What do you do for income to travel fulltime?

You know you want to travel in your RV fulltime but you don’t know what to do for income, right? This question gets asked multiple times per day in the fulltime RVing groups and forums that I follow. Inevitably they get overrun by multilevel marketing (MLM) companies and other “network marketing” jobs. I’ll talk about those at the bottom of this list.

For legitimate places to look for remote work:

Specific RV-friendly jobs include:

  • Amazon – selling products on Amazon
  • Construction – traveling to different gigs or working an expensive area for a portion of the year, saving, and exploring the rest of the year
  • Day Trading – stocks & cryptocurrency
  • Gig Apps – Instacart, Door Dash, Uber Eats, etc.)
  • Flipping Furniture – finding it cheap, maybe refinishing it, and reselling it
  • Graphic Design
  • Health Insurance advisor
  • House Rentals – long term & short-term via AirBnB
  • Insurance Appraiser
  • IT Professional
    • Business analyst
    • Network analyst
    • Program manager
    • Software developers
    • Security analyst
  • Medical coding/billing
  • Medicare Sales Agent
  • Mortgage Processor
  • Remotask
  • RV Inspector

Cautions About MLM Companies

First, yes people do make money at these types of jobs but the statistics aren’t in your favor. If you search for “{MLM Company Name} Income Disclosure Statement”, you’ll find that those who publish these end up showing abysmal results. It’s generally less than 2-3% of people make an actual income-level replacement of gross income/sales. They don’t get into the personal profit side of things. The folks who “retired” from their corporate jobs is well less than 1%. I won’t say I am anti-MLM, but definitely go into it with your eyes wide open.

Influencers and Making Money at YouTube/Social Media

Being an “influencer” and making money at YouTube or other social media is definitely possible but it’s a super crowded field. It’s not something that is going to make you a lot of money right away and is one of the long haul types of things. And it’s a lot like the MLM statistics – a few make money but most don’t. (Note, OnlyFans falls into this; their top 10% of earners make $1,000 per month and top 4% make more than $3,000 per month.)

Note: this isn’t a recommendation for any particular company or job offer. Do what you will with it. Vet every opportunity and do your own due diligence.
