Well my husband and I want to start the rv living full time we live in Va have found a place with a membership to stay there 6 months during the summer months but we are having a hard time finding a place in the south for the winter.

Guess that would make us snow birds lol learning the new terms of rv slang ... Any suggestions, can't afford the expensive resorts looking for something very reasonable ...ok cheap probably for the months of Nov through March or April. Don't want to move to different sites thanks.

Cheaper places to stay
by: Bob Fairhope Alabama

I had gotten down here around the first of this year 2014 and found places to stay for under $500 and some as low as $300 they don't advertise.

So when get down here in this area anyway you have to look.

I stayed almost one year at an "Old Florida" campground called "Linger Lodge". If you get your own electricity set up it was very cheap.

Thanks everyone for your help, we are still looking.

The work camp idea is good but we want to stay on the East coast so if you know of anything keep in touch.

Full Timing RV

It really depends on where you want to go down south. Okeechobee, Florida has lots available as low as $220 plus electric which can be as much as $100 per month. The easiest way is to pick a state and then go on line and see what is available.

We have wintered for the past two years, at the ROCK'N E RV PARK, near Coldspring, Texas. I love it there. It has very friendly staff, the owners are great, and its reasonable. We paid $400 a month for full hook ups.

Their phone number is 936-653-8024 or look up thee website or email them at rocknervpark --at-- If ya end up going there tell everyone Kay said Howdy!!!!

Affordable Snow-Birding in Sunny FLA
by: Gracie

I am an intrepid snowbird myself having recently retired. I am also a born 'n raised Floridian (rare species). Currently, I am traveling from state park to state park and finally enjoying the camping experience here, escaping from the mosquitoes and insufferable humidity in air conditioned luxury this time of year.

Since you are new to the experience here AND the tourist prices that many rv parks demand, let me suggest that you pick a town, stay in one of our fine state parks while you shop around and/or utilize many of the great resources offered by a membership to Good Sam, Passport America, AAA, etc.

You may or may not find your dream location your first winter, but I guarantee you will enjoy the beauty that is Florida and all the fine folks you meet along the way! Best of luck in your quest and welcome to fulltiming!
