Top 5 Business Ideas For Working Out Of An RV

by Susan Melony


While there are thousands of people each year who would like to live out of an RV, many of them don’t for the simple reason that they don’t believe it’s possible to make a living working out of a motorhome, or at least to not make the same amount of money as they would working their current job.


But guess what? Thousands of people also do live and work full-time out of their RVs and still make the same income as they would otherwise. All you need is the right equipment for whatever your job is and a reliable internet connection, and you should be set.


So don’t let this discourage you from renting or buying an RV and living the RV lifestyle that you’ve always dreamed about. has entire lists of RV’s to rent or buy for any area that you type in, so once you find an RV you like and buy it, there’s really nothing to stop you from making your dream of living the RV life a reality.  


If you’re still not convinced that you can make a living while on the road, here are the top five business ideas for working out of an RV:


Virtual Assistant


Working as a virtual assistant essentially means that you’ll be doing similar work to an office secretary, only thousands of miles away on your computer. You’ll be doing copywriting, composing emails, making phone calls, and writing up invoices to name a few things. While you have to make sure you’re fully accessible during business hours, with only a handful of clients you can make some good money.


WordPress Support


There are nearly eighty million websites powered by WordPress, and it only stands to reason that at least a percentage of those websites will need assistance to run efficiently. If you’re a tech-savvy person who knows how to run WordPress websites, then running a WordPress website support business is definitely something you could do from the comfort of your motorhome.


Amazon FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) Business


You may have expected to see this on this list because Amazon is known for being very friendly to RV entrepreneurs and even having a ‘Camper Force’ for seasonal employees living in RVs.


An Amazon FBA business means that you can purchase products from a third-party, put your brand on those products, and then Amazon will store and then ship them for you when somebody purchases them from your blog or website.


An FBA business stands a very good chance of making you some serious money, so it’s definitely not a business idea that you want to overlook.


Content Strategist


Working as a content strategist essentially means that you’ll be a blogger and social media marketer for companies. You’ll be responsible for any of the following:


  • Assembling a team of freelancers, assigning work, and keeping them on schedule
  • Writing and scheduling media posts
  • Writing and publishing blog posts
  • Creating a content schedule to grow your client’s online presence


Content strategists can make thousands of dollars a month, and the more clients you have, the more money you make.




Last but not least, working as a photographer out of your RV gives you the advantage of being able to travel throughout parts of the country to reach other clients you otherwise would not have been able to. Think of it as essentially taking your existing photography business on the road.


If anything, your business could stand to grow from doing this. You’ll be able to meet your clients at beautiful natural parks and other scenic locations for photography sessions and word-of-mouth could spread about your business as well.


Working Out Of Your RV


These are just five of the many different business ideas for working out of your RV. Additional things that you can do working out of your RV include freelance writing, Kindle publishing, graphic design, video production, or even running a YouTube channel.


There are thousands of people who make a living full-time out of their RVs, so there’s no reason to think that you can’t as well.


Regardless of whether you’re planning on living out of your RV full-time or just going on an extended road trip, you’ll still be able to work and make the same amount of money as you would from working in your home or town.

    Hi Susan,

    I like your post because it offers terrific insight on business ideas that one can possibly execute while living in your RV. In fact, the good thing is that once you have an internet, a laptop/desktop, or a smartphone, you can literally work from anywhere and make reasonable amounts of money each month.

    I love the concept of working as a VA. A Virtual Assistant has plenty opportunities to leverage and make money as you indicated in your article. For example, although I didn’t specify in my social media bios across social media sites that I’m VA, I literally do the work of a virtual assistant, and it has been fascinating because I enjoy doing what I do and pay the bills.

    What more can I ask for? Thank you for sharing Susan.

    After I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment. There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me from that service? Kudos!

    RV parts shop is a nice job to have. It is very in demand now from adventure seekers.

    You have little option but socialize with either your family because it is such a small space, but also with other campers around the area you are. There is only so much you can do indoors even if you have state of the art technology in your RV.

      Yet, you have mentioned an advantage to working out of your RV– you get to spend more time with your family as well as socialize with campers in your area.
