Hello all,
I was wondering if anyone might be familiar enough with port isabel or south padre island to offer advice.
We have booked a condo on spi that we will be staying at in july 2013. We'd planned to have a fun family camping road trip as it will be a 3 day drive each way for us. All of a sudden the condo management have become difficult and have decided that even though we are allotted two parking spaces per condo, that they dont think they will be able to allow our dinky 13 foot travel trailer to park there b/c it is the busy season. I have explained to them that I can easily park our truck and camper in two spots. But I do not want to get there and find out they wont budge because then what?!
Unfortunately if I can't sway them with my northern charm then we will either have to forgo bringing our camper :( and stay in hotels, OR bring the camper :) and find a place to store it for 3 nights.
Any advice, suggestions, etc... on where one might find safe and secure temporary storage in this area for a teeny lil camper?
Thanks everyone!

In the absence of any other ideas/offers ... many of the newer UHAUL dealers have both 'ustore' and vehicle/RV storeage. You might contact them to see what a 72 hour storeage fee would be.

Enjoy this club and your visit to Texas!

Try local campgrouds, they are not busy in July. Search South Padre Island or Port Isabel and call around for prices. We live 2 hours away from South Padre Island and the Rio Grand Valley has lots of campgrounds that are winter retiree destinaions, the campgrounds are full in the winter, but not in the summer. Good luck!
