If full-time RV life is calling your name, you may be considering selling most of your possessions, quitting your job, and hitting the road for good. While the idea of living out in the world in your rig is a beautiful one – and one that many people before you have made happen! – it’s possible that you’ll still want to have an income. Gas won’t pay for itself, after all.
Luckily, there are several ways that you can make money while you’re on the road!
Offer your goods or services on an online marketplace
Do you create beautiful gift items that your friends and family love and that you could sell to others? Are you a videographer who creates short, impactful videos for the web? Are you able to make phone calls, write emails, and run errands for another person? If so, you can lean on websites such as Etsy, eBay, Fiverr, TaskRabbit, and other online marketplaces to offer your goods and services. These sites have allowed many people with certain niche skills and abilities to make money while traveling.
Become a freelancer
If you’re a writer, you can pretty much do that from anywhere. Freelance writers are tapped to work on content for blogs, websites for businesses, and even print items. If your talents are more on the technical end of computer work, as in coding and development, or even in graphic design, you too can be a freelancer, build your base of clients, and make money while you’re traveling.
Learn how to transcribe
Offering transcription services is another way you can earn money remotely. As a transcriber, you would listen to audio recording of courtroom proceedings, business meetings, or other events, and type out the dialog that occurs during the event. You may not even need an internet connection to do the work; audio clips can often be downloaded, and you can work in a word processing document without the internet, too.
These are just a few of the many ways that you can earn money while on the road in your RV. Research what options available to you that suit your skillset and whatever you’re passionate about, and there is likely way for you to make it happen.
