Full time RV'r residence address

If you are a full time RV'r with no other residence, traveling from state to state and not knowing where you will stay next, if a policeman stops you and asks what is your residence address -- what would you say?

We kept an address when we full timed. There wasn't a house there, just a shop and a piece of property. We had everything registered there. Never got pulled over in our travels, but if I did, I guess I'd explain the situation.

You have to have a domicile address somewhere. Typically this is where you mail goes and your driver's license reflects.

For us, since we rented out our house- we are using a friend for it in our hometown for schooling reasons.

Around here people can get a PO box or if they need a "real" address I have seen people use the UPS Store type places that rent out mail boxes.
PS: This has been seen on registration and licenses. It is not really ideal but not illegal here in PA.

Like Big John. I own my property. No house cause of fire. It gets interesting with insurance, banking. A good agent and bank helps. I know that I am not the only person in my town in the same situation.

I have met people that will have their stop or store(not sure if private or post office) and then it shipped to them as they could use the park or post office. He had CA tags on truck, northern state on camper and was planning to retire the coming year to TN to buy his charter boat. Think he rented an address I AM NOT SURE.

There are options just have to see what fits you.

Never been pulled over with a camper. If your driver lincese and registration match they won't know unless you tell.

Like eypend I would use a family member address. They have seen people who travel with no home base. Just be nice and it will be good.

I use a mal service here in Oregon and my license is listed as "continuous traveler" which satisfies the requirement for an address.

Our you licensed to drive by the state of Oregon or do you have a different license to drive. I have never seen a license stating "continuous traveler". I am curious now how many states allow that. (being retired from a PD I have seen a lot of licenses)

Yeah, where can I get one of those? I wish we could get a USA drivers license for those not tied to one particular state.

When we full-timed we used a Private Mail Box (PBM) which would package and ship us our mail on request. At different times we had in Washington state and Oregon, never any problem with drivers licenses either state. However, be aware that if you change your address the USPS will not allow forwarding from a PBM. That can be a real hassle.

We became full timers 4 years ago when we sold our house in Austin, Texas, and we started using Escapee's for our mail forwarding and a daughter's home address in the Austin area. We didn't feel it was worth the investment, and another of our daughters invited us to use their address for our driver's licenses and she sends mail to us about once a month after she peruses it for anything critical. It's working out well for us.
