Hipcamp Journal

Get Paid to Road Trip for Hipcamp

As a Field Scout, shoot new properties and make money while having fun.


We giddily squeeze our lives into the back of a pickup, embracing those janky baby-wipe showers and the manic euphoria of pulling into a gas station after running on fumes for 30 miles. We road trip because we like getting thrusted into unfamiliar situations that force us to live in the moment.

So, fellow nomads, van-lifers, relentless guarders of car cupholders, and savage champions of the Passenger's Bill of Rights, we are pleased to offer Field Scout Road Trips. (You're not a Field Scout, but you'd like to learn more about becoming one? No problem. Read up on how to Field Scout for us here.)

If you're interested in creating your own road trip, book 3 or more assignments within a two-week period and then email us. We'll help you coordinate the trip and make sure everything is taken care of on our side.

Get paid to road trip and make memories—it's that simple.
