Virtual Mailbox?

We are planning our move to Portugal from the US and are wondering about setting up a "Virtual mailbox" or the like in order to have a stable address for the Visa application. We will be traveling around quite a bit in the first few months after we arrive, likely in an RV, and won't have a physical address for quite some time. We don't know anyone in Portugal as of yet, so can't ask a friend for the favor. I can't seem to find much online. We are using an immigration service who will be "responsible for our housing" to cover the visa rules on showing a lease, etc. so we don't need to worry about that. Any tips would be appreciated!

I don't know but I'm *following this thread* as I'd be interested to see the ideas people come up with.

Hello, we are doing the same and I used these links to do a bit of research.   For us we are considering picking one with an address in Florida to change our state residency and reduce state tax liability.

Thanks! We will likely do one of these for our address in the US but since we are supposed to have an address in portugal while we await our Residency Card, I'm hunting for something in Portugal. I have yet to find anything in Portugal for Virtual Mailboxes. Anyone else?
