TRAILER: Work Space


Working while at a show requires your trailer to be ready to handle the load. The two main things you need are most likely, internet and an appropriate work space.


Here are some tips for staying connected on the road:


Don’t Count On Showgrounds: Let’s be honest, if you’ve ever stayed at a showground, then you know the WiFi is notoriously unreliable, or non-existent. Create your own wi-fi.

Hot Spot: Get a rereliable cellular data plan with your phone or personal hotspot that you can link to your computer or work device.

Boost Your Signal: Consider getting a cell signal booster, antenna, or WiFi booster that you can install inside or on the roof. There are plenty of well-reviewed devices on the market, and most are super easy to install. There are also plenty of RV-specific resources online that help review various tech products and share different mobile internet options—the Mobile Internet Resource Center is a great place to start.


Next, think desk and the work location:

Be comfortable. Make sure you are able to sit up and be comfortable with a stable surface for your computer.

Be efficient. There are so many options for a desk. With a little bit of online shopping, you can find the best solution for your trailer layout.

  • Lap desk

  • Folding desk

  • Pull out desk

  • Wall mounted desk

  • Dining table desk

  • Drop leaf table


So, hit Pinterest, have some fun with ideas and get to work. Making these adjustments to your trailer will allow you to have your cake and eat it too. Get to work!
