Another issue to consider is identification in your wallet to be attached to your driver’s license. Since, as a full time RVer the address on your drivers license most likely isn’t where you are located, a card should be made up that lists the RV Park you are staying in, a contact number for the park office, a contact number for a family member, and a notation as to the pets you have traveling with you. On longer RV Park stays I have decided I’ll ask the office about keeping a key to our rig during our stay, as well as, provide them with a contact’s information. None of us want to think about such unpleasantness, but as travelers living amongst strangers it would be wise for us to have at a minimum current identification information on us, emergency access to our rigs, and an informal directive including contacts placed where it can be easily found.
In regards to Wills I’ve done some minimal research and it appears that creating a basic Will isn’t as complicated as I had assumed. We plan to put something together with the idea that something is better than nothing in making our wishes known. Here are some tidbits of advice I picked up:
1. A totally handwritten Will is legal, as long as it is clear that it is a Will.
2. A Will should be all handwritten or all typed. No mixing of the two!
3. Generally spouses have their own wills that mirror each other.
4. A Will requires two witnesses to your signature.
5. Wills do not have to be notorized.
6. Wills can be signed and witnessed in a state other than your residency.
