If you want to be in that area, consider Deming, New Mexico or Las Cruces, NM. None will be what you might hope for as 'warm'. You're still at higher elevation around those areas.

Consider Tucson if you want warmer and it has lots of wonderful things to do.

Deming - you'd be near City of Rocks and Rockhound State Parks for some interesting terrain to explore. I believe each has electric hookups which you'll need because it could be cold/windy in that whole area. You could also tour Silver City area. There are many RV parks in Deming along with restaurants. The museum is awesome - a little bit of everything and well organized. It's not a fancy little town.

Las Cruces, NM is a bigger city than Deming if that's what you like. Likewise, much to do in the area for drives. Again, it could be cold & windy there. Depends when you're planning this trip. mid-Dec/Jan - mid-Feb are the colder times but then, you may luck out.

Elephant Butte was mentioned and that could be another possibility although it's a small town. I think spending two weeks there would be difficult unless you want to fish.

All of the above would have about the same weather.

To find RV parks in these areas that might appeal to you, look up the town or nearby towns on RV Parks Review. Also, there are state parks in all these areas so you may just want to move around to check out the different places if you enjoy state park surroundings (like we do). Good luck with your choice!

I agree with what he said. EP is 4000' and is cold in the winter. If you want warm you got to drop in altitude, thus my post about Weslaco and another poster mentioned to look up RGV Rv parks. You mention a couple of weeks, so maybe time is a issue, and getting from Colorado in winter could be a issue?

We need a better understanding of your travel thoughts. Perhaps fly to the RGV, rent a car and condo. There are extended stay motel/hotels in Weslaco. Folks fly down, rent a car and do Mx for dental work.

My house is @ 54', so I know warm winters. Presently sitting in Gunnison, Co for summer. 7700', 34 degrees this morning, going to 78 this afternoon.

^^. Yep. It has changed since the old days, but still a great place to hang for a week or two. They still got a goat there.

We winter in Mission at Benson Palm Village. It is warm, people want you there, there is a lot to do in the area. Any place in the Rio Grande Valley would be nicer and much warmer than El Paso

If you are looking for warmth in the cold months, and to be near Mexico border,, it is about 1400 miles from Colorado Springs to El Paso to RGV Mission Texas. and it is about 1000 miles from Colorado Springs to Yuma AZ. You have many good choices.

Some good sites to look on the interweb. campgroundreviews.com, Campendium, and more. I have never stayed in Tucson.

We like the KOA. For the following reasons:
Great bike trail you can ride to from the park.
Quiet, Paved roads, Texas BBQ restaurant onsite.
There are several parks in Tucson so I am sure others will have suggestions.

Thousands and thousands of RVers head down there for winter. Many are square dancers in the McAllen area.

I'd recommend the Voyager which has a ton of things to do.

Voyager Hotel & RV Resort: Tucson AZ Luxury Resort | RV Sites, Park Model & Manufactured Home Sales

OR... Catalina State Park if you want a more natural experience. Nice hiking & I believe a 2-week limit.
