LTRVD0336 Hanging Up the Keys

Be A Workamper

We start out with a warning to all who are anywhere close to the path of hurricane Joaquin to move away from coastal locations and head west as soon as possible. RV’s aren’t made to withstand that kind of wind and rain with the possibility of tornadoes.

We talk at length about workamping and the importance of good prior planning to ensure you will be able to live fulltime with workamping as the sole source of income.

In our feature, Kathy talks about Hanging Up the Keys and discusses reasons to leave the RV lifestyle and the thought process that should happen before you sell your rig and hang up the keys for good.

John mentions a new website called They have replacement mattresses for every size and kind of RV, Truck, and whatever else you may have. Check them out.
