Living & Working in Great Places
Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!
We have been traveling since 1999 and use South Dakota for everything. Alternative Resources in Sioux Falls, SD will send you information on what is needed for all your vehicles and drivers license. We use SD because the folks at the vehicle dept. for Minnehaha County are very famaliar with our full-timers needs. Also, SD has very low insurance costs for our motorhome and truck. Texas for our motorhome we would need a CDL because of the weight of the unit, where SD does not require anything more than a standard license. Best of luck and enjoy your travels,
We are full time, not just seasonal. We sold the house after trying it in the RV for increasing months over 3 years. After checking a few things out, we opted for SD. We have to go there once every 5 years to get a new driver's license. RV and car plates are handled by mail. I actually talked to the state registrar herself before we changed our legal domicile. They're very happy to have us even if we only stop by every 5 years or so.
Our "residency" is in sioux falls. We have a really good mail box service that costs us $120 for 13 mo if you pay in advance, plus postage of course. We call them when we get somewhere, and they ship our mail same day usually, overnite if we wish. they just called me to let me know the replacement credit card i've been waiting for finally showed up.
as a bonus, no state Income tax. on the downside, Verizon charges us extra for SD versus our old state.
You don't have to be an RV'er.
