full time mail service

I'm looking for feedback on America's Mailbox forwarding service in SD for full timers. Comments would be appreciated.

I've used them since Aug 2013 with zero issues. They are very helpful and responsive. I haven't seen any bad reviews, which is true of just about all of the forwarding services. I only wish they offered a service of scanning your mail and making it available electronically. Not a big enough deal for me to switch though.

I don't think you'll be disappointed with America's Mailbox. We're full timing and have used them for over 2 years with no problems. They make our annual vehicle registrations very easy, and their option to "refill" our account from our credit card when it gets low means we don't have to worry about getting bills from them. They just started offering vehicle insurance, although I haven't completed my comparison with my current carrier and don't know how competitive they are. Good luck!

Another positive vote for Americas Mailbox. We have used them for 2 years with no problems.

I've had them for about 8 months, so far so good. We will be going to Box Elder around September to get our license and registration done.

Thanks everyone. Has anyone had issues with setting up SD domicile with SD tags but still having the original state drivers license until you can get there for a SD driver license? I mean if LEO pulls u over is it an issue are they confused?

We were told by America's Mailbox that we were not required to get SD driver's licenses until our CA licenses expired. Although we were never pulled over, we crossed into and out of Canada several times with SD plates and CA licenses without any problems. When asked, we explained our situation and they seemed fine with it. We went to get our SD licenses only when ours were about to expire.

Be aware of one thing we learned: Since I was familiar with the Sioux Falls area we got our licenses there, but I found out that we could not register to vote there because Box Elder is in a different county. If you care about being registered to vote, be sure to go to Box Elder to spend the night and take care of everything.

We have 2 vehicles and our licenses registered in MI ... and one car that is registered in CA. The 2 vehicles from MI have Progressive MI insurance and the one from CA has Progressive CA insurance. Yep makes for an interesting time sometimes, Yes the insurance company knows about the different states and they are fine with it, they have lots of people that have to do it that way for various reasons. And we are full timers and yes the MH has full timers insurance as we wanted to make sure everything was covered correctly just in case anything happened.

Thanks everyone. House sold this week and we will be executing our FTing plan. One more question. Can I own real property for occasional stays in one state but be a SD domiciled resident as a full-time RVer?
