Several of our fellow campground hosts, including our Warm River maintenance couple, are full time RVers. They have sold their homes and most of their belongings in favor of traveling across the country in their respective motor homes, trailers, and fifth-wheels.
All of our full-time RVing coworkers travel to places they are interested in spending time in, and find jobs that, at best, offer a free place to park, free utilities, and a salary. Campground hosting is ideal for full-time RVers, but there are other opportunities as well, often in the resort areas they want to visit. Paying jobs are rare in the winter in warmer climates, such as Arizona, but even in Arizona one can obtain a free parking spot with utilities in exchange for a minimal number of hours of work.

There are logistical concerns with full time RVing. How do they get their mail? What about prescriptions? Doctor visits? No problem. They find the nearest town, rent a post office box, and have their doctors call their prescriptions in to the local pharmacy or clinic. All of the couples we’ve met agree that laundry is their biggest problem, but that a weekly trip to the coin-op Laundromat is a small price to pay.
“It’s really quite freeing to realize how little you need to be happy,” one of the women told me.
