Six Ways to Get Mail on the Road
There’s never been a better time to RV full-time. You can travel safely, work, and even educate your little ones remotely. However, there's one thing you might not have considered: How will you get your mail and other packages? Today, we’re sharing six ways to get your mail on the road.
On The Road Mail Options
1. Campground’s Address
If you plan to stay at a campground for a while, simply call ahead and ask if their front desk would be willing to accept packages on your behalf. Many campgrounds are more than happy to help out. Although some may charge a small service fee, it’s worth it to have your packages delivered just a few feet away from your Class A diesel motorhome.
2. Friend or Family Member’s Address
If you bought something special for your partner that you want delivered to the door of someone you trust, all you have to do is ask. Most of your loved ones will be happy to help and overjoyed to see you. You can even give them a tour of your Class C motorhome and plan future trips! If you want to spend even more time with friends and family, ask to moochdock in their driveway.
3. USPS General Delivery Service
Need a mail service you can count on? Try the United States Postal Service, otherwise known as USPS. Their General Delivery Service is a convenient way to receive mail sent via USPS. Find a participating location near you or your travel destination! Remember, put “General Delivery” in the address line, and don’t use this service for any other delivery service other than USPS. You can provide special instructions, and USPS will hold your package for up to 30 days.
4. In-Store Pick Up for UPS and FedEx
If your package wasn’t sent through USPS, don’t worry. You can choose in-store pick-up for UPS and FedEx deliveries. Luckily, these services have stores throughout the country, so you can pull your Class B motorhome into the parking lot and pick up your packages with ease. Of course, there may be fees, but they will hold your packages for a few days just in case you have delays during your road trip.
5. Amazon Lockers for Amazon Prime Members
If you have an Amazon Prime membership, then you’ll love taking advantage of the Amazon Lockers. It goes without saying, but remember, these lockers are only for Amazon packages! This is a great choice for those who want quick shipping, access to multiple locations, and no added fees.
6. Traveling Mailbox
No matter where you go in your Super C RV, you won’t have to worry about your packages getting lost in the mail when using an online mail service. A Traveling Mailbox allows you to view your postal mail online and have it scanned or forwarded to a new address. This service was created with frequent travelers in mind and has multiple positive reviews.
On the Go Motorhomes
Venetian Class A Diesel Motorhome
There’s no doubt that the Class A Venetian will exceed your expectations. You’ll have no trouble checking your mail online with Winegard® ConnecT™ 2.0 working as your Wi-Fi extender and 4G hotspot. Once you pick up your mail, you can relax and watch your favorite movie on the 55-inch TV in the living room with the Sony® BluRay® player from your plush sofa bed, Jack-knife sofa, or theater seating.
Gemini AWD Class B+ Motorhome
Gemini AWD will get you to your package pick-up location in no time with its all-wheel-drive system. The drivability features don't end there, though.
