Almost positive they have open sites here in Oak Haven RV Park. We are 10 miles N of Port Charlotte, 12 miles S of Arcadia.
I realize it's a bit of a drive, but thought I'd help you out a little.
Sorry, but my F-150 can't handle your 5th.

There are several resorts where you can rent a space by the month. Unfortunately, I am not sure how many where you currently are but there are several in the Orlando area.

FLHP was very nice, but told me that this happens all the time here, with no license, no insurance, warrant, etc. Insurance is taking care of the truck, and it's in the body shop now. Expected completion date ??? Problem is that my reservation here ends on Jan. 12th. No amount of negotiations with them have worked, they are at max capacity on the 13-18th for the big Tampa RV show. With no tow vehicle, I can't move my 42' 18,000 lb 5th wheel. Coach net will move it, but there is nowhere to go. Every campground is booked. We did get a rental car, and we could get a hotel, but we have our 3 dogs with us. I have called 12 campgrounds, all full. We need to stay in the area, but have now expanded our search. Gotta wait till Monday the 4th to start trying again.
I'm sure it will all work out, just venting a bit!

Man that a brutal scenario. I was just in Florida last week and didn't know that was a problem there. Do a quick Google search. Maybe find a dealer that sells your model trailer. Perhaps they can let you park it there for a few days and coach net can move it there? Maybe they let you store it short term? Maybe there is something that you want to have them check on the fiver, wink wink. Obviously you would probably need a hote room but your RV insurance may cover that. I believe my GEICO policy would.

I would be surprised if shop could not have truck done before the 12th. I had worse damage than that on my wife's truck and was fixed good as new in 8 days. have your insurance company fin d you a location to put it after all it should be covered.

Make the truck drive able and the get it
repaired at home.
Hit a moose ones in Northern Canada, had the windshield
repaired the same day, tied everything together and kept going,
all the way to Alaska, back through a British Columbia, Washington
State, back accross the US and home to Ottawa and then had
it repaired. Don't let a bump spoil your holiday, metal can be repaired.
