Suggest you take a short trip up to Perry, Ga (on I-75) and stay a couple of days getting used to things. Fair Harbor is a great place to make sure you understand everything and have all that you need.
Strong wifi throughout the park and FHU sites are nice and roomy. If you have RV problems, there is several dealerships just up the road that can help you out.

Since you're in Fl, you might want to check out Bluewater Key, near Key West. We just returned from there yesterday.... this is the lot we stayed on --> Bluewater Key Lot 8 -- there are 81 lots in the resort -- all with different amenities.

Yes we plan on joining Passport America and Good Sam's. We get a year of Thousand Trails with our RV purchase and will probably add a zone or two and upgrade to be able to visit the Encore parks as well. Not convinced that one of the higher membership levels are worth it though. If anyone can comment we would like to understand the advantages or disadvantages. I see us staying in one spot for longer than 21 days (likely 3-4 months) and, when we do travel, I think 14 days in one spot is plenty.

There is a very nice resort called Indigo Bluffs near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Michigan. It has a regular campground side that is very nice as it is, but they also have a "luxury" side which we found absolutely fantastic. We stayed on the "regular" side, but had we known how nice the "luxury" side was, we would have happily paid the higher price for that.

The other nice resort that we have been to is the West Glacier KOA near the west entrance to Glacier National Park.

Those are probably the two nicest places we have stayed.

Shhhhh.

We're not supposed to tell anybody about this place. It's the most amazing "RV Resort" we've ever stayed at. I laughed though when they handed me the remote control to open the gate to get into the "luxury" side of the park.

Everything about this place was heavenly, especially the surroundings and the people.

I think we stayed there for three nights, but I wish we could have stayed longer. We were really winging it on that trip with no plan or itinerary. We fell in love with this area and the climate, and took our foot off the gas to explore more slowly. We visited the U.P. and then stopped in the Ontario side of Sault Ste. Marie for another four nights before turning back west and looping around Lake Superior and starting our long trip home again.

Indigo Bluffs was the nicest place we stayed on our 11,000 mile trip. The facility was perfect and the hosts were priceless.

Definitely Blue Water Key Resort in Key West. Each site is privately owned. Most come with tiki huts, on the water, and some with docks. Highly recommend but is very expensive.

"RV Resort Park" means different things to different people. But keep in mind, the meaning varies between park owners. Some owners seem to think they have a "Taj Mahal" and it is no more than a regular RV Park. Don't trust their internet info as many never resemble what you read or saw on an advertisement. I'm betting with in the first year of full timing you will start to ignore "RV Resort" signage. We have been full timing for 17 years and have yet to stay at a "Resort". The sign might have said "RV Resort" but only in the owners mind.

My favorite campgrounds are around Zion National Park, Utah..Bryce Canyon National Park is amazing as well.

I love Arizona, Nevada as well but why stop there?

Come to California and you will be amazed...Yosemite, The Central Coast(Avilla, Pismo, etc), The Sierras, even Half Moon Bay (40 minutes from San Francisco) are phenomenal. San Diego is nice too...you can camp at Mission Bay RV Park or Campland on the Bay and catch a Uber to downtown San Diego, even see a baseball game at beautiful Petco Park (I'm a Dodgers Fan)...great experience.

BTW, I was born and raised in Florida...I know Florida like the back of my hand but there is no comparison to camping in California. Yes, the gas is expensive out here but it is well worth it.

Cal is great for camping but the speed limit blows and so does your fuel prices. Left Oregon a month or so and paid 3.29 for diesel and got to CA and it was 4.19. Add to the fact that everywhere is packed to the gills it's just not worth going there anymore. Sure we'll go back but not this year.
