    Hi mtwallet,
    When you retire you want have time to do part time work :laugh: . This has been asked on the forum before. Seems like there was some web sites for this. Go to the search at top of page and see if you can locate. I would also ask my local rv dealers. Have heard they don't pay to well but, get to travel in the process. Good luck
    :)

    mtwallet> Hi and welcome to the forum. My personal experience. When I retired I was bored out of my gourd for a while and decided that I had made a poor decison to retire early. While buying a toad for my MH i mentioned to the sales manager at a local auto dealership how bored I was. He asked if I wanted to drive cars for them. I had no idea what he was talking about, but found later that auto dealers hire retired guys to deliver and pickup autos for them. We get paid on a per-trip basis and can turn down any trip we don't want to take w/o any problems. I do dealer trades with new cars, pick up customer cars, deliver new cars to customers, drive cars back from sales and that sort of thing. We work chiefly in the Atlanta and N Georgia area, but regularly do trips to Tenn, Ala, NC and have delivered a new BMW to a customer in Manhattan, NY City. Don't make a fortune, but it pays for vacations and trips (and gets my out of the house according to the 'boss')

    good luck
    :)

    Mr mtwallet!Back in 1988 I had the"MISSFORTUNE" to get one of these MAKE $50,000 a year jobs.Never made a dime,there were a lot of times that I used a credit card to get back to Indiana to deliver another one.Thes mh that you would be delivering are not to be "used"-you are not allowed to use the facilities.You can sleep in the unit.Thats it!!They pay you a flat sum of money--then it was .36 a mile X map miles.From this money it was your responsibility to ensure that it get there ina timely matter.IT had to be washed before delivery.If it needed oil,gas,lightbulbs or whatever,it came out of your pocket.Sometime if in transit a window should crack or damage by road debris,the dealer would try to make you pay for it.Now the best part of the adventure,getting back to Indiana from wherever.From Bc it was usually 5 days by Greyhound,hungry,in need of bath and wonder wher the next mh was going.Sometime I had to lay around the terminal in indiana for 2-3 days-waiting.I did this for 6 months.To anybody out there that thinks this is great,it is BBbbuuuutttt.NO MONEY.If you have children,a wife,all kinds of bills,you cannot afford to do it.OK Ive said enough.One more thing.The guy(Craig Chilton)that wrote the book,well ill tell you what if there was $50,000 ayear in it,why wasnt he doing it?? Because (imo)He sells books!!! GL :evil: :question:
