Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.


We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Has anyone Lighthouse hosted?


I saw a post about this on an RV blog today and I have to admit, this sounds like my dream workamping setup! Has anyone here done this, or know where around the country (preferably East Coast) it's a possibility?

I'm getting ahead of myself, I know.....but this is the sort of discovery that really inspired me and gets me working even harder to reach my dream!

Nina and Paul from www.wheelingit.us/ have and are again this year. And
Cherie and Chris from www.technomadia.com/ have as well.
You would have to look back under last years summer blogs to find the info, but I remember they had a great time.

We hosted at Cape Blanco in Oregon last year, and loved it so much we're going back this fall (joining up with our buddies Nina & Paul).

Here's our wrap up post about the experience, including a video tour the four of us did:

And Nina & Paul have several posts on their blog as well about their various hosting positions, and how to go about finding volunteer gigs. Believe they have several lined up this summer in the PNW.

I don't know what opportunities are available on the east coast, but have heard that some of the Florida lighthouses have similar programs.

One warning is with many lighthouse hosting jobs, is they expect two people. My in-laws hosted at many lighthouses in Oregon and Washington and they expected one person to be arranging the tours/taking the money and the other to do the tour/talking. They didn't care if it was two men, two women or mixed, sharing the task, but they only supplied one campsite for two.
