Want to travel around North America for free? Then consider becoming an RV courier! That's someone who delivers brand new - or newly-customized - RVs to the dealership where they were purchased. You even get paid for it!
According to the website, WalletPop.com, it's a great way to make money on weekends, over the summer, or to supplement your retirement income. There are 3,800 RV manufacturing and modification sites across the U.S. and Canada and all of them need drivers to deliver vehicles to their final destinations. Manufacturers also need drivers to deliver new limousines, ambulances, and school buses and they're hiring about 5,000 new drivers a month.
The manufacturer pays for fuel, insurance, and your flight back home. Plus you get the frequent-flyer miles. You also get free lodging, because you sleep in the RV. As long as you arrive at your destination on schedule – usually about 1 week – they don't care what route you take to get there. They'll also pay you! Most companies pay RV couriers by the mile. About $0.30 a mile is a good rule of thumb.
So, say you're driving a souped-up RV from Detroit to Las Vegas, with stops at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Devil's Tower in Wyoming, and the Grand Canyon. You'd drive roughly ,2500 miles, have a free vacation, and make about $750. So, how do you qualify to be an RV courier? You have to be at least 18 years old, with a valid driver's license, and a good driving record. You don't need special training, because smaller RVs drive just like a minivan. Unless you're ferrying something as big as a Greyhound bus, you don't even need a commercial driver's license.
Does that sound like the life for you? If you'd like to go further, check out the website, http://www.TravelForPay.org.
