While we are working to understand Why you want to begin Workamping, we are going to start incorporating a few fundamental elements you will need to consider.
Over the coming four days the Workamper Dreamers will be sharing input from Jaime Hall Bruzenak, a very experienced Workamper and author of “Support Your RV Lifestyle,” a must read for anyone considering the Workamper Lifestyle. Jaimie also has taught Workamping 101: Getting Your First Workamper Job, which is now available on CD in the Workamper News Store.

What Type of RV is Best For Working Or Volunteering on the Road?
By Jaimie Hall Bruzenak
This is a great question, but what type of RV to purchase, unfortunately, has no clear-cut answer. It is partly a matter of preference and partly dependent on the type and amount of RVing you plan to do.
Full-time or part-time RVer?
First of all, if you will be living in your RV full-time, you want to choose a rig designed for full-timing. Generally you are looking at Class A motorhomes and 5th wheel trailers. You want the storage space and especially need to have your tanks enclosed so your water doesn’t freeze. The better constructed units have more insulation and storage space.
If you have a homebase and will be traveling to a place to work or volunteer in temperatures that stay mostly above freezing, one of the other types-Class B vans, Class C motorhomes, truck campers- could do. Some mountain locations, though, even in summer can get cold near the beginning or end of the season.
