mail forwarding service

I hope to be in Florida for 3 months or so just after (or maybe before) Christmas. While I pay the majority of bills online or "auto pay", I'd still like to see some of my mail. Anyone use these folks? MyRVmail.com ?? Any thoughts or suggestions?

Do you plan on staying at one campground in those 3 months? If so, that campground may have a mailing address for you to use. This is our first winter in Florida with a mh and the cg gave us their mailing address with the lot #.

I would just use the service the USPS offers.

One alternative is to forward your mail to a friend or family member and have them put it in a "if it fits it ships" USPS box and mail it to a place you will be for 2 wks. If you call the campground in advance, they will give you the address.

We stay in one place for 3 months and do this. Works great.

When we looked at traveling for a year, my plan was to talk to one of my tech savvy buddies and have him just scan and email me stuff weekly or so.

Be careful forwarding your mail to the campground! The campground is considered a business address and individual forwards are not allowed out of a business so when you leave your mail is stuck going to that address unless the campground is nice enough to manually forward it to you. You can do a temporary forward, but I recommend forwarding it to a friend or family member to send you on the stuff you want. You can put in a temporary forward for up to a year. Be sure and cancel it several days before you plan on returning then you can put in a hold order to hold the mail for a week or so until you return. Remember a hold order is only good for less than 30 days. If you decide to extend your trip no problem just fill out another temporary forward for the time your going to be gone. Just remember it takes up to 10 business days to activate a forward. Can you tell where I work?? You could have a neighbor get your mail at your house and forward what you want and save the trouble of forwarding it. They can package up what you want and mail it to you. There is a new service called premium forwarding service where the USPS holds your mail and mails it all to you in a priority box once a week. It is like $10 a week though and not sure if you are moving every couple of weeks how that would turn out.
