Working From Your RV: Step One–Building an RV Office

If you are an RV owner, finding a way to balance relaxation time with work time is actually much easier than you may realize. One of the beauties of owning an RV is the ability to have a mobile office AND enjoy a  good ol’ American road trip Constructing a home office in your RV is the means for accomplishing such a task and believe it or not, is a very real possibility with a little creativity and elbow grease. Not only that, but you can also build an office which is comfortable as well as functional. Where Do I Start? It depends. For those individuals looking to do a little casual office work while traveling, a simple recliner and lap tray for your computer can go a long way. However, if you’re the type of traveler looking to build an actual dedicated home office, here are a few tips I’ve found after spending countless hours scouring RV forums. -          A majority of RVs usually come with some sort of dining table.

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie:  “How to Earn Money RVing:  Chapter 3: Retool, Retrain, Reinvent Yourself”

  Maybe you’ve read articles about ways to earn money while RVing and thought, “Easy for her to say she can do that job from her RV; she has a degree.”  Or perhaps you thought, “Yeah, I could do that job from my RV, too, if I had his skills.”  Does this inner dialogue reflect your thinking? If so, may I be blunt? I have found working from an RV requires a positive attitude and a commitment to doing what it takes: maybe retooling, retraining, or reinventing yourself. It’s work, not magic. For instance, let’s say you want to write for publication but grocery lists top your writing experience. So what?  Just because you’ve never written articles or blogs or books, does that mean you can’t write? Of course not! Consider taking an online writing course. Read any of a million great “How to Write” books. Study the hundreds of free writing tips on the internet.

Patti’s Saga of An RV Rookie:  “How to Earn Money RVing:  Chapter 2: “Doing it Off-Line.”

You know who you are. You hate the internet, or would, if you knew enough about it. You’ve always thought “online” referred to wet clothes in the backyard and that an “attachment” is a connection with another person (true, but it means something else in the techno world). It’s ok. You’re not alone. According to a recent Pew Foundation study, 21% of all American adults agree with you. http://techcrunch.com/2010/08/11/pew-fifth-adults-internet/ That’s right. One-fifth,  just like you, avoid the internet. You’re only reading this blog because your techno-geek spouse or friend printed it out for you… because you for sure the heck aren’t getting on the internet! So does having zero interest in the internet mean you can’t earn money from your RV? Or lessen your value as a human being? Or that you’re not quite right in the head? Of course not! Earning money from an RV without the internet may be more challenging, but the work exists. Consider: What skills do you have? ... [Read more...]
