RE: Cell phone use in Canada

Verizon allows you to call Canada and Mexico for NO additional charge. And no plan to sign up for. Data too, this is the plan I have and the best signal to in most places.

RE: Looking to try RGV next year

You might like the area just West of Mission on Bentsen Palm Drive. Several parks here at various cost levels as low as $200.00 a month for a longer stay. We are 2 miles from the World Birding Center, about 3 miles from the National Butterfly Center and on a paved bicycle trail. Close to the freeway but far enough so you don't see or hear it. Many park activities and other parks have many of their activities open to residents of nearby parks. Just barely rural but close to everything, also day trips to Mexico and the beaches of South Padre Island.

RE: Snowbird bang for buck: parked fiver or park model?

A used park model would likely cost less unless the annual park rent was very high. Get one several years old as they depreciate just like a RV only not quite as fast or deep. Many parks here in south Texas have annual rates less than $200.00 a month. You can buy a good used park model here for $10,000. - $25,000 or even less if you want to do a bit of work. You can have a park model moved and re set for less than $2000 and that includes moving the shed and awning too. Just be sure you like the park and area.

RE: Those pesky 180 days

Not sure this is right, I think a bit more research is needed.

RE: Turn up the heat, would ya.

I know it's way too soon, but I'm starting to get homesick. As nice as a winter that we've had, for me it's time to be back in a real S&B again. With all those creature comforts, and hobbies it allows. I'm guessing I'm alone on this one. What??? Must be a troll.

RE: Buy or Rent

We rented first, then bought when we found what we liked but definitely rent first.

RE: Home Base for Winter or Summer

Agree, there are only 3 or 4 good snowbird States and only the southern most parts of those states if you want really warm winters. Hundreds of places north to explore in the shoulder seasons and Summer.

RE: Home Base for Winter or Summer

I'll throw in one more thing that isn't so obvious when you're working. Most want to travel when they retire. RV'ing is just one form of that. A mobile RV sunbird has a much larger area to explore during their summer travel time. A mobile RV snowbird needs to stay below I10 (roughly) during a large amount of their travel months. Fun for the first few winters (it's great) but you run out of places to explore unless you're into really deeply exploring a state.

RE: Why hardly any posts?

Ask questions, share experiences start new threads, stimulate the discussion. But it is true posts are way down. The novelty has wore off.

RE: Canadian Dollar

...The other thing we notice at this time of the dip is that some parks offer reductions to Canuks, the park we are at offers 5% off for Canuks and I understand some parks offer Canuks "at par" rates. If you do some planning, the hit isn't as bad! RV Parks offering Canuks at par with USD aren't savvy entrepreneurs. The expenses for utilities and other services for upkeep won't offer such discounts for their services...not at over 30 percent discount. As the CDN $$ had diminished in value is reflected in the past year or so. This reminds me of a joke about a couple of fruit vendors selling their produce the same amount they paid for their ware. At the end of the day, they were overjoyed having sold all their stuff so they decided to buy another truck so they could load more and sell more persimmons. I would avoid that RV park like a plague who runs this business model. A vacant RV lot generates 0 dollars, a lot rented at 30 per cent off generates $$$, rent 30 of your vacant lots and it adds up to big $$$. Your real estate taxes and insurance as well as many other costs remain the same, sounds like a smart move to me. You may also generate loyalty and have return business at full price in future years.
