Review:
Price: An overnight stay is about $35

We have a monthly rate in a 30 amp pull-thru site of $400/mo with full hookups/cable/wifi (requires log in code) which is at our current max (we like to stay under $400/mo... we may have to think about bumping that up a little). That works out to $13.34 per night.

This is a very clean park. There are sand filled coffee cans placed on every picnic table, they want you to place cigarette butts there.They seem to dump the trash bins pretty often. It is December and it appears that many of the RV Park residents are workers. The bathhouses & laundry is very clean.

There is a Post Office to the west of the park. There is a convenience store to the east on the corner of W BRASHER & S MAIN (260 ft) that has gas/diesel (good prices), LP tank swap and a Redbox movie rental kiosk outside. There is a bus stop (NB side of S MAIN) across the street kitty-corner from the convenience store. Nearest LP fill station is at the corner of POE and S MAIN/US 285. There is a K-Mart a little north of POE- (NB side of S MAIN). Albertsons Grocery Store is on the west side of S MAIN about 2+ miles north of the park

Re: Roswell, NM Skoolie Friendly

Still in the Town & Country RV Park But we have moved to a back-in "long-term" monthly site. 30 amp = $375. Only $25 less but now its UNDER our self-imposed $400/mo budget.

As a side note: There is another skoolie here. I will try to get a pic of it later when the sun shifts a little. I'll take a pic of our new site.... we have usable SHADE!

Our new site. We are backed up to W. Brasher but we have shade. It' s a tight squeeze. I backed the bus up until the rear tires were almost touching the telephone pole they have laying on the ground delineating the rear of the pad. But due to the peculiarities of the layout, I can still park the Jeep in front of the bus without being in the way of traffic.


Here's the other skoolie.


I like this one!

Re: Roswell, NM Skoolie Friendly

My condolences!

We have been holding under $400 including all utilities for several years now (except for the three months here when our site was $400). Even when we were in Vienna GA and furnished our own DISH TV, our DISH bill plus the monthly campground fee was under $400. We use pay-as-you-go Tracphone (Verizon kept increasing on us in small increments... they claimed it was "taxes & fees"). We keep that pretty low. So our rent/utilities are still in a fairly comfortable range given how tight we have been running. It has taught us that we can live pretty cheap. My two week paycheck more than covers our site rent. I would like to keep it that way, even after we leave NM.

Re: Roswell, NM Skoolie Friendly

I second the Mobile home park suggestion. They are generally cheaper and many will take an RV of any kind (except popups). Some even have "RV" sites. What they do not normally have are bathhouses! While in TX, we stayed at one that was mobile homes with some RV sites. Our electric was metered. We plugged into a 50 amp plug at the panel box (we were 30 amp and used 50 amp adapters). We were responsible for getting our own cable/phone/internet (which we did thru the local TimeWarner cable company for about $100 per month). Overall we were still under $400 per month (not counting the ever rising Verizon cell bill) and cheaper than the RV park in Rockport-Fulton. At least look into mobile home parks just to do some pricing in your area.

Re: Town & Country RV Park Roswell, NM Skoolie Friendly

Saw this today in the campground. I'm not sure what to call it. It looks like a skoolie on a GMC coach. A Schoach?

Re: Town & Country RV Park Roswell, NM Skoolie Friendly

No. They were setting up when we saw them on our way back from the convenience store (returned movies to the Redbox). Then I took a shower to wash my hair. Now it's cooling off and getting dark. They will most likely be gone tomorrow by the time I get off work. I work 9AM to 6PM. By the time I get home, eat supper, it will be time for me to go to bed so I can get up at 3AM to go to work again. Maybe David will talk to them tomorrow. He's feeling better (had a bad couple of days) so will work on furring out the bus some more so we can put up more insulation and flooring on the walls (that sounds wrong doesn't it).

Interesting bus isn't it.
