Logistics of full timing

Our daughter and her family are planning to do some full time trailer living for the next year or so and I'm helping with the logistics. I think this has come up before, but I couldn't find the thread. We're wondering what people do about residency and everything related, like car insurance, income taxes -- even health insurance if you get it through a state. All advice is welcome.

Yes, Escapees forum has everything a fulltimer would want to know and then some. The three states mostly used are SD, FL and TX. Escapees can set up residency and mail forwarding, or mail forwarding businesses can be used.

Some RV insurance companies cover fulltimers. Health insurance can be the biggest consideration, so they need to look at that well.
