Questions for Full-Timers

Greetings,
Did a search & couldn't find the info I'm looking for. I'm very curious about the "Full-Timing" RV lifestyle, especially the "on the move Full-timers",(couple weeks/months here and then moving on) not the "I live in a RV in Florida year round" kind. Was hoping some fulltimers could throw some good info at me such as obligations and consequences that you've experienced, such as maintaining some sort of home of residence (you have to have a driver's license from some where), and somebody still wants their taxes revenues. I've read a few post about folks selling their houses and going full time. How does something like that work?

Thanks in advance!

I am on my third season, basicly between AZ and IL. I use my son as a point of contact (IL) and currier for mail service. We like to connect for a two or three day of fishing. I did a 100amp service box in his garage so when I visit I can park in his driveway. Did I say you need to have an extention cord for electricity. Was at Spruce Creek Park, Belview IA last month and had to strech 40 ft. Great fishing though. Need a 150ft. water hose for refilling the fresh tank. Others will need help to. Can't say enough for walking around and talking to others. Much info can be gained.

Thanks for the reply.
I'm nearing a retirement option and would very much like to spend a year at least taking some time to travel around the country. I rent right now and I'm single so picking up and hitting the road wouldn't take much. I just got to thinking about some of the obligations I might need to consider like mail, income taxes, and such. I think P.O. Boxes are usually 6 month rentals, not to mention things like driver's licenses (maybe even voter registration) usually require a physical street address IIRC.
