Work Camper Jobs in Florida – We Need Help!

work camper jobs in florida

Winter will soon be upon us, and the migration of Northerners heading to warmer climates will begin once again. Some come with RV’s, and some are returning to their winter homes, whether they be a park model or some other type.  Lots of the RVing folks come looking for work camper jobs in Florida because there are a lot of them to be had.

 

I have already noticed the increase in work camper ads starting to appear in Workamper News.  Most of the work camping Florida opportunities are focused on RV parks looking for individuals and couples for work in housekeeping, maintenance, park hosts, activities directors, and cooks, etc.

A lot of these jobs are filled by the same folks each year.  They return to the same RV park each winter and work there in order to pay for their RV campsite.  Some just work enough to cover those costs, and others work a 32-40 hour a week schedule. It just depends on the RV park’s needs.  In any case, if you are looking to migrate for work camping in Florida, start looking now for the best choices of jobs in the places you want to go.

 

Now, work camping does not have to only be working in an RV park and trading hours for that site to be considered work camping.  As I have said in other posts, if you live in your RV, and you have a job, whether that is working from your RV running a business, or working at another location, you are work camping.

 

What About Running an RV Related Business?

 

Do you love RVing?  Would you like to know more about how to easily fix eighty percent of problems that arise in an RV, and perhaps create a business that you can operate out of your RV?  What about the tax advantages of such an idea?  Would those skills also make you more desirable to an RV park owner?

 

I took this class to do just that!  It was fantastic!  I have been living in my RV, full time, for six years and I did not know about a lot of the things Mr. Cooper taught in his five-day class.  I took the class to make myself more valuable to prospective RV park owners looking for work campers with more than just average skills.  Even though I have always work camped in maintenance positions, given my electrical and engineering background, I still wanted to broaden my Workamper resume.

Then the light bulb in my head lit up!  Do you mean I can take this knowledge and help make people’s RV experience even better?  Would I be able to offer folks a way to know that the RV they are buying is as the seller claims it to be?  Would I want to be an RV Inspector?

 

Then I heard there was going to be a huge need in Florida for RV inspectors! This is being launched in Florida first.  It is launching nationally, but given Florida is the number one RV sales state, focus definitely needs to begin there.  Then I heard, “we need your help!”  I said “I am turning the key! Where do you want me to go?”

But, I had to do a few things first before I could step in an RV in order to help out a prospective buyer/seller.  I obviously had to complete my five-day class (it is also taught online but I wanted hands-on in this case), pass certification tests, be sure to have a business entity to support my new activities, insurance to cover my business, and contract with the folks that are making this all possible.

 

Why contract with a national entity to do RV Inspections?  Well, there are two options.   Someone can join the NRVIA and go out on their own, perhaps adding this service to an existing home inspection business, for example.  The marketing and customer acquisition is all up to the individual.

 

But, with RV Inspection Connection, a new inspector is joining a nationwide network that allows the inspector to use proprietary software to aid in creating professional reports, benefit from national advertising to secure quality leads, ongoing training, network with like-minded individuals who will support your new business, and be part of the premier RV inspection company in the industry!  Instead of the phrase, show me the CarFax, it will soon be show me the RV Inspection Report!

Now, why is this so much better than working in a campground for peanuts? Well, I am to young to retire, and even if I did I would be bored out of my mind!  This idea of RV inspections was one that allows me to be involved in something I love to do and make it more safe and enjoyable for others who are just starting to discover RVing.  Hey, what about the tax advantages? That’s material for another post!

 

Why safer?  Well, unless an RV has been professionally inspected by a well trained, third party, and unbiased RV inspector than you are taking your chances when purchasing an RV.  Are dealers reputable  Are sellers really disclosing all?  We would sure hope so!  Most are, but why take a chance that some unknown issue is lurking within that RV, and could cost you thousands to fix once it’s purchased and on the road!

So, we need your help!  We need hundreds of RV inspectors in the state of Florida alone.  As this grows, and it will quite quickly, we need folks to jump on board and join us in our mission of offering RV inspections done right!

 

One of the best things about this is an RVer can be mobile.  They can work in Florida, and in the summer go somewhere else if they want.  Through the RV Inspection Connection’s system, Rvers can move about the country and still have work in any area they choose to visit!

 

Want to know what you can make as an RV inspector?  Drop me an email, or give me a call.  We can discuss that further!

    I am turning 65 in April, and started entertaining the idea of a RV lifestyle today after spending a significant amount of time in your website. Looking at this page I would like to see more information about job prospects throughout the US, not just in the state of Florida. With gas prices as high as they have been, I think less people are interested in purchasing RV’s.
    Also as someone looking to sign up for the coursework opportunity you offer, I would need more information along the lines of cost, time investment, statistics of profitability etc. That’s my opinion for what its worth.

    1. Howard

      Thanks for stopping by my website April! I am excited that you would consider the RV lifestyle after visiting my website! However, I would say, before jumping in you try it first. If you have never been RVing it would be a good idea to rent one and stay on the road for a month and see if you can live in a smaller space.

      RV sales are at the highest level that they have been in the past 38 years! Gas prices are down significantly, although the people that but RV’s don’t really care too much about fuel costs, at least for full timers anyway. The full time RV population is growing as more people find the benefits match the lifestyle they want to live. But, it is not for everyone. I suggest people do lots of research before jumping into being full time RVers.

      As far as an opportunity as an RV inspector and your current situation, that’s a whole other kettle of fish that you and I would need to discuss on an individual basis. I would be happy to do that if you want to drop me an email at howard@yourfulltimervliving.com with more specifics on your current situation and what you are looking for in a work camper job.

      Happy upcoming 65th!!

    Hi,
    I am living in the Netherlands and since a year i have dream to become a fulltime rv person and i think this is an absolute perfect chance to do so. But i have no engineering background or know anything about rv’ and motorhomes in general, neither do i have money to visit the states and see if this is something for me. I am only 48, no wife no kids but recently met an american woman whom i am really fond of. So she is a great point of interest to come to the states.
    I wrote earlier this week but my reply wasn’t placed.

    Hoping to read a reply from you.

    Thank you,

    Niels

    Hey Howard,

    I am interested in possibly becoming an RV Inspector and I like your nationwide concept. I have be an IT consultant for many years and do projects when I get them, however RV inspection could be something I might be able to do between projects.

    I understand the requirements and am wondering how long and approximate cost to become certified and qualify for you company?

    Thanks,

    1. Howard

      Hi Greg!

      Thanks for inquiring about the RV inspector business.

      I will respond to your questions via your email with a brochure attachment.
