One of the great things about RVing, is that you might even be able to pay for your stay in the RV parks and therefore support your RV lifestyle. Sometimes, the parks are looking for help as a host or as a attendants. You just never know. If you love a certain area and don’t mind staying put for a few months, then this could be an option for you.
Workampers are adventurous individuals, couples and families who have chosen a wonderful lifestyle that combines ANY kind of part-time or full-time work with RV camping. If you work as an employee, operate a business, or donate your time as a volunteer, AND you sleep in an RV (or on-site housing), you are a Workamper! Check out current Workamper news now! RVers will find everything they need to know about part-time or full-time working on the road.

Silver City KOA
This year they have been recognized by KOA Inc. for “outstanding camper guest service, facility and operation! Located on the east side of Silver City, Joe and Kris Greenwood are gracious hosts. They serve a home cooked breakfast every Saturday, Sunday from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
However, if you enjoying preparing your own meals then you have to try this easy and tasty recipe that I call Pizza For The Road.
- I buy prepared crusts such as Boboli or any prepared pizza crust will do.
2) Instead of spreading tomato sauce as the first layer, I use Brianna’s honey mustard salad dressing. I’ve tried other honey mustard’s, but this brand has the best flavor.
3) Then throw on feta or mozzarella cheese for the first layer.
4) Add slices of green pepper, roasted chicken strips, onion and mushroom.
5) Top with more cheese. Cook for recommended time. Yummy!
