‘Office on wheels’ … working on the RV road


Five years ago, one couple, Jim Nelson and René Agredano, “sold their graphics business, their Eureka, Calif., home and most of their belongings and hit the road full-time in a 24-foot, fifth-wheel trailer. Equipped with gadgets including a satellite dish for Internet access, solar panels and a pair of laptops, they have a virtual office that travels with them. Nelson, 45, works remotely as a graphic designer, while his wife of 15 years, 43-year-old Agredano, works as a freelance writer and jewelry maker,” states Vignesh Ramachandran in a recent article on The Bottom Line on NBCNews.com.

“Out of the 8.9 million American households that have RVs, about a half-million live full-time on the road, the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association estimates. But it’s hard to know exactly how many of those full-timers work from the road,” said Kevin Broom, a spokesman for the industry group.
