Questions for RVers that work on the road.

We are relatively new to RVing. I still work a full time job but I can work anywhere. I need my computer and my phone and that is about it.
My question is that I don't think that I can get my work done with my wife and three cats in my office. Are there campgrounds around that rent out office facilities? I would need a couple of desks and that's about it. Good wifi would be great but I have an ATT air card to have access to the internet if no wifi is available. I also need a phone but could get by with my cell phone if necessary.

thanks, Leo

Ever think about getting a trailer that you can fit your car in for travel but can be configured as an office. when parked?

Just a thought.

ps I see Homeless had similar thoughts - well sort of. I did tow a friends TT a couple of times and they rode with us

I have a friend that purchased a toyhauler motorhome. The "toy" part is used exclusively for business purposes.

I work on the road a lot. Don't need the physical space or separation you need. I setup on the passenger dash and chair area. For communications I use a MiFi 4G/LTE hotspot from Mellincom to create a local network and a OOMA VoIP box. if good WiFi is available I use a Hawking Technology repeater to improve the WiFi connection and create the local network.

Many of the "resort" campgrounds that I have stayed at have a business center. I have used them sometimes for hours at a time and rarely have other guests in there with me. As far as the cats go I think you could manage, the wife maybe not, but sometimes I just tell mine that I need a 6 hour workday and she is more then willing to amuse herself at a museum or local mall.

FYI I full-time and work from my 39' MH with a computer, MIFI and my multi-function tree-killing laser printer. Been doing it now for almost a year and I actually the move to full-timing streamlined my operation down by forcing me to go all digital. I hated the almost one solid year of prep for it but now that everything is scanned into PDF files and I have two independent cloud type backup services things actually go much faster and smoother.

I work from "home" or wherever the RV happens to be. I have a business cellphone that is the "work" phone. We carry our own wifi (Verizon) to make sure I can take care of business when we are on the road.

We also have 3 cats. There are times that one cat will think he should have my attention & not the phone call or the keyboard. But, typically, they are content to continue with their naps. Sometimes I do have one think they need to snuggle between me & the keyboard. But after a bit, the kitty will settle down beside me.

In our previous rig I used the dining table for the office as we didn't use it for meals. We have a new rig now & I'm contemplating on where I will set up shop. I'm considering as vsheetz said using the passenger seat area.

DH is typically puttering around with some project or outside. He's pretty good at keeping himself occupied.

In the past I have enjoyed working while sitting at Pelican Roost at Naval Station Mayport & watching our Navy sail by. The RV makes for some awesome scenery from the "office" window. I have enjoyed some days having the laptop outside with me & just working from the ease of the lounger. Most people walking by just say "hey" & if they stop for a chat, I figure it's time for a break.

If you're needing more actual office, the trailer looks like a possibility. Everything would be there just as you want it.

It's exciting to consider your new adventure! Safe travels to you & yours.

I was working while sitting outside the RV the other day. Listening to the nearby creek and enjoying the trees and scenery. Pretty great.
