Workamping is the adventurous life of travel enjoyed by many Americans of all ages. Traveling from place to place, state to state, and job to job may not be a lifestyle made for everyone, but for many it affords the adventurous life they have always dreamed of while providing a modest income to boot.

Single & Solo Workampers

Many of today’s Workampers travel as couples, singles, and sometimes families with children in tow, sharing both the responsibilities of each new job and the lifestyle responsibilities of trip planning, driving, and the not-so-glamorous tasks included with setting up their campsite. But not all Workampers come in pairs, and for those who don’t, there are often additional worries about finding employers who are willing to hire just one.

While these fears are not to be entirely disregarded, they are a little over exaggerated with the usually negative social media posts that dominate the scene.

Knowing the Difference

Let’s first clarify the difference between a single Workamper and a solo Workamper…

Single refers to a situation where one person is able/willing to work. This person may or may not be traveling with a partner.

Solo is describing someone who is traveling alone.

Many employers, in my experience, will try their best to fill spots with couples based on the simple fact that they can get two workers that only occupy one site. It’s not personal, it’s business. They’re trying to lower their costs while being able to utilize the skills and labor force of two individuals compared to just one.

What you need to know is that employers are looking for both, those who can fill one spot and those who fill two. Solo & Single Workampers may not be the majority when it comes to folks who travel, but the reality is that many amazing people do this alone and their numbers are growing!

There are many employers who hire just one worker per site. Some employers only have one available position, or maybe they prefer to not have the possibility of personal issues trickling into the workplace and have made the choice to not hire those who live or travel together. Either way, it works in your favor. Embrace these jobs and these opportunities and you’ll find there is a variety of options for you to choose from.

What Types of Jobs Are Available?

There are a variety of employers and income opportunities available for Solo & Single travelers. A mix of negotiation skills, creativity and patience is almost always a requirement.

 Who Hires Single & Solo Workampers?

Many employers hire one Workamper, some just don’t make a point to directly state this in their recruiting ads. Others obviously love to recruit two strong workers to fill one RV site but welcome single workers with open arms if and when possible. Many employers would be in favor of one strong worker as compared to a couple where one half is seen as a thorn, so do your best to always inquire with employers about the availability for hiring one person.
