Welcome to the Forum. There are a lot of folks who have great info about RV camps are used by snowbirds. Although DW and I arent there yet, we are heading to Arizona early next year to check out different areas. One very good place to look is rvparkreviews.com

Truth is that my opinion about something will most likely differ from yours. There are hundreds of parks in the Rio Grand Valley of Texas that will meet your needs. If you are heading for Florida hearing about them would not help. One way beyond asking for others opinions would be to not book a park from the frozen north but to put the wheels in motion and visit the areas that you are curious about and use the time doing short stays. When you find something you like then book it for the next year.
Beyond that, your choices for a warm winter is generally limited to South Florida, RGV in Texas, Arizona, and California. Anything beyond that and you willl be subject some nights of below freezing weather. Even those do occasionally get some frosty nights.
Do you have an area that interests you the most?

The KOA in Carlsbad, NM is wonderful. Rated #1 KOA in NM, it has a great staff, swimming pool, excellent facilities, and allows weekly, monthly (and longer) stays at reasonable rates.

As Fred 1609 recommended the Rio Grand area is good and welcomes "Winter Texans" it has the warm weather "usually" but it also has those Texas breezes, we have found the rates in the RGV are good if you do not mind the winds. We usually stay in south Florida Lake Placid area (Sunshine RV) and have found the temperatures there are generally in the mid 70's to mid 80's and there is not the humidity you get on the coast areas. A good thing for you to check out would be the Escapees Club they have member campgrounds all across the south from California to Florida you could try them out and pick the area that best suits you rates for members are in the $85-$100 range per week, hope this helps
