A Good Mail Forwarding Service

We are not full timers, but like to go on RV trips during the late spring through the early fall for six to eight weeks or more at a time. Unfortunately, USPS will only hold mail for 30 days and we do not want to inconvenience our neighbors to pick up our mail. So, we plan on using a mail forwarding service to give us flexibility on when we will return from a trip. Any recommendations on good rv mail forwarding service and how willing are campgrounds to accept FEDEX packages for campers staying with them.

We do have someone that can pick up our mail but we also signed up for USPS Informed Delivery.
https://informeddelivery.usps.com/bo...o/start.action

It will allow you to know what is being delivered. We get a daily email.

Yes, it's not a forwarding/ collecting service but helps to know what is coming. Might be an option if you can find someone to grab the contents of your box once in a while.

Here is a link to the 500+ previous discussions about "mail forwarding".
The only inaccuracy that I am aware of is that one of the services has went Tango Uniform. If you read about 5 from the last few months you will have way more info than you may get in a single thread.

Thanks, My biggest concern/question is how receptive are campgrounds to receiving a FEDEX package.

Most campgrounds will accept mail and fed ex packages for you. We have never had one refuse to accept a package,

You can also have packages shipped to UPS stores or FedEx Kinko stores. I had to get a computer shipped to me for work while on the road. They just asked where the nearest FedEx shipping location was and had me go there.

IF a CG doesn't accept visitors mail then you can also do 'General Delivery' via local post office.
(Check with each specific post office to see if General Delivery is accepted. If just one post office good chance is YES. If more then one then MAIN post office usually does it)


You just have to plan ahead ...check with CG, check with UPS, check with Post Office to hedge your options
