The end of retirement? From the beet fields of North Dakota to the National Forest campgrounds of California to Amazon’s CamperForce program in Texas, employers have discovered a new, low-cost labor pool, made up largely of transient older Americans. Finding that social security comes up short, often underwater on mortgages, these invisible casualties of the Great Recession have taken to the road by the tens of thousands in late-model RVs, travel trailers, and vans, forming a growing community of nomads: migrant laborers who call themselves “workampers.” On frequently traveled routes between seasonal jobs, Jessica Bruder meets people from all walks of life: a former professor, a McDonald’s vice president, a minister, a college administrator, and a motorcycle cop, among many others—including her irrepressible protagonist, a onetime cocktail waitress, Home Depot clerk, and general contractor named Linda May. In a secondhand vehicle she christens “Van Halen,” Bruder hits the road to get to know her subjects more intimately. Accompanying Linda May and others from campground toilet cleaning to warehouse product scanning to desert reunions, then moving on to the dangerous work of beet harvesting, Bruder tells a compelling, eye-opening tale of the dark underbelly of the American economy—one that foreshadows the precarious future that may await many more of us. At the same time, she celebrates the exceptional resilience and creativity of these quintessential Americans who have given up ordinary rootedness to survive. Like Linda May, who dreams of finding land on which to build her own sustainable “Earthship” home, they have not given up hope.

In the late 1970s we ventured across the country from northern California to western Pennsylvania and back through Washington and Oregon in Steven's boxy old 1965 Chevy van. Those were the days, my friends. That trip had a lasting effect and over time we realized we were destined to be full time RVers. In 1995 we sold our house and a Recreational Vehicle became our home. An RV has been our home every since.

This book was written by a retiree traveling in a recreational vehicle. If you are considering retiring to an RV, either full time or part time, this book is for you. It is designed to share the knowledge, experience and skills developed while spending my retirement years in an RV. It outlines the major aspects of the RV lifestyle for retirees, and shares ideas and experiences gleaned from many retirees already on the road. A recreational vehicle gives you the flexibility to live in the RV for as much or as little time as you want. Although I am partial to full-time RVing, this book recognizes that full-timing is not for everyone. As a matter of fact, most people who utilize an RV in retirement do so on a part-time basis. A recreational vehicle helped to fulfill my dream of traveling in retirement. As a matter of fact, to date, I've been to more places in this country than I ever thought possible. I've seen hundreds of sites that, in the past, I'd only read about All this travel has been achievable and affordable because of the RV. Let this book be your guide to fulfilling your retirement dreams.
