  1. My understanding the current issue in FL is not just voting but allocation of money in the counties based on the number of residents. A local county to where mail services are located are saying the county is getting money for residents that spend no time in that county
  2. Sounds like any new applications are on hold. Don't know anything else.
  3. It came from St Brendans Isle mail forwarding service in Florida to their customers. The Carrs are also following this for Escapees. There has been events leading up to this. https://www.sbimailservice.com/
  4. Just saw this......Something to keep in mind if you are thinking about using Florida for your health insurance. The Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle Department is currently reviewing their requirements for registering vehicles/vessels and the issuance of Florida Driver’s Licenses to individuals who live full time in their RV’s or Boats. During this period, they have suspended issuing new Drivers Licenses or registrations to individuals who utilize a mail forwarding service for these purposes.
  5. Since the type of insurance offered in a particular state changes every year, it is hard to make health insurance options your primary reason for picking a domicile. I think you should have some expectation to have to return to the state of domicile just in case that is required for whatever reason as state regulations or inspections and licensing could change. Since I primarily spend my time as far away from FL as you can be, it just doesn't seem the best option for me and everyone will be different.
  6. There is a separate category that discusses alot of the health options. Kyle from RVer heatlh insurance or healthsherpa.com can give you some advice as well. If you travel out of state that is the most difficult part o any insurance. Even in state providers are more and more limited as providers leave networks. It is hard to stay within one hospital system or the MD you like.
  7. I meant to say 1996 Roadtrek I bought used. I traded for $5000 and I am sure they sold it for at least $8,000. There are good deals on Roadtreks right now because the company has just gone out of business unless they find a new buyer. I bought mine new and it was a good deal at $85,000.
  8. Good prices on Roadtreks with the company going out of business. Check out Sunshine state RV in Gaineville FL. They deliver
  9. I am on my second Roadtrek. I purchased the first 1996 210 Popular used with 86,000 and traded it with 222,000 for a new one in 2016 190 Popular when I sold my home. I wanted a used one buy could not find one (I wanted one with the 6 year warranty - hopefully that might still be honored if the company is resurrected). I live in it fulltime with a kitty and would not want to do it with a second person. I spend alot time workamping in the national parks.....Big Outdoors If I had a second driver I would have kept the old one and left it is Alaska for trips there without having to drive the long trip from the lower 48
  10. Worked in Medora ND for the Medora Foundation 2 summers. Mosquitos were not bad. Windy yes and very hot
  11. For those people who want to plug into an outlet can someone post where you get the adapters. My neighbor is interested in one. My Class B has used it for 2 years plugged into my dash and I love it
  12. I am not Medicare age yet but trying to educate myself on supplements. It looks to me like some supplements are only offered in certain states like the new MSA medicare savings account plans. It looks like WA my domicile state does not offer these yet anyway. Also do Medicare Advantage supplement plans and some $0 plans restrict where you get services?
  13. It is my understanding that each insurance company would have their own regulations for off exchange plans. healthcare.gov only covers the exchange plans and regulations. In my experience an HMO has a much more restricted service area resident requirement. Also an EPO may have the same issue. I think you would have to speak in person to the insurance company
  14. I live in WA when I am not traveling in Chimacum near Port Townsend. It is a 55+ RV park for leaseholders but I do think you can rent monthly but it is time limited. I live in my RV in the winter in WA no problem with cold or moisture. It is a Class B Roadtrek van. It is nice to park the RV and walk on the ferry in Bainbridge island to commute to Seattle. I have parked at the casino and taken their shuttle or the bus to the ferry terminal.
  15. I had a home in WI and legal domicile and workamped in WY for a short period of time and was told by my insurance company and ACA that I should establish insurance in WY for the 3 months I was going to be there. My insurance in WI said I was out of their service area. I was told by some that I should have hidden this info from the insurance company. I used a general delivery address in WY. I would think you need to establish healthcare where you intend to use the healthcare. If like me you only need preventive services once a year that is where I have my insurance and it is not my legal domicile but I do have land in that state and an address of a relative.
