The vast majority of people who work either work from home or from an office or business in town. The simple fact is that there are, statistically speaking, few people who work full time from the road (such as while traveling in a recreational victory).
Nonetheless, it is still estimated that over five hundred thousand people in the U.S live and work from an RV fulltime. That may be a small percentage of people in the country overall, but it’s still an impressive figure on its own.
This isn’t limited to just singles or couples. There are entire families who live in their RVs and make a living full time while traveling the country too.
Here are the top advantages to working on the road from your RV:
You Have The Freedom To Go Wherever You Want
This is the first and most obvious benefit to traveling in an RV full time: you get to explore the country, and there are virtually no limits on the different places that you can visit. If sightseeing the cool and legendary destinations across North America is something you’ve always wanted to do, you may never get the chance to do so again.
You Set Your Own Hours To Work
One of the benefits of not just working from the road but working online in general is that you get to set your own hours. Rather than going to work at nine and coming back home at five, you can work very early in the morning, late into the night, sporadically throughout the day, or whatever you feel like doing.
RV’s may be expensive, but if it’s your only residence, then it’s still cheaper in comparison to living in a house. Used RV’s in good condition can be easily acquired for less than ten grand, and there are an abundance of locations across the United States with free or cheap camping and parking.
You’ll still have to pay for insurance, taxes, campground fees, RV maintenance, and food and all that, but overall you’ll likely be paying less in comparison to living in a house.
You Can Build Your Reputation Across The Country
Finally, traveling in an RV full time means that you get to tour across the United States and Canada, and build your name and brand recognition wherever you go.
This is easily one of the easiest forms of marketing there is, especially if you have your brand name painted on the side of your RV and you hand out lots of business cards at each stop you make. There’s no better advertising than the kind that’s done in person.
Working On The Road
These are just a few of the many benefits to working from the road in your RV. It’s important that you fully understand these benefits if you are on the fence about whether working from your RV full time is the right course of action for you.
