  • Ask her? Or mail it there and if it is'nt a valid address then you will get it back.

  • It will get there, but if she doesn't have a PO box, i'm sure they will not hold it, but I could be wrong. goodluck.

  • I would try just to see if it would.
    My mom mailed stuff to my grandparents(dads side) back in the early 70's and couldn't remember the address number so she drew a map on the back of the envelope and it got there!!!

  • If she's in an RV park there may be an office or she may have a number for her space. My mother-in-law has lived in an RV park before, and she always had an address with the name of the RV park and a space #.

  • You can always try it. She might have them holding her mail for a short time for her to pick it up. My mom did that once and everything got to her fine. If they cant get it to her then they will send it back to you.

  • i asked if it was a park and she said its just a friends lot that they park on. and they cant use the address. she does work but i wont be able to send her stuff there. when i want to get pics to her i order them online to go to the closest walgreens or walmart.

  • yup,there are alot of places that only require star route written on them.Local post offices all over deliver mail,but general delivery usually means they will pick it up at a local post office.
