Hi all, tried to search this subject with no luck. If you are a 100% RV'er, how do you get your regular mail? IE, magazines, bills and such? I know a lot is now thru the internet, but some aren't yet. Just wondering as I will hopefully go on the road soon........... ;>)

This is an important topic. The famous Tioga George who full timed, mostly in Mexico, used mail forwarding services in South Dakota and Texas; both of these states are friendly to rvers i understand.  An important consideration is where you are going to register and insure your rv and get your drivers liscense. George ties that all in, but I believe that he did have to come back to these states occassionally, like once a year, to keep titles and such updated. Members please chime in on this and tell us your experience. 

Hi Mark,I use Escapees Mail Service.Unlike most mail services I get a physical address that can be used to receive my Texas plates and other official stuff.Escapees will save your mail and send it to you anywhere when called with their 800#.Be sure to check out Escapees.com for all your full timing needs.SKP's

I like that suggestion Jimco. I am going to look into Escapees myself. Has to be better that doing a Post Office Box place to place.


If I had the money, it looks and sounds like a good service. At $185 to $225 a year doesn't sound bad.

  I have used mail forwarding for several years, some via USPS Mail Forwarding,,,,,,,,,Some via Good Sam Club,,,,,,,,,,,Some via Escapees. While others probably have the same features, what I liked with Good Sam was they basically held my mail until I e mailed or phoned them and told them to package it all up and the send it to me at the location where I happened to be and was gonna be for say a week or so to ensure delivery time. As I recall, I also had options of some types of mail they could trash and which mail they should pack up and send to my semi permanent address. What I didn't like with USPS was how I seemed to get some mail some of the time and never got other mail, it had to do in part with what was First Class. I got best service with the private services such as Good Sam and liked the options available such as what to forward and what they could trash etc.
