Our Dream Came Through...

After many years of dreaming of owning a motorhome our dream finally came true. We just bought a 2005 Tiffin Phaeton 40'. Hubby is still working so we are using this to live in and travel with his job. Most places we will stay for about 4-6 months and I was wondering about getting our mail. Any ideas on this?
We can't wait to get started. Hope to meet many of you along the way.

Congratulations on the new rig. I am sure you will enjoy it. We fulltime and have our mail sent to our daughters house. She keeps an eye on what comes in and calls us if it is something important so I am not a good one to answer. But this group on the forum is always are helpful and friendly and you will get an answer soon. Happy travels!

Hi and welcome to the forum! Congrats on your new dream rig. I love those coaches and I'm sure you'll be very happy with the outstanding support you get from Tiffin.

There are a number of mail forwarding services out there. We use Escapees but we went full time, sold our house in California and became "Texans"... where Escapees is based. If that's what you're looking for then I would recommend them highly.

Best of luck.

I see two ways, First is a mail forwording company. They will collect your mail and forward it to a local PO when you give them a call. Second is if you have a close by relative, send your mail to either a PO box or to their address and let them send it on to you once a week or so.
Last you might simply look into paying all your bills on line and go totally paperless for your bills. Most CC companies would prefer you to go paperless. So this option might the least painless for all concerned.

Good point on the getting everything possible to be paperless. IMO that's a MUST... although there is still a need to be able to get "other stuff". We would sometimes go 2 months without having our mail forwarded.

In a couple years, when I head out full-timing, like now, I will be auto-pay for all bills. But....I will want my magazines. True West (I highly recommend it), Motorhome, AARP, Goodsam, etc. I like the paper versions to carry in places I will be sitting for awhile (like Dr. office, barber, car wash, etc).

Escapees looks great.

Congratulations! We joined the RV life in July when we sold our sailboat and purchased a 2004 Phaeton. We've used St Brendans Isle for our mail forwarding service for several years www.sbimailservice.com.
They do a very good job.
