 First. I suggest you create as many different income streams as possible. This way the failure of any one stream will not result in complete loss of all income as you will have the others to fall back on to.

1. Use sites like ODesk to find freelance work you can do with just a computer and an internet connection. For example by being a virtual assistant or coding.
2. Start your own website or blog, with high quality content. Spend months if not years building traffic to it. Add advertising to the site and make a few extra bucks. You could also make money by using affiliate programs or selling ebooks your write. There is no magic bullet, every site is different and it takes patients and experimentation to find the right mix to make it work. Do not expect to make a lot from adsense. You get paid by the click and it will take a lot of work to add up to a pretty buck.
3. Create high quality videos which you get sponsors for.
4. Create crafts which you sell at shows, on your own site and to other campers as you travel.
5. Work Kamp.. Many campgrounds, attractions, stores,summer camps, etc hire seasonal workers. Work for a time in one location and then move on to work for awhile in another area. Also you may be able to get other befits like free or reduced cost for your campsite.
6. If you are an amazing photographer you could make money taking pictures. however don’t expect to make a lot of money, if you even make any from the sites that sell your photos as stock images such as istock. These sites do make a few people a fair amount of cash, but they are the rarity.
7. Put on classes and seminars as you travel. You could teach just about anything that you are really good at. The hard part is figuring out how to find people interested in what you have to offer. This will take trial and error and some patients.
8. Unless you are doing something amazing you won’t be able to sell space on your rv or trailer to sponors. Everyone and their uncle wants to do this. You need to be able to offer an audience, that you have actually built up yourself. Keep in mind all sponsors care about is how is what your doing going to help them get more market share.

The main key is to stop and think about what you like doing and what you are good at. I find it helpful to make lists of both of these things. Then go through the list and start asking tough questions like do I really want to do that as a job, how can I get people to pay me for that, how can I spread the word to get customers for doing that, etc.

There is no such thing as easy money. Even with passive income, where once built the income just keeps on coming for example ads and ebooks. The theory here is true, but remember it relies on an active audience so you have to keep working at it to keep people coming back and to bring new people in. On the flip side there are other kinds of passive income such as bank interest, or stocks which have there own set of things you have to do to take optimal advantage of the income they can generate.

I hope I have not rained on anyones parade but if I have I hope my bluntness has helped you rethink what you are trying to do to fine a new direction of taking it that will work better.

I would love to hear about how you make money on the road, please tell me below in the comments section. (Please be patient as I had to go to a approval system on comments do to an overload of spammers)
