Leisure and Recreation in the Lower Rio Grande Valley in Texas
A survey of 5,906 visitors to the Rio Grande Valley--mature owners of recreational vehicles and other housing facilities--reveals useful insights into this subculture. Those tourists who return to the Valley over several years change their behavior in a predictable manner. This study also indicates an inchoate. change among owners of RV parks and other facilities. The visitors used to be taken for granted, but competition for their patronage is emerging.
