Hello everyone,
I'm wondering about starting out full time workamping.
54 year old, single male.
I don't have any debt, but would have an RV payment, insurance and living expenses.
Would it be possible to find workamping gigs that pay enough to live on?
I know most situations offer free site & hookups. But I would need enough on top of that.

Thank you for any wisdom, Rick


:mrgreen: I believe others will say the same! It will be a lot tougher as getting income to meet the RV Payment and Collision Insurance will make it very difficult! If it were just living expenses and regular insurance, Id say it's doable. I did it with a paid for Cl-C, comprehensive ins. but lived very frugally as most jobs are seasonally, 8-10 months work from traveling in between jobs. Also be prepared to maybe earn between minimum to maybe $8.00 an hr.
Sorry to burst your balloon! There is much information in the search box at the Top! Irishrover

It is going to be more difficult to find positions that pay for hours worked in the winter months. I know people who work for pay in summer, then do the sugar beet, then Amazon. I believe you will be working all the time just to make ends meet. One thing people don't talk about are the expenses that come up with things that get worn out and break on your RV no matter what kind you have and the cost of getting to your workamping position. It is always a good idea to have a cash reserve to cover the issues that sooner or later will happen. This is not a cheap lifestyle and you have to plan for things that go wrong.
