The drastic increase of people who are working remotely is no surprise. For many whose jobs have become permanently remote the thought becomes, “If I have to work from home, where would I want home to be?” Some people have chosen to permanently relocate their home to a dream location, to be closer to family, or to get a jump on settling where they plan to retire. But what if you don’t want to permanently relocate but would prefer to have a mobile home office instead?
Say Bye to Working from Home
With so many people working from home these days, it’s no wonder people are looking for ways to say goodbye to working from home. After being forced to work from home with barely a moment’s notice, a few weeks became months and for many, now over a year. While there are some advantages (your commute is now measured in steps vs. miles), the fact that you’re literally taking your work home with you because you never left home can begin to take its toll. This is one of the reasons RV offices are growing in popularity: it allows people to create a mobile space to work in that is separate from home. Even when your RV office is parked in your driveway, your commute is still measured in steps vs. miles and you can disconnect from work at the end of the day and “leave it at the office.” An added bonus? Just clear off your desk and you have a built-in guest house!
Another plus is that RV office is mobile which means that you can travel anywhere and work while you enjoy the view from any location you desire. Even though RVs are traditionally seen as a tool for camping, they are good for doing anything on the road – even work!
Which RVs Work Well as RV Offices?
Larger RVs have greater flexibility while smaller RVs make it easier to find a place to park; but nearly any RV can be transformed into an RV office. The size and type of RV you choose for your RV office will depend on your needs.
Will you need privacy, or a door to separate your RV office from noise? An RV with a private bedroom may be best suited to this situation offering not only privacy, but an area removed from the center of activity and the noise and distractions that come with it.
Depending on the type of work you do, you may only require a small table for a laptop and cup of coffee. However, if you require hookup to multiple screens or need additional desk space for large projects, you may need a much larger table for your desk space.
If there are other amenities you will require for your comfort and productivity, take those into consideration as well when you are choosing the size of RV for your RV office.
Front Living Room Floor Plans Make Great RV Offices
Another factor to consider besides the size of RV is the overall floor plan. When you choose an RV with a front living room layout, it gives your RV a more home-like feel which may be important when planning your RV office.
These front living room floor plans often have roomier living spaces, allowing you to spread out and work more comfortably. They also feature rear bedrooms which can be a more private RV office if others are staying with you in the RV.
Tips for Your RV Office
There are a few things you can do when designing your RV office to make your work experience more enjoyable.
Invest in a Wi-Fi Booster
No work experience is enjoyable with spotty Wi-Fi connection. For this reason, it only makes sense to invest in a Wi-Fi signal booster. Whether you plan to park your RV office in your driveway or travel and change your view on a regular basis, a Wi-Fi booster is well worth the investment to guarantee a strong and stable connection through hours of research, dozens of video calls, or simply to ensure your background music of choice is steady throughout the day.
Adding Your Own Desk
If you really want to customize your RV office, you can add your own desk. Depending on your level of comfort and skill level it could be as simple as measuring the area you want to put your desk, then bringing it in and possibly doing a little rearranging. If you are a DIY enthusiast and are comfortable with construction projects, you could take on a more complicated project like creating an RV office by removing the bunks and renovating a bunkhouse area.
Space Savers Are Life Savers
The best thing about creating your own RV office is just that, you can make it your own. There are lots of creative ways to keep everything you need nearby. Lots of camping hacks and space saving solutions can provide ways to maximize space and keep all the things you need within reach. Whether it’s corralling cords or finding just the right place for your red stapler, once you get your RV office just the way you like it, you can relax and enjoy your work days almost as much as you’ll enjoy the view from your new office.
