RE: Late Snowbirding/ full timing

I've found that Campground Reviews.com is a good source for locating potential campgrounds in all 50 states. Just click on the state you want to focus on and you'll find the previously reviewed campgrounds along with their websites, etc. Plus you get input from real campers rather than just looking at their websites. I used this prior to our first snowbirding trip to Florida in 2013. Start your research, keep track of those potential places you might want to contact for the time period you're looking for. Good luck! https://www.campgroundreviews.com/

RE: Any RV parks left in RGV?

Parks having a steady income is obviously important for their bottom line and potentially their survival. We snowbird in Florida and have for 9 seasons. One thing that my wife & I have noticed the past few years is that more and more people are living year round in the park we've stayed at most of the time. Our park isn't age restricted so there are a few families now residing there in RVs. The housing shortage, cost of homes, etc. is driving some to just purchase an RV and live in a park full time. I assume some of this is due to the fact that lot rent and utilities, if any, are cheaper than owning a home or even renting a home.

RE: Bedroom door

I leave the bedroom door open, but use a door wedge on the bottom so the door doesn't swing when moving.

RE: Suggestions for rest of Florida trip in Feb

If you're lastly in the Tampa area & eventually heading north from there you might want to check out Florida's Nature Coast. It's 1-2 hours north of Tampa along the Gulf. The two towns you would want to research for camping are Homosassa and Crystal River. Do some research on the various campgrounds in those areas. We stay at Rock Crusher Canyon in Crystal River, but there are several campgrounds in the area. Some are west of U.S.19 and border the Homosassa River or the Crystal River, while our CG is a few miles east of 19, not far from the local airport. The Nature Coast isn't a beachy area although there is a small beach west of CR on Halls River Rd. Don't take your RV out there. This area is known for their manatees, kayaking, fishing, bike trails, and is more rural than you'll find along the Atlantic or south of I-4. The seafood joints are always good. Suggested route from south of Tampa would be I-75 north to Brooksville exit and follow 98 westward to U.S.19 and then north.

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

We are 80+% sure to be heading back to Florida after Thanksgiving barring any unforeseen situations. We're in a more rural area of FL and feel we can lay low down there just as easily as here in Michigan. In fact, being able to get out and exercise in the fresh, and warmer, air is better for us than being indoors much of the time in the northern colder climate.
