helped prevent a potential disaster, or even the loss of life.

FEMA Disaster Housing Inspector
We work for PB Inspections, which is one of the two contractors in the United States that offers contract services to FEMA to complete home inspections when a disaster occurs. We worked Hurricane Ike in 2008 doing disaster inspections in Texas. It was a rewarding experience, but not for the faint of heart. You do work hard a minimum of six days a week. In many cases you are dealing with folks that have lost everything. You may even meet someone who lost a loved one due to the disaster. In many cases, you might be their first contact to bring financial aid to them. We liked the work. You must pass an extensive background check and complete all the online training. It worked out well for us as RVers and if your good you can make decent money. Hurricane Ike was our first assignment, so we were learning and very slow in the beginning. I think we made about $4,000 in three weeks. However, many pros are making a $1,000 – $1,500 a day or more. You are considered self-employed and paid on a 1099.
