Why workamping makes sense

(Feb. 7, 2017) -- Workampers are people who combine RV living with part- or full-time work. The word is a portmanteau of "work" and "camper," and the group includes single people, couples and even families. An RV isn't even necessary — the term goes beyond RVs to encompass those who travel in any kind of camper, including those iconic Volkswagen vans.
