We have been using the Escapees mail service for 20 years. No problems. Livingston, TX (Escapees home park) is our registered address and is on all documents. DMV seems happy with it.

The UPS Store mailbox service is perfect for this situation. When I need my mail, I just call them (or email them) and they send either everything, or just my first class mail to the new campground or location I am staying. Works wonderfully.

Two years ago, I started paying my bills on line through a major bank. Funds are electronically sent to the recipients database. In the event there is no database address, the bank sends a paper check at no cost to me. (You can determine the payment amount each month or select a specific amount to be automatically deducted on a given date each month.) Also, as often as I can, I ask for paperless billing. Both of these methods cut my "real" mail by about 60-70%.

We went full time last year, sold everything in NY, and moved our domicile to Florida using St. Brendan's Isle mail forwarding service. They supplied us with a legal physical address that was registered at the Clay County courthouse and is on our drivers licenses and all other legal documents. We are very pleased with the mail service too. You can google them and get all the information on their website. There are similar services in lots of other places. The most "full timer friendly" states for taxes, domicile laws, and other considerations seem to be South Dakota, Texas, and Florida (in no particular order). Everyone's situation is a little different. There's lots of information on line covering the subject. I suggest you spend some time researching what fits your situation the best. Lots of people have done it successfully without too much hassle.

We use my wife's mother's address. Works fine. She sends us our mail wherever we might be. Will continue until?

We are full-timers. We use Escapees RV Club mail service, and this provides a legal domicile address for us in Texas. Good Sam also provides this service for full-timers. These 2 clubs provide this service for just a few states. Check their websites for terms, conditions, various regulations, and other relevant information. The address reads as if it was an apartment. We use this address for vehicle registration, driver's licences, taxes, banks and credit cards, etc.

The service costs about $100 bucks a year, plus postage depending upon what you're having forwarded. Generally with packages/parcels I have them delivered to an RV park that we are or will going to.

Approximately every 2-3 weeks I call Escapees and have them forward our mail to a relevant RV park (either where we currently are, or going to be in the near future). I always check with the relevant RV park first to make sure I have the correct address, and that they will accept mail and package delivery, and as a general heads up/courtesy to them. Never had any problems, even when I've had mail delivered to a Canadian RV Park.
