RE: Youthful 55+ parks in Arizona

Look for places that are RV only and not part of a "Retirement Community" that are mostly park models and mobile homes. Nothing wrong with those. It's the RV crew that seems to be more active and "younger" I agree, many RVers move on to a park model or mobile home as they get older but are not ready to give up snowbirding. After our 14th season as Winter Texans I see this all the time and am included in this group. So where there are a large number of park models and mobile homes the population will likely be older but most of us have started out in an RV.

Flex Tape roof repair

Has anyone used Flex Tape for an emergency roof repair? According to the advertising it can fix and repair most anything. Was just wondering if anyone has used it for a roof repair long or short term.

RE: 55+ communities

We like Mission the best, less wind, anyone who says no activities hasn't been to the valley, we danced every day, love to ride the bikes and play volleyball. Haven't been down for 3 years, miss it. Our favorite park is Benson Palms beside the wildlife park, nice place to ride the bikes. We have stayed at Victoria, Rockport and, Harlingen, but like the Mission area the best. Mc Allen is nice if you are going in to Progresso much ,but we don't mind the drive. It is Bentsen Palm Village Resort, there is another park in the area named Bentsen Palm that is older with much smaller sites.

RE: Dentists in Mexicali

I really don't know what about my ad, which clearly states I'm interested only in Mexicali, is impossible to understand. Few snowbirds use the dentists in Mexicali but many go to Dentists in Algodones so maybe the next best option.

RE: Park Model Wintering Recomendations for affordable RV Park

If you are willing to consider the Rio Grande Valley of Texas you can find many options for less than 1/2 the cost or buy your own lot and be further protected from large price increases. Warmer than most AZ locations too. Over 400 parks to choose from.

RE: Heavy Duty / Super Duty Truck as Daily Driver

F350 is our daily driver. It works, stiff ride and about 13 mpg.

RE: How full RVG

We are here now. We have so much capacity, over 400 parks I think we will have plenty of room for everyone. Most parks are less than half full now but the biggest wave comes in after Thanksgiving. The hurricane evacuees we had returned home long ago to rebuild. When you call a park for reservations most will say they are nearly full to motivate you to make reservations now. This is seldom the case. Come on down, you will enjoy the Valley and be warmly welcomed.

RE: Donna Texas opportunity

Looks nice but the cheap sites are $44 per night. And thats why a free work camper site might be a really good deal.

Donna Texas opportunity

This was in todays paper for Victoria Palms Resort. This is one of the finest parks in the Rio Grande Valley. Work Camper position to work 28 hours per week with the Activity department. Call 956-249-2266 for more info. I am not affiliated thih this park but have been there many times. It is very nice with tons of fun activities.

RE: Between Christmas and New Yr in RGV

Not sure how much time you have but it would likely take you 4 days to get here and 4 days to get back if towing.

RE: Between Christmas and New Yr in RGV

Check out the parks on Bentsen Palm Drive just west of Mission Texas, Mission West, Bentsen Grove, Green Gate Grove, Americana, Val's country Corral, or Bentsen Palm Village Resort. All will have vacancies. Near the world birding Center and the international Butterfly Park.

RE: plate taxes.

The Rio Grande Valley of south Texas has the lowest cost of living in the nation, nearly 500 RV parks and pretty nice winter weather.

RE: Are we almost there yet?

A week to go before we head out. First time ever that I could stay north. Thinking RV'ing is coming to an end for us, and maybe VRBO'ing will replace it. Might change my mind once we're on the road though. Sure would miss the freedom that an RV gives a person. What is the status of Isla Blanca remodel. If we decide to come to the Island for a week would we be better there or the KOA. We Like water view and maybe sunset view.

RE: Paying for health insurance

Medicare is the best insurance we have ever had. We were paying $1650.00 a month before we were old enough to qualify.

RE: Downsizing and simplifying

We went down from 30 ft to 21 ft. Much easier finding campsites in the state parks.
