RE: Any RV parks left in RGV?

Hi 2gs...if there is a decent 55+ park in the Rockport area, I haven't been able to find it. Found one deeded community at 55+ but realtor does not respond or return calls. Two others, both slide to slide. Literally, looked at one with 15" between slides. Several very nice parks in this area, Coastal Breeze is a fave, but not 55+. Update: took an overnight to the RGV! Viewed several mentioned parks here, including the famed Retama Village. It is very nice. However, the "rv resorts/parks" are mostly old, tired and 90% mobile homes. Some were neat and clean, others just scary. All friendly. Have found a couple that would do for a short time, but most are slide to slide. Rates good, but again, tired. May go back down again for a day or two and hunt some more. Definitely don't want to be on the Coastal Bend during the summer months. Even though I broke down and bought a fishing pole. ??.

RE: Any RV parks left in RGV?

Thanks Tom and Alfred.... To answer your question Tom, I'd rather, if they want full time mobile homes, that they stop calling themselves RV parks. It's disheartenong to drive into a place that looks great on their website only to find they are 90% mobile homes and bumper to bumper. Mobile homes are not RVs and they are not even Destination or park models. But you're right, the steady income is appealing to a lot of owners. Just wished they'd call it what they are. Thanks for the ideas Alfred, we'll check them out. Have heard of Victoria Palms from a couple of folks.

RE: Any RV parks left in RGV?

Thanks Scottiemom. I did look up Mission West and will check it out. I don't mind some park models or even mobiles if park is well kept. But I want some SPACE. I hate slide to slide.

RE: Any RV parks left in RGV?

Thanks for the responses, pawatt and trailernovice. I did mean McAllen...spell check strikes again. There are about 4000 places down there. ?? We are going to visit, in fact, in just a month or so. Plan is to stay in area and view. Green Gate Grove looks nice, but again, a mix of stick built, mobiles and rv lots. We'd like something age restricted to adults (55+) and a true RV Resort. Retama Village is on the radar, pricey, but might fit the bill in the end. We looked at Harlingen, same issue. All mobile home parks with "RV spaces in places". Would like to find generous sized spaces for RVs. Again we are 43' pkus long bed truck so we know we're locked out of some older parks. Brownsville is not on the plan, at this time anyway...but thanks for all the info and suggestions.

Any RV parks left in RGV?

Anyone out there with recent and firsthand knowledge regarding Mission and Mcalister areas of the RGV? Are ALL the RV parks and resorts now also mobile home parks? We cannot seem to find a nice park with activities that still caters to full time RV'ers. Even professionally managed resorts are 70% or more mobile homes. And they are packed in! The RV's get shoved into tiny little spaces with no room to breathe and slides almost touching. Any suggestions welcome and appreciated. We're looking for a full time base for our 43' rig but would appreciate storage for our travel trailer on site or nearby. :)
