Making Money Remotely

A good source of income that you can generate remotely is the first step to freedom. There are lots of ways to make money as an RV digital nomad. Consider starting up your own freelance business to fund your travels. Becoming your own boss enables you to set your own schedule and follow your passions while traveling. You could sell products online, either created or curated. Other freelance ways to generate steady income include transcription, copy-writing, online tutoring, or research assistance, and these are only a few of the hundreds of possible ways to earn money remotely.


Creating a freelance business can be fun and rewarding. If you go this route, consider forming a limited liability company. LLC formation services are a good choice when starting up. ZenBusiness can guide you through the process and make sure you are following the rules unique to your home state, which helps avoid legal issues later.


There are several good reasons to start an LLC: flexibility in the demands of structure and rules of the business, insurance protection for yourself and your assets, easier yearly filing that is less as expensive than other forms of incorporating, and last but not least tax advantages with easy and flexible preparation.


Finding Community on the Road

According to the Center for Public Impact, the importance of community is much more significant than we usually consider. Being part of a community is a significant part of who we are. We see or understand ourselves in the reflection of our community members and our shared identity. We experience the joy of belonging that defines us through shared stories and cultural resources.


Working remotely can sometimes be lonely. Connecting to a group of people also living the dream can make all the difference. There are amazing community groups for the full-time RV traveler on various social media platforms. Joining these groups offers the benefits of social gatherings, resources, and that sense of belonging to something larger than ourselves with purpose and containment.


Saving on a Good Night’s Sleep

Traveling in an RV can be cheaper than staying in hotels or bed and breakfasts. There are many ways to save on a good night’s sleep while living a digital-nomadic life:

  • Become a camp host: You can rent for free in exchange for light cleaning or registration duties.
  • Join travel clubs: These clubs may offer free or discounted camping fees and amenities.
  • Boondock: Look for a travel club for this, too, or find free places to park in the wilderness.


Everything you need to start living the dream and become a digital nomad working remotely is literally at your fingertips. A wide array of resources for your new life can be found online: opportunities for working, safe sleeping, and meeting friends like you. Amazing adventures await just outside your door. Take the road less traveled — the road to freedom!
