But what if you’d like to go on an RV trip but still work? Is that even possible? Yes! With some creativity and organization, it’s not only possible but also rewarding. Here’s how:
Manage the kids or other distractions.
Your RV is a place where you can get work done. But if you don’t manage the kids or other distractions, they will quickly take over your time and space.
Keep the kids from playing in your workspace. If they have their own table or area where they can do arts and crafts, make it so!
As for the inevitable distractions, here are some ways you can manage them:
- Take a walk outside
- Go for a run
- Eat something healthy
- Meditate (if you’re into that)
- Make a list of all the things you accomplished today
Have a set schedule for work and stick to it.
When your work schedule is flexible while traveling in an RV, it’s easy to get caught up in the moment and forget your goals.
That’s why it’s important to have a set schedule for when you’re working from home and stick to it—even if you’re enjoying yourself!
For example, if your goal is to get ahead on projects in the morning before going out for the day, then set aside an hour or two for that work first thing in the morning. Then make sure you finish by noon to enjoy the rest of your day.
Get the right equipment for your workstation.
When working remotely while on an RV trip, it is important to have the right equipment at your workstation. This includes a good computer and a reliable internet connection.
It’s also important to ensure you have all the necessary software installed. It can be any app your company is currently using or a productivity app to keep track of your professional and personal life.
When powering your workstation, you need to know how much energy your device consumes. You can decide whether to use an external power supply or rechargeable batteries.
In addition, make sure that everything is properly organized. So that you can easily find what you’re looking for when working in remote mode.
Plan ahead to eliminate security concerns.
While working remotely on an RV trip can be a fun and exciting experience, it is important to take precautions to avoid any security concerns.
One way to do this is by setting up secure passwords for all your online accounts, including your email, social media platforms, and banking accounts. Additionally, use two-factor authentication on all of those accounts if possible.
You should also create an emergency backup plan in case something prevents you from accessing your information or files. Also, make sure you have contact details for friends and relatives who can help out if necessary in case you get lost or stranded.
Give yourself some time to adjust to the new way of life.
One of the most important things is that adjusting to a new way of life takes time. You will have to get used to it and learn how to adopt the right mindset for your RV trip experience to be as enjoyable as possible.
The most important thing is being patient with yourself and letting go of expectations about how you want something to happen or what you expect from others (including your traveling companions). The more you practice this mindset, the easier it will become for you!
These tips are intended to give you an idea of what you can do and how to do it. Thousands of other working RVers manage to livelihoods and travel simultaneously, so there is no particular recipe for success.
Follow your heart, be resourceful, don’t be afraid to try something new, and enjoy your life-and-work balance: whether part-time or full-time.
