Why RV Offices Becoming More Popular
Working remotely from an RV isn’t a new idea, however, it has increased in popularity over the past few years. Technology advances make it possible to have WiFi in remote locations and stay connected making full time remote workers able to flexibly travel and work at the same time.
How to Work Remotely on the Road
Making the transition from working in an office to working remotely on the road can be an adjustment but once you establish a working travel balance, it becomes much easier. Depending on your technological needs, you may need to make adjustments to make your work space functional and comfortable.
Creating a Comfortable Office in your RV
Making a comfortable work space is important when working remotely from you RV. While working outside in the scenic mountains or ocean side sounds amazing, it’s not always ideal for meetings and daily tasks. The sun glare, wind, sand and bugs can interfere with your work space. A few tips to create a comfortable environment include:
Using a wireless keyboard and mouse Set up your workspace at a table with a comfortable chair, not your bed Have proper lighting that is adjustable to avoid glare Elevate your laptop or use a second monitor to reduce stress on your back and keep the proper posture Sit near a window, if possible, to enjoy the scenic view even if you cannot be outside Decorate your RV with items that make you feel relaxed and happy just the way you would in a traditional office space
Keep your Workspace Organized
Keeping your Rv workspace organized will ensure your workday runs smoothly and will make it easier to work where you live. Consider headphones that block out the noise and help you to remain focused. After each work day, tidy your work area. Making sure it stays organized will keep you less stressed. Have places to store your laptop and any other office items you need while working. This makes it better to shut off from work after a long day and enjoy the outdoors with your family.
Set a Work - Travel Schedule
Creating a healthy balance between working, travel and exploring can be challenging. Working without a specific structure can damper your travel goals so creating a balance of your schedule is key to getting the best of both worlds. Set aside specific travel days. Always plan to stop driving before dark because setting up in new locations can be difficult especially if you’re not familiar with the area. Don’t plan on having a productive work day after traveling because it’s usually an exhausting task. Plan for dedicated workdays and allow time for setting up, tearing down and stopping along the way. If you stay in a location long enough, that gives you more time to finish work and explore the area.
