    Drive to the place you bought the items from :)

    That's a good question though... most things can be paperless now, but I never thought about the delivery aspect (packages, etc).

    A mail place with boxes will accept all packages.

    Most people use services like Escapees RV Club the club for all RVers

    These types of services can supply you with a "homebase" address if you do not own a "stick" house. They also provide mail forwarding for full-timers.

    My in-laws were full timers for years and this is the service they used. Worked out fine.

    The Good Sam Club magazine has had several articles on this subject. As far as mail goes, yes, the recommendation was for a service that you can have your mail sent to be collected, then call up and have it forwarded on to your location when you are going to be there for a little while. If you are going to be at this for a while such that residency and vehicle registration is going to be a problem, Texas I understand is very friendly towards RV's as residents.
