Try to get a space shaded from afternoon sun. Pay extra if necessary.
Iíll second that! We leave our Airstream at an RV park here (we own a house in Rockport), hooked up and ready to go - never, ever had a problem with things sprouting legs and walking off...
Rockport is close to a lot of things here on the coast and always has things going on during the week/weekends. Easy access to Port Aransas on the ferry (yes, you can ride over with your Airstream and itís free), and Mustang Island as well as the national seashore. On the Rockport side, there is Goose Island state park, too. Iíve heard but havenít counted, that there are somewhere in the vicinity of 65 RV parks around the area so youíre sure to find something to your liking. Takes me 2 hrs. 15 mins to get to San Antone if so inclined...
Absolutely avoid Port Aransas during Spring Break... the local wisdom is to stock up on anything & everything youíll need for the week and stay inside... traffic is terrible and the beaches are.... wall-to-wall kids. Otherwise, that is when itís not Spring Break, the beaches are fine - you can even drive on them to find you a spot (if you do, make sure to hit a car wash to rinse the underside of both your car & trailer).
August & September are months to be avoided here... hot & humid beyond belief.
