RE: Snowbird Refunds

My Texas RV Park will apply 100% of any deposit to next year as long as the reservation is changed 30 prior to expected arrival for this season. The policy is not advertised and the changed must be made by phone

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

RVMan, Our park in Texas has let us know that all deposits paid can transfer to next year without any loss of money if done 30 days prior to the reservation arrival date. This is not advertised and must be done over the phone. I suggest you contact your FL park to see what they are doing.

RE: Looking For S. Texas Parks

Since this year will be different, one item to consider is what will be open at each RV park. Parks with lots of facilities charge more money. If the facilities are closed then you are paying for something you will not receive.

RE: Looking For S. Texas Parks

Steve, The further away from the coast the warmer it is. Most Winter Texans stay inland. IMO a mid valley location is best for exploring the valley. However, once you find the right RV park there will be plenty to do and see.

RE: Grocery and other deliveries in the Rio Grande Valley

We used favor last season. They also have a web site so either a phone or computer can be used to order.

RE: Looking For S. Texas Parks

Steve, The Winter Texan area of the Rio Grande Valley runs from Rio Grande City in Star County to South Padre Island. Most of the RV parks are located from Mission to San Benito, but there are others outside of this area to the west and east of these towns. If you want to explore the area the best location in in the middle of the RGV which is the eastern part of Hidalgo County. That is where Donna and Mercedes are located. The RGV is very long and narrow so a trip from one end to the other and back is over 150 miles. VP and Llano have one location each and both are located right in the middle of what the valley has to offer in the way of events and things to do.

RE: Looking For S. Texas Parks

Steve, Both Llano Grande and Victoria Palms have older and newer sites. They are priced according to size and landscaping. IMO go for the best sites. Llano is more remote than VP so your drive off campus to get anything will be longer. Both have mid valley locations for easy exploring of the area.

RE: Looking For S. Texas Parks

OP.... To answer your questions. Very few RV resorts have golf courses. Most amenities are free or very low cost, but golf may be the exception. Only the larger, higher end parks have all the amenities. Smaller parks just have some amenities and others just a rec hall.

RE: Looking For S. Texas Parks

Victoria Palms in Donna and Llano Grande in Mercedes are two of the top parks and have everything you want. VP has a very active bike club.. You should call and ask if they have a first time special. You may need to book for a month to get a good price but do not book for more than a month so you will be able to move if you want to.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

The park I winter in has an interesting set up that could be an option for Canadians. Victoria Palms RV Resort in Donna, TX which is in the center of the Rio Grande Valley has around 1000 sites that are divided between mobile homes, park models and RVs. In addition to this there are 20 motel rooms and 100 suites. All rooms and suites are on the ground floor. The suites consist of an eat in kitchen, a living room, a bedroom and a bathroom. Donna, Texas is served by two airports in McAllen and Harlingen with service provided by American, United, Delta, Sun Country, and Southwest.

RE: Electric/non electric scooter?

Yes you can but consider that some campgrounds have rules regarding what can be used as transportation on their roads.

RE: bubble on EPDM roof by the seam

Leave it alone. Rubber roofs are put on two ways at the wall seams. The cheaper way is what you seem to have where the plywood roof meets the sidewall and a strip of gutter attaches the rubber roof to the sidewall. There is a small space that can form between the sidewall and the roof plywood. There is nothing for the roof to grab onto so as the roof ages and stretches a bit a bubble will form. The better way to cover the roof is by using a small radius piece to transition from the plywood roof to the sidewall.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

A Henry Miller article dated August 9. 2020 in the Monitor, a newspaper out of the Rio Grande Valley stated that there are 106,000 Winter Texans and 14 percent are Canadian. This is from a UTRGV research study.

RE: For Alaskans going S... is snowbirding essential travel?

Don't call, write to them. Ask for a response in writing. If the answer is yes then bring the letter with you to the border when you cross. You will then have written permission and there will be no doubt as to who said what on the phone.

RE: Trapped?

I stayed put in deep south Texas. Many fewer cases of COVID here than in my NJ summer home. Yes it is hot, but much safer. Glad I decided to stay. There is some talk that COVID does not do well in heat and humidity. If that is the case this (Texas) is the place to be now.

RE: Water dripping from New AC

Make sure all the AC vents are fully open. Check the AC fins for ice just before AC shut down. If there is ice try raising the thermostat temo a few degrees.

RE: Snowbirds In Limbo As Coronavirus Upends Travel Plans

I am currently in a Encore/Thousand Trails RV Resort. These brands are owned by Equity Life Styles (ELS). ELS has 185 RV Parks and just sent a message from their corporate offices that was shared with us by our park manager. The manager paraphrased the message from corporate and informed us that new registrations will be vetted and some will be canceled. According to corporate, some reservations have already been canceled. There was no mention of how the vetting process works.

RE: Snowbirds In Limbo As Coronavirus Upends Travel Plans

Many of the Canadians in my RV park were afraid there would be no gas to get home, that the border might be closed to them, that travel thru some states might be restricted, that RV parks might be closed, etc. Every Canadian I know of in my RV park has left. Many were given 10 days to get home before their supplemental insurance was canceled.

RE: Route from NY to NM

My son lived in NM for 7 years in two different locations. We visited him quite a bit. The best route for you is: In NJ take I-78 West to I-81 South (Near Harrisburg, PA) Follow I-81 South until it ends in TN at I-40 I-40 West to NM
