full-time in Houston TX

There is a slight chance my job could relocate to Houston TX, and I was curious if anyone knew how easy it was to live FT in a Casita trailer there. I guess either at campgrounds, RV park, or trailer park. I would want a tornado shelter nearby, as I am from the North, and am a giant chicken.

I think that BYOB might be the rule (Bring your own boat).
Seriously, have you ever spent a summer in Houston?
I remember spending a week there one summers day. LOL

Well said Bob. I hope the Casita's AC is a big one.

Well, the weather in Houston is tropical, hot, humid, and can rain a good deal all at once. Mildew grows on things easily and you're also in Hurricane territory. It's also a very large city in size so you'd have to see what side of town you'd be working in and if there's even an RV park located in that area. Otherwise you're going to be driving A LOT in Houston traffic. BUT, it can be done because a lot of the RV parks are always pretty full down there. Good luck! (I lived in Houston for almost 20 years.)

No tornadoes in Houston (except for those spawned from the hurricanes.)
Traffic is very bad, depending on when and where you are going.
Houston is very hot and humid and mildew will grow while you watch!

If I run a little Eva-Dry dehumidifier in my SD17 Casita, will that solve the mildew problem? The possibility of going to Houston has popped up again.

As a side note on traffic, all roads leading into Houston should have big red signs saying, 'UNDER CONSTRUCTION'.

I have actually never been to Houston, or even Texas. I imagine it is full of big ranches, oil drills, and Cadillacs. I would rather it be too hot, than too cold. Hot will not destroy my Casita.

Are there RV parks where I could "live" at that are near Houston? Any idea how expensive they would be, assuming it is in a nice area?

Just don't. I lived in Houston for 3 years and the happiest day was the U-Haul and Casita leaving for good. I lived 26 miles from my office and my daily commute was 90 minutes each way!
