I was just noticing that my drivers license needs renewed. If you don't have a stick house and are full time RV'er, what do you use as an address for your license? Also, if you want to change your residency from one state to another, how do you go about doing that?? Just started Full Timing last year and these might be stupid questions but just trying to learn the ropes!!!

Thanks.....

We selected Texas to be our legal "domicile". Our licenses, registrations, insurance, mailing address, etc. are all in Livingston, TX. We use the mail service of Escapees RV Club. They have a booklet on their website on how to "Become a Texan". www.escapees.com

We use St. Brendan's Isle and have used tham for nearly 9 years.

That gives you a FL address and legal domicile and FL also has no State Income Tax.
They will guide you through the process...

We have been with My Home Address, Emery, South Dakota since late 2004 and could not be more happy with their service. No state income, property or wheel tax, no vehicle testing and licensing fees for your vehicles can not be beat! They will forward all mail at your direction, or you can set up a mailing schedule. You will have a street address, which becomes your "domicile". They are great to deal with.

Should you decide to go with MHA, please use my PMB#. Hey, I may as well get credit for the referral. B)

How does that work for you all for income tax purposes? Like, I think that using that Texas address would be great, and so would something in Florida, as those are two that have low/no income tax right?

Texas, Florida, South Dakota, and others have no state income tax. :)

The key for staying "legal" is to have everything in the same state. Drivers license, vehicle registration and insurance, voter registration, mailing address, etc. This will create your "legal domicile". You can still own property elsewhere, but don't live in it.

We use Your Best Address out of Sioux Falls SD. They also give us a street address. We register our vehicles through them and on line, you only have to go back into the state once every 5 years to renew DL. We have all through them and have had no issues.

From one who is a real Texan, this article is lacking. It does not mention the requirement to ditch pig BBQ in favor of beef BBQ or that Tex-Mex is a required food staple. It is a requirement for residency, even on paper, that you know what city the Alamo is in. It does not mention that a cowboy hat, jeans and boots is formal attire -even in church. The speed limit is 70-75 mph on almost all roads, and if you drive in the left lane going less you probably won't get to your destination. There is no warning that if you use that New York salsa instead of pico de galo, we will "get the rope."

On a serious note, be advised that a Class B driver's license, with road test, is required by state law if your RV is over 26,001 pounds. You will have to physically come back to the state to get the required inspection sticker for your vehicles. If you are at least a 60% disabled vet you can get a license plate for your rig for only $3. If you are a Texas CCP holder it is recognized in 34 states.
