I currently have mail forwarded to the RV Park. However, on Aug 8 I no longer can have it forwarded. I tried to change my address to the RV Park but it says you can't have mail delivered to a business address. How do I get around this?

We had a mail forwarding service through Escapees RV Club and we picked a small post office to have our mail sent via General Delivery - even in Alaska. No problems in 16 years and got it via Priority in 2-3 days....5 days in Alaska. We moved around and didn't stay in one park. It worked for us.

The post office will only forward Mail from a residential address. Forwarding to the RV park counts as a commercial address and you can't forward from there to another address.

Just make sure that the post office accepts general delivery mail. Not all do. Usually, if it is a single post office in a town, then they accept it but if multiple post offices are located in town, usually the main one accepts general delivery. A simple call will let you know if they accept general delivery mail. We find this a good option as many campgrounds we stay at do not allow for postal mail delivery. Just bring ID where you go to pick up your mail. We do use a mail forwarding service as we are not stationary and our mail is kept there until we are ready for it and inform them of where we want it forwarded to.

For 3 years we had mail at the rv park which was forwarded from a commercial business.
