If you’re not DIY-savvy enough to turn a beat-up Volkswagen into the ultimate #VanLife adventure mobile, you can still make your cross-country road trip dreams come true the old-fashioned way: in an RV. Roadtrip Nation is taking applications for people who want to travel across the United States in their bright green RV, all expenses paid.

Those selected will plan a trip around their specific interests and goals and will learn first-hand from those who have forged their dream lifestyles in unexpected places. The winners will collaborate with Roadtrip Nation to research and book interviews along the way with people who are “leading the charge into work’s new, changing landscape, and…building their lives and careers they love.”

The trip will be filmed and the footage may appear on public TV and other video platforms, so make sure you’re not camera shy. But don’t worry if you’re not an actor. Roadtrip Nation wants real people, with a real desire to learn more about themselves while having an unforgettable experience along the way.

The ideal candidate for this epic road trip thirsts for self-discovery as much as physical exploration. They’re specifically interested in people who have no degree beyond high school but are enthusiastic about pursuing unconventional career avenues through apprenticeships, trade schools, online education and on-the-job training. You must also be 18 years old, and able to commit to three weeks of travel in September/October 2018.

So if you’re unsure about your next career move or are searching for your true passion, and are in need of some serious inspiration, be sure to apply by June 1.
