Will be full timing soon and have heard of MyRVMail, American Mailbox and USA2Me for having mail sent to us while traveling. Any opinions on these? Any others to check out? Leaving Florida soon towards who knows!Advantages and disadvantages? Costs? Reliability?

A lot depends on what state you domicile in. If you retain a Florida address then it doesn't matter. If you want a mail service that gives you a Florida address for domicile purposes then you have more limited choices. There is Escapees, I think Passport America uses an outfit in Tampa and there is another on Green Cove Springs that a lot of people like. There maybe others that I don't know about.

That would be St. Brendan's Isle. We have used them since 2006 and love them!!

I have been FT since 2006 and I am very happy with My Home Address SD. Tell them PMB 1312 recommended them.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

Yes, X2 in Florida, St Brendan's Isle in Green Cove Springs. Been using it for about eight years, never once had a problem. Very pleasant folks in office too.

Howdy!

We’ve been using Escapees Mail Service for over 13 years and they have provided us with great service. It’s my understanding they now provide mail service for not only Texas but also South Dakota and Florida

Well sort of, they provide mailing addresses in FL and SD which along with TX are the major RV preferred domicile states. But they ship all the mail back to Texas and process it there. I've heard some belly-aching about that, why I don't know. We aren't going to start using one until May 20 when I think we will use St Brendan's Isle.

I used USPS STORE. They provide a real address.
Emphasis on the word 'store'. It is NOT the United postal service.
https://www.theupsstore.com/

I locate a 'USPS Store' where I am at and I sign up.

Then I go to the official United Postal Service on line and click on forward my mail to that address. https://www.usa.gov/post-office#item-213659

Post office forwarding is good for 4 months. If I stay longer than 4 months or move location you just go back and renew your forwarding to new USPS STORE where you are at.

Lol I did this for over 6 years! [emoticon]


We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

I have used St. Brendan's Isle in Green Cove Springs for the last 10 months.
Have not been disappointed, mail arrived when and where I needed it to go and could count on the day it was supposed to have been there. I have FL residency.
