your taking Lenny's response out of context. he was replying to the big outfits that cater to RV's that provide insurance. at least that's how I interpreted it. highdesertranger

don't listen to UNINFORMED Nay-Sayers
that was my experience before a user here asked "can an ins co deny ur claim based on a mail drop address- EVEN THOUGH they have been accepting your payment"

this is a great point- and from now on I PERSONALLY would not insure with ANY mail drop address unless i have communication IN WRITING stating that address is LEGIT 

we all know ins co will use any excuse to deny and the more $$$s the harder they will look!!!

I know the DMV in Arizona told me flat out that I needed a real residential address and if I tried to use non residential address that it might work at first but a soon as they found out they would suspend my license without notifying me first.   this was for a Real ID they didn't give me a choice it was Real ID or nothing.  this seems strange to me because someone else went to a different DMV about the same time and they gave them a regular drivers license.
and yes I know it's not called the DMV in Arizona but something else,  that I can't recall at the moment. highdesertranger
YES until about 2 yrs ago when i retired i used a UPS store in Mississippi for everything (of course i always used Apt# NOT Box# [i know gray area])- but it worked for everything= drv lic & registration & insurance & voter & banks & employer & etc. etc. etc.- i even had a few speeding tickets one of those i appeared in court-
BUT reading all these comments i sure am glad i am now retired with a standard address where i park my car and lay my head!!! no more GREY BS!

Well, like I said, I hope y'all have a Plan B. You'll need it.

EDIT: PS--trying to read half-literate screeds in ALL CAPS makes my head hurt.

Pennsylvania did not give me any choice. (Even worse, PA made me go through all the Real ID Act requirements--then didn't give me a Real ID, because they didn't have any available. So when I tried to visit the CDC Museum, they wouldn't let me in because I didn't have the little star on my license.  (sigh) Apparently my PA license will be Real ID when they make me renew in 2019.

Under the Act, all states have the option to offer non-Real ID, but I've not heard of many that actually do. Apparently not many states want to bother with all the extra hassle of it--and besides it's likely I think that in the future the Federales will remove that option anyway.

Well, there's no point in listening to somebody who quite clearly knows nothing about the topic. (shrug)

Everyone has to be Real ID compliant by 2020. So if you don't know what it is now, you will in a short while.......

Keep in mind whether a given address is accepted or not is up to each company / agency you deal with.

Completely separate from DMV / Real ID, wish is just one single example.

Just because some company / bank / insurance etc accepts it this year does not mean they will next year, nor that a different outfit will tomorrow.

Those who seek a long-term universal solution should use a true residential S&B home address, preferably owned by a stable trusted friend or family.

No matter what a commercial service may promise, remember it's not up to them. If the local government has a court affidavit supported procedure like some Florida counties do for those living on boats, then great, further information on those would be appreciated.

None of this is to imply any problems "lying", that issue is irrelevant.

The point afaic is to make my digital footprint look as much as possible like a normal S&B dwelling wage slave citizen.

No arguing trying to make the bureaucracy care about logic and real life, feed the forms what they're used to, stamp stamp, ere's the check now on your way.

And no, insurance won't refuse to pay, unless your use of the fake address was material to you actually having fraudulent intent.

No, last I checked 18 states did.

And a permanent option, just means use your passport.
