By far the most popular job for RVers is serving as host at a campground or RV park. Much like a park manager position, these jobs typically require you to perform general cleaning and maintenance, monitor the campground or park and greet and register guests. Obviously, it's best if you like working with the public and meeting lots of new people.

These positions can be found everywhere and in camps of all sizes. Make sure to inquire about the park's size and typical occupancy rates ahead of time, along with its amenities, which can be generous or sparse and thus have different commitment needs. Some camp hosts are strictly office-based positions, too, so if you're looking to be out in the fresh air, this wouldn't be the job for you.

Don't assume this job isn't exciting. A Georgia campground in need of a host features a zoo, small-gauge railroad and train and boat dock. A Texas African Wildlife Lodge has giraffe, zebra and wildebeest on the premises.

As we've shown you, a wide variety of jobs are available to suit a diverse population of seniors with RVs. With just a few weeks' or months' worth of work at a time, you can earn enough money to be off to your next exciting destination.
