  1. We just set up our Florida domicile yesterday, following the directions provided by escapees. it was very easy! The folks at the dmv/tax collector office were very nice and knew exactly what to do. ( we were prepared with passports, ss cards, escapee letter, etc...) Drivers licenses took about 20 minutes. We almost forgot to file our “declaration of domicile “ with the county clerk. We had one of the local clerks notarize the form, then paid $10 to file it. Everyone was very nice. notes, the guide seems a bit out of date, but we got it done, ( certification form is no longer needed and voter registration is now done when you get your license) no electronics are allowed in the court records office, so leave your phones, iPads, etc in the car. after, we drove to Sumter oaks rv park. It was ... just ok. The office staff was nice but referred us to Livingston Texas for all escapees questions. feel free to ask me any questions!
  2. Anyone use an attorney in the Escapees' Bushnell, FL, area that you would like to recommend? We need to update our wills, powers of attorney, etc. and are looking for someone in the area to do so. Anyone that can recommend a fulltime RVer friendly firm or person?
  3. We have been residents of Washington state for the past couple of years. I am on Medicare, but my child-bride is only turning 60 this year so she has a few more years to go before she can qualify. She has been on a PPO there, but we were notified that the insurance company won't be renewing the policy for 2018. Since that was the only PPO available to us, we are looking for coverage. An HMO is pretty dicey for full-time RVers due to emergency coverage outside of our home area, where we are pretty much all the time. We are currently looking to change residence to Florida so we can take advantage of the BSBC EPO that is available in Bushnell, FL. Does anyone have experience 'moving' to the Escapees park, getting set up as residences and obtaining insurance from BCBS? Do you have any experience using the insurance out of state? I know the deductibles and co-pays double when out of network, but at least there is still coverage. When we moved to Washington from Texas, getting established as residents was easy, as far as the state was concerned and getting auto insurance. Blue Cross was more difficult for someone who doesn't have utilities or property. Will we be running into the same thing in Florida?
  4. I am in my early 50s and my current domicile does not have decent national healthcare options on ACA. In researching Florida options, I have found Tallahassee (Leon County) to be the best option for me for ACA. The mail service there is called "Traveling Mailbox." As I understand it, the Traveling Mailbox fees are $15/mo (for specific number of mail pieces) plus the postage to forward mail, plus there is a $1 fee to hold pieces of mail for more than 60 days. Does anybody have experience using Tallahassee as a domicile, or see any immediate "cons" to it? I am guessing it's a bit harder to fly in and out of than some of the eastern state locations.
  5. Hi, I am new here and am looking to start full time at the start of the year. I had hoped to find a workamping position in mid to southern Florida. I guess that maybe wishful thinking. If I instead look to just rent a space from Jan-Feb is that a likelihood?. Im having a difficult time to do any searches. Checking availability almost always requires a phone call and I do most of my research at night. Is there a way to do a blanket search of an area for any kind of available spots. Thanks for any advise. Curious Craig
  6. I currently reside (leased "sticks and bricks") in the Naples, Florida area... so I am already a "Florida resident" and have my domicile here. I am considering going fulltime RV about July of next year, and see no reason that I wouldn't want to continue maintaining Florida as my domicile. But, as always, the devil is in the details... 1.) As I begin full-timing, I will necessariy no longer maintain a "sticks and bricks" residence here. My thought is to contact a mail-forwarding firm such as St. Brendan's Isle here in Florida and "move" from my existing Naples address to their physical address (in a different Florida county) as my Florida domicile and for forwarding services. Vehicle registration, insurance, etc would also be relocated to the forwarder's address. It's a process, but not a terribly complicated one. 2.) By reason of a disability, I am eligible for Medicare before age 65 and currently am on original Medicare and purchase a Humana "High Deductible Plan F" supplement policy that works very well for me. Such policies (for pre-65 Medicare users) are not available in all locations (especially out of Florida), and certainly not at the reasonable prices offered here. I have already verified that the same Humana High-Deductible Plan F supplement is available to me at the St Brendan's Isle physical location (at an even lower price than I currently pay), so once again I should simply be able to "move" from Naples to the St. Brenda's Isle physical address and notify the insurance company of my "move". MY CONCERN IS THIS: How many of you Medicare users (older or younger than 65) with supplement plans have done a similar thing. Has anyone been questioned by their insurance carrier about all virtually all claims coming from out of state, etc? My understanding is that it makes no difference at all... so long as your "residence"/domicile is in a location where the policy is sold and you pay the bill, it's all good, right?.. one of the wonderful things about Medicare!. This is a key point for me. Would appreciate hearing your thoughts on this, especially anyone involved in the Medicare supplement business... Thanks! GoodolDan
  7. I just want to give some KUDOS to Blue Ox and one of their dealers. I bought a motorhome recently and it came with a Blue Ox tow bar and much of the associated parts. I only needed a base plate and wiring kit for my 2009 Scion xB. I looked it up the installation on line and saw that it was not a simple bolt on for my car as it required removal of the front fascia and some cutting with a power saw, so I quickly decided it was a job for the professionals. I contacted Blue ox by email and they referred me to their dealer in my area (Hitch and Weld of Naples, Naples FL). They are also the only dealer in the area without going to the East coast or up to Ft. Meyers so I was a little leery I was just getting a name. I also bought my base plate and wiring kit at the recent Tampa RV show from the Blue Ox exhibitor booth--it was discounted and included free shipping to my home. I was wondering if the local dealer wasn't going to be too happy I was bringing my own parts. Needless to say they were very pleasant to work with and very professional. Hitch and Weld of Naples is a Man, wife and son business that has been around a long time. Not only is the installation job very professional looking it was much cheaper than the quotes I got from some places in the Tampa area (almost 50% less in one instance) and it is the labor charges. The owner dealt with me and he was very helpful telling me to call him any time if I have any questions. So, if you are in south FL or close enough you want to see Naples or lay on the beach when you are having some work done, I think you will find the drive for your anything towing, trailer or hitch needs well worth the drive. If you live near here, this is a good company to do business with!
