I have begun my rubbertramp odyssey as a volunteer for federal land management agencies. It doesn't pay but you can get free hookups and sometimes a stipend for expenses. You can work in some of the most beautiful places in this country. Commitments range from 2 months to permanent. check out www.volunteer.gov for available gigs.

There is another site listing paying gigs, mostly at RV parks and they usually look for couples. Pay ranges from 7/hr - 15/hr depending on location and duties plus full hookups and other amenities. I prefer the volunteeriing gigs but if interested, check out www.workamper.com

If anyone knows about other types of gigs, please post below, thanks.

When volunteering there's a stipend involved and they house you? No matter experience?

You have to apply for the position. Most include free hookups and some will supply propane and/or a stipend for expenses. Check the listing on volunteer.gov to see requirements and benefits.

Some positions also offer housing, it just depends on each place.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$115.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $115.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
