Do I have to be a Florida resident to use MyRVmail?


No. Residency in Florida is an option that can be established at a later time. A majority of travelers use our physical address as a mailing address only. This arrangement works well if you wish to maintain your home state residency and need mail forwarding services while you travel.

How does your mail service work?


Once you receive your physical address, along with your personal mailbox number (PMB #), you may make a temporary or permanent change of address at your local post office. Your items would then be forwarded to MyRVmail in Crestview, FL, where it would be held until you have provided us with a forwarding address.

How does MyRVmail receive my mail?


Full time travelers can simply fill out a USPS permanent change of address first with their local post office, then slowly start contacting friends, family and companies directly with your new permanent address. Part time travelers will need to submit a USPS temporary forwarding with an arrival date back at home.
