With slides on both sides of my 5er it was not going to work. One actually said I'd have to drop the 5er and they would maneuver it in / out with a tractor.
During winter months northern FL is not nearly as expensive as southern FL. The weather at the panhandle is no different than the weather at home.
It depends on the year. This year, we have been very warm with only about 2-3 scattered weeks of "winter." In years past, we have had temps in the 20's consistently. Normally we don't have to use ac until around May....but we've been using it for about 4 weeks now in the afternoons.
I really like Kathyrn Abbey Hanna Park but it's not a resort. It's a city park. You can walk to a really nice beach and it is gated at night. I am not sure if there are monthly rates though and it is on the East side in Jacksonville.
If you like small towns, the small town of High Springs (or Ft. White) is adorable. It's not ocean front- but is in an area with several river front campgrounds and the natural clear springs. These towns are off of 75 just north of Gainesville.
