Your Business Isn’t Sustainable Before You Leave
First and foremost, your business needs to be fully sustainable before you leave for a life on the road in your RV. This means that you will need to be making sufficient income for the past several month, with projected growth or sustainability over the upcoming months as well.
Since you’ll be spending a fair amount of your time driving as well, it may be wise to hire a virtual assistant to help handle some of your work and tasks when you are unable to do so.
It’s important to manage your time effectively when running any business, but when working from an RV, it’s even more important.
This is because when you’re working from an RV, you’re going to need (and want) to dedicate your time to other things as well, such as driving, hooking up the RV at the campsite, and also exploring the area and having fun.
But still, you need to learn how to work effectively, and that means managing your time effectively. Schedule each day of the week ahead of time so you’ll know exactly what days and hours you’ll be working and when you won’t.
You Don’t Have A Good Place To Work
If there’s a flaw with motorhomes these days, it’s that the vast majority of them don’t come with an office space.
Regardless of whether you want to modify your RV so that it has an office in it or not, you should still make it so that there’s a comfortable place for you to sit down and work done. Maybe that will be the kitchen table and seats, or maybe you would like to completely renovate part of the interior so that there is an office area with a work desk and everything.
Your Access To Internet Is Unreliable
This is a big one. Without internet access, how are you supposed to get much work done at all?
Fortunately, there are a handful of solutions here. You can go into a coffee shop or library in the local area, where there’s almost always reliable internet connection. Or you can only go to RV parks that have Wi-Fi (though admittedly, the internet connection at RV parks isn’t always the best). Or as one more option, you can bring a Wi-Fi router with you wherever you go too.
