We make money as we travel by setting up as vendors at festivals and selling various items. Our first cross country trek as full timers took us from central Indiana to Seattle. This trip’s money came from the proceeds of a four week circuit of festivals we ran in Ohio and Indiana in July and August. We had just closed on the sale of our house, so this was our first time to really travel in our new Hideout travel trailer.
Sher wrote a post here describing how we got started by setting up at a flea market a couple of years ago. This was back when we had a tiny Starcraft hybrid trailer, but we still had a ball. We do it, you can too!
We soon discovered that we enjoyed festivals more than flea markets. Small town festivals are lots of fun and we began to see the same vendors at each event we went to.
