DO I NEED A MAIL FORWARDING SERVICE?
Getting your mail on the go can take a little getting used to. And although it’s not difficult, sometimes you have to coordinate your stops, your shipping and your pickups.

IS A FREE SITE EQUAL TO TRADING HOURS WORKED?
Working for an RV site is not the same as being provided a free RV site.
Make sure if you agree to work for your site that you calculate the number of hours you’re working for it and see how much you’re really being asked to pay.
DO I NEED A WORKAMPER RESUME?
A workamping resume is practically the same as a traditional job resume. It’s a tool to sell yourself to employers and grab a job you’re interested in- so you can use either.
A workamping resume can be much more simple than a traditional resume, but includes additional information like pictures, which are not usually sent by job applicants.
