We plan to be on the road full-time the end of June and wanted to get some advice about mail forwarding. We have no friends or relatives address that we can use. We will also need to license our truck and fifth wheel and get a driver's license. Thanks
I was on the road for six months recently. During that time, my DL and vehicle registration needed to be renewed. My TT is reg indefinitely so I did not have to worry about that. I went online to my state DMV. They have a site to renew vehicle registration online. I did so and they mailed me the items needed to be legal. They also mailed me a vision test form for the DL. I took the form to a local DMV and asked them to give me a vision test using the form I provided. Once the eye exam test was done, I mailed it back to my home state DMV. The state DMV mailed me a new DL. Now both my TV and DL are legal. To get the mail delivered, I gave my state DMV a local post office address c/o general delivery. Your state may have a similar system to service folks temporarily out of state.
Regarding mail in general, I'm sure you will get lots of help on this one. I either opt for general delivery or rent a PO Box in a town that is closest to where I'm camping.

ditto on www.myrvmail.com they are owned by the same company as Passport America (half price camping club). I met the owner at a rally and he is very customer oriented. They have an upgrade service where they will scan your mail and you can read it online and they shred the original or forward to you. They will sort the mail and only send what you want when you want it.

I would guess from your signature that you live in St Louis, Missouri or Illinois.
As pointed out by Us out West this is a highly discussed topic. But since you asked I don’t mind sharing what we use for our mail service.
We are full timers, we live in our RV, we own no fixed property, and we workamp our way around the country, we stay 4 to 6 months at a workamper position then it is time to move on.
First you need to answer some questions about your full timing intentions. Many people say they are full timers but they only RV part of the year and they still own a Bricks and Sticks in a state they call their home of record and live there some of the time which puts a whole different spin on your Mail Service options.
Second you need to answer the question of how long you’re going to stay in one location. You need to remain in a location long enough to let snail mail get your mail to you. If you know your next destination you might be able to have your mail sent there.
Third you need to determine how much 3rd class mail you have and get rid of 90% of it; it will cost you extra for the weight of it. Don’t forget to go with a good banking service that is user friendly from the remote locations you will be in.
I am going to give you what I think is the best choice for the best options and bang for your buck. Along with a great RV Park with many options from lot owner ship or just monthly rent.
Hope this helps you some. This service is by far not the only Mail Service but in my opinion it offers the most diverse opportunities for the user. Texas as a whole has much to offer in respect Driver’s License, Insurance, Vehicle Tags, Voting options, and Jury Duty.
