entrepreneurs & Rv’ers
We recently started a new blog series where we interview various full-time travelers, sharing how they earn money on the road. Our goal is to help inspire and educate others on the various ways to work remotely while living a nomadic lifestyle. If you’re new to our blog, we have been full time RVing for over two years. We support ourselves by investing in real estate; specifically in mortgage notes.
Today’s interview is with Jay and Lindsay from Hitched n Hauling. We actually met Jay and Lindsay right before they hit the road to become full-time RV’ers. They were from our hometown, enjoy beer, good music, and disc golf so we knew we had to meet. Of course, we hit it off right away and were blown away by their really touching and unique story. We also find it fascinating how they are able to support themselves! We hope you enjoy getting to know them a bit more and learn how they earn money on the road.
Tell us your story! What made you want to take the leap to full time rving?
what was it like living in a tiny house, then going big, and back to tiny again?

How are you able to earn money on the road?
What does a typical “day in the office” look like?
I submit my orders through emails daily as well as follow up on all shipping to ensure everything goes out in a timely manner. I maintain all my sites, answer any questions customers may have, create new artwork regularly as well as make custom designs for those clients wanting a one of a kind cover. So, in a nutshell I sit in front of a computer working on graphic designs, answer questions and making sure all my customers are happy ?. I never have a true day off as this job is demanding and you make what you put into it. I have apps on my phone that I am constantly using to provide my customers with 100% satisfaction when I’m not near my computer. Here are two of my online stores to see more of what I do ?
Lindsay’s job is super detail oriented and has a lot of moving parts. She is in charge of maintaining and managing 38+ properties and tenants as well as conducting Real Estate transactions. She found someone locally to be her “boots on the ground” to help with showing units, checking on properties, conducting move outs, etc. She mostly handles the back office now and ensures everything is running smoothly.
What is needed to get started in your line of business?
It’s a weird niche that I honestly just stumbled across and the only thing I had going for me was some printing knowledge that I received previously by owning a t-shirt company. It took many long nights creating my sites, artwork and developing a reputation and client base. It is not the type of business that can be developed over night and takes a specialty shop with hi-tech printers and experienced sewing professionals to make it all come together. However, anyone can grow and develop an online sales company if they put enough time into it and give their clients great customer service and product.
what is one piece of advice you would give to someone who wants to follow in your footsteps?
Just do it! This lifestyle is obtainable for anyone if they wants it badly enough ?. You just need to get over the fear of it, buckle down and make small changes to get there. Life is what you put into it…Also paying down your debt or becoming debt free is extremely helpful.
We tend to get so caught up in our daily routine and keeping up with society. Most go to work Mon. – Fri. working 40+ hours a week, come home to eat and sleep and do it all over for 30+ years to retire, and then what? Be too tired to enjoy the fruits of their labor? We have finally seen the light and after 35+ years, we no longer want to worry about what society tells us we should do. We want to live life our way, and create our “white picket fence” anywhere in the US.
how can our readers get in touch with you?
What I do is an odd niche, but there are many ways to get started in online sales to earn money on the road. If you have any questions or have sales outlets and would like to partner up with me, please feel free to contact me: Jaysemail@example.com
Lindsay’s line of work requires a Real Estate and Property Management License. Every state has its own requirements, but she would be happy to answer any questions for those looking to get into the field. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
