Take a Camper to UXO Jobs

by Jason
(US)

I have a camper that I would like to pull to jobs I work, so I don't have to spend all of my Per Diem on hotels and motels. Do you know Techs that do that and is it acceptable to the companies I would work for?

Camper to UXO Jobs with Per Diem
by: Steve Cassidy

Having a camper/5th wheel is a great way to go.

One of my friends, Pete, does that for all of his jobs. The issue is that some companies pay flat rate Per Diem so you get all the money and spend it as you see fit.

All UXO companies are a little different but you'll receive about 50 cents per mile to drive to the job site from your house. Make sure that's the case as some will only pay you the price of a one way airfare based on a purchase price a month or two out!

Others will pay you the food and incidentals portion and reimburse you for the hotel. In your case they would reimburse you the camping and hook up fees. Be sure to save all of your receipts for travel claims.

I can see the advantages if you're traveling with a pet as some hotels may upcharge you for having a pet in the room.

I haven't met any yet, but I know there are couples that are working the grid together which allows each of them Per Diem. If you're each making $150 a day in Per Diem, that's $9000 a month tax free! Now throw your pay in on top of that. Money!

Either way, it?s a lifestyle choice. I do like the camper way but I don?t do it as I use the hotel points for international travel and vacations with my family.

If you have specific comments or experiences with travel, our readers and I would greatly appreciate your experiences, good and bad.
