Default Dallas place to stay

Anyone know of a decent (cheap?) RV Park with full hookups near the Dallas metro area (down town)? I may be taking a gig with IBM that will require me to be right in the middle of downtown Big D...
I would love to find a resort and have found some but they are a long drive out of town everyday.

We have stayed at the Caddo Mills KOA just east of Dallas a few times, it is on US36 at I-30, nice folks. Traffic will be a big pain just about anywhere around Dallas, good luck...

$26-34 a night but cheaper by week or month

We just called Dallas West! :-) I think it may be the winner (so far)... they are $380/month with full hookups... not a Resort but for the price pretty good... can't be worse than where we are in Lufkin...

wanna bet?

Do you have Google Earth? A good birds eye view and then down to a street level view. This is not a good neighborhood, but it sure is handy to downtown. The parking downtown will probably cost more than the lot rental. Better to have Karen drive you to work and pick you up.

Yeah, none of the places downtown are going to be too great. I probably will take a bus in if possible - about 20 minute bus ride from Dallas West. We found another place - Woodshire that is further out (45 min bus ride) but is much nicer, more expensive and next to a huge cemetary/park. So at least the neighbors are quiet...

Ernie's Rent-to-Own Rv parts and mini CG at Weatherford may be able to help.

Dick is right, there is Ernie's RV. Bet Ernie would have some suggertions.
Check out the DART. They have bus and rail routes that can put you downtown without the hassle of driving and parking.

I avoid Dallas like I avoid my X-
either at a bad neighborhood- or commute- I know more about stuff west of there- Dallas is an hours drive east of me
