Painless TX residency?

So I will arrive in TX a week before I start my job there, and I just realized, it would be a lot better if I was already a TX resident. Otherwise, I will have to use my East Coast address for all the legalese at my job. Should I join Escapees or some other group to walk me through the process? What kind of paperwork should I plan to have? Or do I need to work there for a bit, before I can become a resident? I was just thinking, all my work paperwork is going to reference my last East Coast home, unless I do this.

Painless? We moved several times and it was always a pain.

Did you read through what the Escapees have online? I would look at that and see if that will work since you will be working, I assume full-time, and probably not in that county.

I can make a guess of how I would approach it. Do you know what RV park you will be staying at and whether or not they would accept mail for you? We moved to our current city and stayed in an RV park while we looked for a house. We got a PO Box and the Post Office, requiring a local street address, allowed us to use the RV park address. I would definitely see what the RV park might have to offer if you know which you'll be staying at since you will set up permanently, more or less, for a longer length of time.

Not sure by what you mean as resident as to how long you will be here. If you are moving then you have 30 days to transfer your car and trailer. If you Google Texas DMV or anything be careful on about the first ten items that pop up as they are not the true site. (makes me mad they do that). Its not hard to go through and not sure where you are moving. BUT welcome to the great state of Texas. This link is a real DMV site. There are 17 counties that require emissions test- the rest dont. I live in the country so it doesn't bother me.

I don't know what kind of work you will be in, but most employers require a current local physical address. In short, a P.O. Box or a Private P.O. Box usually won't make the cut.

It wouldn't hurt to ask Human Resources how this is usually handled with their company.
