If I were wanting to "winter" in NM in a RV, I would consider buying a NM State Park annual pass. With it in hand, I would spend as long as they would let me at the southern state parks. Moveing on to a new one when the time is up. I have read that if a park is no busy, they have let people stay longer than the written rule. Here are some I'd use:

City of Rocks State Park City

Oliver Lee State Park would be a very good one. Lee

Pancho Villa State Park good one but is in Columbus next to Mexico

Caballo Lake nice place very near Elephant Butte Lake also nice place, did a lot of camping there when we had a boat & Percha Dam nice place on Rio Grande, near Caballo Lake

Leasburg Dam State Park near Las Cruces, nice desert camping or by the Rio Grande

Manzano Mountains very nice camping, higher country early in season maybe.

Oasis should work, on to do list; not too far from Bottomless Lakes not made it to it yet, on my to do list, good early in season.And also on the east side of the state, Brantley Lake on my list to do by Carlsbad, colder over there.

Rockhound not a pretty site but if into rockhounding a neat place by Deming.

Storrie Lake nice place near Las Vegas, NM early in season

Sugarite Canyon by Raton, maybe very early in season only, up north.

Sumner Lake also east side of the state, on my to do list

Not State Parks but neat:
Valley of Fires Recreation Area & BLM Campground Fires

The Three Rivers Petroglyph Site & BLM Campground Rivers

Datil Wells BLM Campground Wells

Thanks everyone for your posts. I see a lot of places to check out also I had not realized it was as cold as most of you have stated. Something else for me to check out. My plan would be to arrive in september leave the RV at a yearly site and drive home for the holidays and back to NM after them. While in NM I could do some traveling and see the western part of america. Thanks again

When you go home for xmAs and your return if you are north of I-10, good luck and prepare to spend a day or so stuck in your auto. (I might be stretching it a little, but maybe not).

Not as cold as Upstate New York.[emoticon] Our ideal location at the crossroads of Interstate 10 and 25 brings visitors into contact with 72 holes of spectacular year-round golf, unique special events, historic attractions such as Old Mesilla - not to mention world-class Mexican food! Las Cruces also blends a unique variety of attractions, culture, historical sites and superb year-round weather with 350 days of sunshine per year!!

I believe WTTCS is refering to the often poor to bad weather between NM and NY.

I believe your plan could work.

September to mid-December weather should be pleasent even in the northner part of the state.
Good Luck!
