RV mail forwarding


Thousands of American RVers are on the road for extended periods of time. In fact, many of us have sold our homes, and have no permanent address. How do we get mail? We have someone receive our mail, and forward it to us. A few may have a friend or relative forward our mail to us, but most pay a fee to a mail forwarding service. Most RV clubs offer such services. Some full-time RVers have even figured out that the address of the mail forwarding service can become their legal state of residence - and they select the service they use accordingly. That is, they choose a state that has no state income tax; or a state with a low annual RV registration fee. Many even register to vote in that state, and vote by absentee ballot!

If we're going to be staying at a private campground for a month or more, we might have our mail delivered to the campground office. Another popular way to get mail on the road is to anticipate where you will be on a particular date; then have your mail sent to that town's post office. Your mail forwarder addresses the package to, (for example):
Joe Smith
c/o General Delivery
Anytown, USA 99999
When you arrive in the town, go to the post office counter and show the clerk your ID, and ask if you have any general delivery mail waiting. But how do you find the ZIP codes for the post offices where you will be?

Post office locator. Go to this site; leave the street address blank, then type in the city and state. You will get the ZIP code, plus the physical location of the post office, so you can find the post office when you arrive.  Tip: use a small town.  If you use a large town, "general delivery" mail may go to a branch other than the one you selected.

Mail forwarding links

Mail forwarding can be temporary or permanent.  While using a mail forwarding address does not automatically change your state of domicile, many full-time RVers will opt to become legal residents of this state.  For this reason, I am showing the state after each mail forwarder.  While Texas and Florida are not the only states with no state personal income tax, they are popular choices of most mail forwarders.
