  1. need a bit of group advice, a little background to help clarify Hubs is ready for retirement date set at 8/31/2021, I will continue to work full time, my job is fully remote and will continue to be. We have been until recently been/are residents of California for our entire life. Hub is a union guy and has a pension that we believe will qualify for the exemption of California income taxes. My employer is multi-state and I can easily establish my residency in Florida for income tax purposes Mid-May we established domicile in Florida, turned in our CA CDL's, established a physical address/mailing address in Bushnell w/ Escapees, contracted w/ a family lawyer attorney in Florida to set up our estate plan, bought our Ford F450 in Florida,, found our rig (Alliance 40v13) in Texas and have secured all the proper financing for that purchase and pick it up in 2 weeks. Now we really really need to chat w/ a CPA/Tax professional who has experience helping us unravel ourselves the best way possible from California. Looking for your recommendations, Thank you! The Becks (Heather and Tim)
  2. We have a month before we move into the fifth wheel. I have been researching and have most of my questions answered. PLUS I found a good post that compares the choices we are facing. I am still undecided, and I'm asking anyone who has arrived at their domicile decision, what are one or two smaller discoveries do you wish you had known beforehand? My decisions are between Florida, Texas, and Tennessee. SD is a distant fourth. I read Health care cost completely overshadows all other costs. I think I agree, that is for 2 years at least. I know the big points, income taxes, health insurance, RV insurance, new vehicle purchase taxes, sales tax rate. (the sales tax rate in TN is high but we have no plans to be there for long stays) I would want to bring an already converted HDT "house car" into the state. Would it be very tough to do or easy if already converted? We have relatives in TN and FL but no plans to stay with them. Thank you. This was posted 3 years ago: A great topic with a good comparison chart: https://www.rvnetwork.com/topic/125374-domicile-analysis/ Comment by Lockmup specific to HDT owners: https://www.rvnetwork.com/topic/125374-domicile-analysis/?do=findComment&comment=879709 Chart: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gMs0eSHxYDoc6ff_DTcj8eqwlo4Z7YCG28D2IhkLS6Q/edit#gid=0
  3. I read this topic and it’s helpful. https://www.rvnetwork.com/topic/137485-winter-location-suggestion/ We just started our full time adventure this month. We have an HDT pulling a 36’ fifth wheel. We are looking for less expensive suggestions for wintering in the south. We only have a bit of experience with Florida, and I agree it can be buggy and crowded in most areas. I have family in South Miami which is my only interest. I wonder if Ft Meyers is less expensive than Miami area? According to many, Arizona is just about the best for weather. We have never been there. Texas either. We can find links to RV parks all week long but I’m asking for help to narrow it down if possible. thanks in advance,
  4. I plan to move to Florida Sept. 15th and initiate domicile. In Sumpter County the DMV drivers license and vehicle registration services are only available for current residents by appointment. Is it possible to register vehicle and get drivers licenses in other counties if using a Escapee’s domicile address in Sumpter county? Are there any other work around to get things done during Covid?
  5. 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!
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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
