Sorry. Anyone who tells you traveling in Mexico today is safe and hassle free is simply naive.

We are on a boat here -- not in an RV -- but I think traveling in an RV would be fine. The only caveat would be that many roads have very big speedbumps on them. Drive carefully, as a lot of the speedbumps aren't marked. The toll roads don't have speedbumps.

Mike and Terri Church have written books about RVing in Mexico and they were in San Miguel de Allende in a truck camper for a month or more in Feb/march this year... They give reviews of the RV parks they stay in on their blog:

Rolling Homes Press
Mike & terri are personal friends, great couple

Have you tried it? If not you are giving an opinion on something you have no personal experience on.

For the last 2 years we have taken our 5 year old granddaugher down there & put her in preschool for 2 months.

Safer than Connecticut.

You're not staying the right places in Arizona if you're bored. There is so much going on around Tucson or Phoenix in the winter you'd have a hard time keeping up.

We like Mexico as well but there are causes for concern. You also never want to have an accident or break down and need repair to a truck or RV in Mexico.
I guess it a is a matter of opinion, but I tried snowbirding in Az and I was bored stiff. I agree about the RV parts, you want to take some basic stuff with you.
