Kevin & Tabitha Maser explain how to seRV With Purpose in Episode 274

Today I am interviewing a couple from California who retired from the U.S. Navy and hit the road in search of adventure. Along the way, they found unique ways to serve people in the communities they visit.

Kevin and Tabitha Maser have been RVing for almost three years, and they have been Workamping the entire time.

The couple loves to serve as camp hosts. They have worked for county parks, large resorts and they really enjoy working for private, family-run RV parks. However, they have also held other jobs, such as working for the beet harvest in Michigan.

They tend to pick a location they’d like to visit, then look for suitable jobs in that area. Many times, those jobs come with pay and a free RV site.

Yet, the Masers also create opportunities to serve others wherever they go. They work with a group established by Lippert Components called seRV With Purpose. It creates meaningful opportunities to connect RVers with local non-profit organizations to engage in purpose-driven volunteerism.

During their first event, Kevin and Tabitha joined other volunteers to help create a nature trail at the RV park where they were staying. They enjoyed the experience so much, the Masers became seRV With Purpose ambassadors and orchestrated two events last month in the Carolinas.

At those events, the Masers worked to pack up food for a local food pantry in Wilmington, N.C. Then, in Myrtle Beach, S.C., the couple helped to run the ShamROCK ‘N Run half-marathon.

They will soon be headed back to Traverse City, Mich., to finish work on a nature trail project they started in 2023. Kevin and Tabitha also plan to make cards for kids suffering from long-term illnesses as well as working with a group which provides equine therapy to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome.

Being in the U.S. Navy for many years, the Masers traveled around the world and lived in Hawaii, but discovered some truly spectacular places to visit in the United States, especially in Michigan, where they were never more than six miles away from water.

Kevin and Tabitha took time off from their schedules to compete in Season 2 of RV Unplugged, which premiers May 29th at 7 p.m. Eastern. They will be hosting weekly watch parties at the Holiday RV Park in Traverse City, but also plan to attend the finale Aug. 5 to 8 at Camp Margaritaville in Auburn, Fla.

To prepare for boondocking for an extended period of time, the Masers installed two Ecoflow Delta Pro battery packs and a smart generator to create 7,000 watts of power.

They live in a 38-foot Alliance fifth wheel because of all the living space it offers. Although they have faced challenges on the road, they learned to fix many common problems with their rig by attending an RV Fundamentals class offered by the National RV Training Academy in Texas.

People can connect with Kevin and Tabitha on Instagram and Facebook by searching for “he she and a husky.”

I’ll have that interview on the next episode of The Workamper Show. Thanks for listening!
