Spend nearly two years in a global pandemic, and it won’t take long to figure out the recreational vehicle (RV) owners of the world have a good thing going, and it’s still going. RV sales are still at an all-time high, and why wouldn’t they be when you can travel, work, and play from your very own mobile home base?

According to RV Travel, a record 590,000 RV units were sold in 2021. It seems RV popularity isn’t waning anytime soon. Projections for 2022 are well above the 600,000 range, a four percent increase from last year. Quite the feat, considering the dismal supply chain situation.

In an age when working remotely is more of a reality than going into the office every day, living full time in an RV is absolutely feasible. of course, there are a few things to consider before taking to the open road for good.

Since RV travel has become increasingly popular, getting reservations at campgrounds is not as simple as rolling into an open spot in the middle of the night. Being prepared and planning several steps ahead is necessary for the ever-changing landscape of RV travel.

While traveling and working full time in an RV might sound impossible, it’s no longer just a dream. In today’s work-from-home culture, it’s more attainable than ever to travel the open road while still putting in a full day’s work.

How to (and not to) work remotely from an RV

Once upon a time, living in an RV seemed like it could only be obtained through retirement or a winning lottery ticket. Since the pandemic, it’s a much more “normal” way to live. As with any remote work, there are wrong and right ways to work from an RV. Motor Biscuit offers these helpful do’s and don’ts:

  • DO set up a designated work area – Convert the dining room space or even a closet into a dedicated office.
  • DO make sure you have a reliable internet connection – Almost as important as having a workspace is having a good internet connection, no matter where your travels take you. Many RV owners have multiple phone lines or mobile hotspots. A WiFi booster might also be a good option to receive the best connection possible. While most campgrounds offer WiFi, it might not be a strong enough signal for someone trying to work remotely.
  • DO hone your time management skills – Developing some serious time management skills is extremely important for being able to work efficiently in your RV. Set an appropriate work-life balance by creating a strict schedule and following it.
  • DON’T drive and work on the same days – Separate driving days and working days so as not to overwhelm yourself. Working remotely and traveling can both be stressful, so try not to do both on the same day.
