RV Owners

If the only thing keeping you from full time RVing is a lack of work, then this article is for you! Today there are hundreds of opportunities to work without ever having to leave your rig.

Here are my Top 5 Reasons to Start a Business From Your RV:

1. Join The Club

If you decide to start a business from your RV you’ll be in good company. Today, RV business is hip. Whether you want to open a jewelry shop, clothing store, or tattoo parlor, an RV makes the perfect “showcase.”  Many entrepreneurs are converting RVs into portable shops on wheels.

Would you rather work online?

No problem. An RV could be your private office, allowing you to open a freelance business. Websites like: Real Ways To Earn offer tons of freelance opportunities that you can do from the comfort of your own rig. All you need is a laptop, a cell phone and a strong internet connection, and you could be up and running in no time flat.

2. Work From Anywhere and Everywhere

Believe it or not, a traveling business may offer more opportunities than a regular brick and mortar store. With an RV business, you travel where the people are. During tourist season you can set up shop near the beach. During the holidays you can park near Santa’s station. Wherever there are people, there is an opportunity to sell your product. If one market isn’t good, don’t worry. You can drive somewhere else!  Mobility brings a ton of advantages for people who are willing to embrace it.

Here are a just a few RV businesses that have been successfully run from RVs:

  • Beauty Shop
  • Clothing Boutique
  • Architecture Office
  • Landscape Design Consultant
  • Tea Party/Event Catering
  • Antique Shop
  • Embroidery Shop

3. Affordable Start Up

Updating your trailer or RV into a place of business will save you thousands compared to a traditional office remodel. Why spend money when you don’t have to? Use the space you already own and customize your office, shop, or food stand. An RV offers unlimited startup potential. Don’t own an RV? What’s stopping you? There are literally thousands of great used RV’s waiting for someone with vision. If you already have a truck consider, converting a travel trailer or fifth wheel. No truck? Then choose a Class A Motorhome for your new business endeavor. Remember, always hire an expert to inspect a potential used RV BEFORE you buy it for conversion. Your goal is to save money, not waste it!
