Full time Orlando FL?

My husband and I have decided to take the leap!! However, before we can we need to know we have a place local to park long term. We still arenít mobile with our jobs so we have to be stationary for now. Anyone know of any good places in the Central Florida area? Also, we have 2 70lb dogs.

Just Google local RV campgrounds in you area and call them. Also, 2 big dogs living in a RV can quickly take a toll on the RV interior.

Ever live in Florida? I know folks do it but.......I lived in Florida for 25+ years in a house and a condo and i consider myself to run hot. I am very comfortable at 85 degrees and80% humidityand i would be rethinking my life choices mid june early july in an rv in Florida. Its fricking hot and humid! Central fl even more so as they dont get much is any sea breeze like the coastal areas do.

Hurrican season and prepared to evac from jun to oct. Rvs dont do high winds well at all. Trailers, mobile homes, rvs are always the first on the manadatory evac list, yes even inland like orlando, add dogs and you are prolly gonna be forced to pack up and run with the rig because evac shelters that are gonna alllow you in with 2 70lb dogs are like unicorns.

There are tons of rv parks, mobile home parks, campgrounds all over that area. Summer rates are real cheap for a reason, winter rates real high for a reason.

good luck

summer in high humidity high heat and comfortable depends on rig quality. ive spent a month in central florida in august. Very hot but my Kountry Aire 5ver with 2 airs and a dehumidifier and i was fine. 73 or 74 inside and dry.

my suggestion buy a high quality used rig unless a new one and around 200k is in budget for a 5ver. a MH lol times 3 or 4 the previous number.
