We have been full-timing for 3-years, sold our home before doing so, set-up our domicile in SD and traveled since.  It was easy to do and it has worked well, however because of personal preferences and logistical reasons we are considering "moving" to WA.  Interested to hear experiences setting up a domicile in WA, suggestions for mail forward/domicile services in WA.  As it seems to be a bit more of a challenge than SD, we stopped in to a DMV to inquire about getting a drivers license, a typical first step.  What we were told is DMV will not accept an address involving a mail forwarding service, but the woman went on to say, once established they do not care what your address is. So we were thinking, if we do decide to "move" stay at a RV park for a month or two, use that as our address, then after establishing service with a mail forward service change our address.  Thanks

Not responsive to your particular questions, but note that Washington while not having an income tax does have an estate tax.  That doesn't matter when the first spouse dies, but after that or if both die at the same time it can lead to non-optimal results.

Yes we are aware, should not be a big impact for us, but still researching this.  Thank you for your input.
