RE: Looking For S. Texas Parks

take a ride over to palmview and check out the parks on Benson Palm drive. you might find something you like here. from 200 to $900 a month. be sure to check mission West, greengate Grove, Americana, and Val's country corral. they're also several others. Golden Grove is very reasonable but no pool. we are on the bike trails and state park next door. Palmview? Hmm. That's a little further west than I was planning to go, but I mapped it and it's only 25 minutes from here. We might swing out that way. Is there any particular thing you like more about that area? 1 mile off freeway so no traffic noise but easy access. Close to Bentsen Rio Grande State Park and World Birding center. Close to Mission Nature Park, Close to National Butterfly Center. Easy access to paved bike trails. 4 HEB stores within a couple miles, 3 Wal Marts within a couple miles. Good Medical care in McAllen and Edinburg. Riverside Club on the Rio Grande. 2 Big Flea and Farmers Markets close by. Less wind than lower Valley. We are in Green Gate Grove, We own our lots here but several lots for rent by owner, Office has a list. You will want to check out all the parks south of the freeway and also on Business 83, Mission West is nice. On the Rio Grande Chimney Park off South Conway and on South Inspiration Road 7 Oaks Park. Americanna on Bentsen Palm Drive, Bentsen Grove, Green Gate Grove, Golden Grove, Cheap, Large lots but no Pool or spa. Lamplighter, Privately owned lots with some for Rent by owner, Vals Country Corral, Small friendly park, salt water pool. Couple run down parks, Retama Village, Very high test. Bentsen Palm Village Resort, Hi Test, expensive. Good Luck, let us know what you find.

RE: Grrocery Delivery in Yuma?

Schwans just shut down in the Yuma area. I heard they were shutting down in the Rio Grande Valley too.

RE: Grocery and other deliveries in the Rio Grande Valley

Also forgot to mention that they deliver beer and wine from HEB. They deliver from most restaurants and have reduced and even a few that are free delivery fees. They delivered a couple weeks worth of Happy Hour supplies for us today with no delivery charge. While pickup and delivery is in progress you can communicate with the driver by phone or text to clarify what you want or approve substitutions.

Grocery and other deliveries in the Rio Grande Valley

We use a new service called Favor. You have to download their app to your smartphone. They deliver groceries, prescriptions, food, stuff from Lowe's and home Depot and pretty much anything you want. You place your order on the app and typically have it on your doorstep in one to two hours. Your delivery driver also picks your delivery like a personal shopper. We have ordered ice cream and frozen vegetables and they still come frozen. The drivers have been fast friendly and courteous. The app requires various delivery fees and includes a tip for the driver picker. We usually have an additional cash tip for the driver when they drop off the order. Occasionally they make substitutions if what you want is not available. Anyhow we have been 100% impressed and satisfied with their service.

RE: How about a RGV update

We are enroute at this time. The numbers are much improved But only due to some pretty tight restrictions. We will have Mandatory 14 day quarantine when we arrive and limited activities after that. We are in Palmview.

RE: Looking For S. Texas Parks

As said previously reservations are not required for most of the nearly 400 parks in the Valley. Come down find a place for a week or 2 and visit many parks to find a park and site you like. All sites are not created equal either. You could get an undesirable site in a nice park if you make reservations without seeing the site. Prices range from $150 a month to 900. a month + electric for longer term stays. I also suggest you check out the many parks on Bentsen Palm Drive South of Palmview. This will not be a normal snowbird year as many of the activities and entertainment will be canceled or modified due to Covid 19.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

Enough Political commentary, Snowbirding will be different this Winter. Please keep all politics out of it. Lots of good info here. I would prefer not to close or delete the thread.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

A recent Survey of South Texas Snowbirds had 33% not coming this year and quite a few wait and see. In recent years several over 55 parks dropped the age requirement and local families have moved in. There will be bargains to be had. If you plan to come for a 3 - 5 month stay I suggest you bargain for a better rate. Many parks are offering first timer discounts. Do not hesitate to ask for a better rate. Reservations are not needed or advised. Just come down, rent a spot for a week and visit many parks to find a site and park you like. There is talk in our park of moving more activities outdoors. Street Dances with distancing, Out door music and ???

RE: 2021-22 Florida and/or Arizona

Ate dirty/dust every day when we spent part of the winter in the RGV and we don't do beer bashes and potlucks. Turns out Arizona desert, especially around Phoenix, is great place to spend the winter. Loads of restaurants/shopping, lots of museums, arts centers, concerts, and Spring Training in March with all ballparks being within a 45 minute drive. As far as wind and dust goes we found AZ to have more of both but in both locations I think it will depend on the park you choose. In the Valley if you choose a park surrounded by open areas or farm fields you will have a lot of dust. If you choose a park surrounded by city or a lot of trees and tropical vegetation it won't be an issue.

RE: 2021-22 Florida and/or Arizona

Also Consider the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, Less than 1/2 the price and at least twice the fun. About 400 parks to choose from $200 - 900. a month with a 3 to 5 month stay and many first timer specials, just ask. With so many parks reservations are not needed except maybe at the cheapest and most expensive parks. I suggest just come down and rent a spot for a week and look at many parks to find what you like. So many choices in the 300. to $400. range. Most parks will have metered electric that usually runs $50. to $100 a month depending on use.

RE: Private Sale of Park Model in Texas

My wife and I are privately selling our Athens PM home that is in a Winter Texan park. I'm interested in knowing what forms and items I will need to do it properly. I'm told that if the unit is skirted and tied down there is no sales tax. I was also told the buyer and seller must furnish photo ID's. I found a form titled Trailer Verification Statement of Fact to complete. Any experiences would be appreciated. I suggest you let a good Real estate agency sell your home. Let them take care of all the procedures and legal issues . I just sold and bought a 2 houses and having a real estate agent made the experience much easier and less frustrating unless you have the legal skills and knowlege. You only need a realtor if you own the land, the park model is more like selling a car or RV. There are a couple of forms that can be picked up at the lic office or i would imagine printed online if you can find them. You will also need your title.

RE: Rio grand valley

Nearly 500 parks in the Valley. DO NOT MAKE Reservations, they are not needed. Come down, rent a spot for a week and visit many parks to find a park and site you like. I suggest the parks on Bentsen Palm Drive in Palmview. FYI This is currently a Covid 19 Hot Spot and unless it improves a lot group activities and music will be shut down. Some of the parks have also closed the pools.

RE: Wanted, Snowbird park in Big Bend area.

You must be thinking of the Rio Grande Valley, nearly 500 parks and back to back activities and music normally but it is currently a Covid 19 Hot Spot. If the virus don't subside group activities will be shut down. Our clubhouse is currently locked and we are under stay at home orders with curfews and mask orders.
