I am talking about paid parking where I can stay as long as I want to.

There is free boondocking 90 miles from San Diego city, but nothing legal within 9 miles. The best we have are casino parking lots that will let you stay 3 days.

The land in SanDiego is too expensive to build RV parks. You will find long term is available in Bakersfield at all of the parks. Bakersfield RV resort is the best one. Rates are reasonable for Ca. The central valley of Ca is very mild winter.

In that case it appears you are expecting more from the San Diego area than the San Diego area wants to make available to you.

Surf & Turf RV Park - Home

Stayed here for two weeks this past spring. A little cramped, but the price was reasonable for being just inside the northern border of the city of San Diego. I grew up a couple of miles away.

Hahaha! 100,000 want to stay in SD for free. There are tons of RV parks in that area. Driving to Mexico, I've seen them all the way down I5 to San Ysidro. I would imagine that they are cheaper the closer you get to the border.

Still not sure what you want. If you want paid parking there are RV parks in San Diego and also Santee Lakes nearby.

I have been trying to find dry camping where I can stay all winter and there just does not seem to be such a concept here. Somebody could make a ton of money getting into this RV parking business, both for dry camping and spots with at least power poles.

The OP said they are all "full with monthly parking spots and up to 100 people on the waiting list to get in".

There are still 2 drive-in movie theatres in the San Diego metro area. I bet they could make much more money by converting them to parking lot style RV spaces with electric outlets on those speaker poles.

Maybe. Setting up a bunch of 50 amp power poles take a lot of utility power. If the available power isn't nearby, it can cost a bundle, to get it run.

A Drive-In Movie and an RV park. You might have a real money maker there. You could name it Park N Watch.

Just try leveling your coach on a drive-in movie lot.

OK. I'll be quiet now.
