What temps do you consider warm? Warm, hot, cold are all relative terms. Spent 8 years in Alaska I now consider anything over 75 to be too hot. Add FL humidity to that and it becomes unbearable.

I like TX in the winter. Kemah RV Resort Kemah RV Resort - Home is nice and the breeze off the back bay makes it bearable.

Also like seeing the locals bundled up while I'm in shorts and a t-shirt.

I've been snowbirding in my RV for the last 16 years. The warmest place during the winter is south Florida if you are looking for nights that aren not cold and pleasant temperature.

I've spent winters in Texas, Arizona, California and Florida.

Although nights from mid december to mid Feb or end of Feb. are cold, you must heat your RV most every night. Temperatures during the night are often in the mid 40 to maybe at the most mid 50. During the day betweeen 65 to 70.
That's Arizona, mostly in the Yuma area. That's the area I preferred, you have a lot of sunshine almost no precip.

We liked both for short term stays, I would think they would be fine for long term stays also. During the winter, most of the folks at Jamaica Beach RV park are from up north (no locals).

I hope this helps.

That's funny...those are the ones I contacted yesterday about availability and rates...really liked the looks of Jamaica Beach...thank you

Jamaica Beach is a great campground, we really like it. We are not crazy about Galveston's beaches. There is a great family owned seafood Resturant about a mile south of Jamaica, on the left side of the road. Well worth finding, I can't remember the name right now............what else is new?

We think the Rockport area of Texas is much more scenic and pleasant than Galveston.

Tried them all , going back to Yuma for the 3rd time. No bugs, sunny and dry. A cold day seems to be high 60s, yes the nights are cool but turn the heat on in the morning for a warm up and that's it. The wind seems to blow less than what we experienced in RGV. I'm sure we will go back to Texas someday lots of friends. Florida to crowded and the no see ems love me. We do love he Emerald coast area in Spring and fall.

My conclusion as well. No place is going to be "on average" every day, and the Naples/Marco area was cooler/wetter than average last January due to El Nino, but far south Florida is going to be warmer on average than any other mainland option. We're so convinced of that we bought a winter coach lot in Naples.
