RV Legal Limits in Texas

One important note about Texas for those that are non-residents. Don’t speed, I know there are public service signs everywhere that say “Don’t Slow Texas Down”, but should I ever enter this state again, I will slow Texas down!  I was traveling down a highway entering a town, they had the speed sign behind a construction sign and a cop behind the speed sign. Something right out of the Dukes of Hazzard movie. Unbelievable! I rolled into town doing 9mph over the 35 miles per hour required. The nice little police lady had no pleasantries nor professional courtesies for us that day. I asked her where to pay the ticket and her reply was you figure it out. Since she was in such a Jolly mood I thanked for her time and went back to RV, then googled the county seat and worked my way back from them there. The ticket was $300 plus a $200 court fee, plus sales tax, and recorded as a criminal misdemeanor! Come on, where we are from that is an infraction that only means something to your insurance company for a few years. I was also told by the clerk that if your state requires a special license such as a CDL Texas would pull your CDL on the spot, meaning no license. She also said if I had been doing one more Mile Per Hour she would have placed me in jail until all the money was paid. Texas residents have their records cleared if they get no other tickets for nine months. I want to visit my relatives who are in Texas again, but I might just hire a driver!

Description:

Lake Texoma is a great park in the northern most part of Texas.  Lake Texoma is running about 60 percent of usable spaces full due to extended stay leases. Make sure you have a reservation before coming out to this park. Our Verizon card does not work here, we had to use the Internet from the family center. We are in C loop near the family center and get reasonable access at the front of our rig.

This one is confusing to get to drive to, follow these directions:

From the south via: Go north to

Gainesville. At Gainesville, go east on Hwy.

82, about 15 miles to the Hwy. 377 exit at

Whitesboro. Go north on 377 for 11.5 miles

Turn right (east) just before the storage units. (Look for Cedar Mill Marina sign) There is a sign saying “Thousand Trails 1.5 Miles” The road you turn on, is not marked and looks like a minor road.

Follow the road heading around back of the storage units; then never turn again, even if the road appears to; until you see the check in booth.
