Sounds like you want to winter in the Houston area, which is about an hour from Galveston (depending on which side of town you end up in). In Sugar Land it's a nice ride down HWY 6 to the coast, wide 6 lane road, very little traffic (once you get out of Sugar Land).
I'd be happy to ride with you, very accessible to San Antonio, Austin, great state parks.
Here is a link to a campground that is clean and always full.

A word of caution - there is a chance that once you come here, you may never leave so plan accordingly.
My bike is stock - I always wear a helmet - I ride because I love it and you never know how many summers you have left.

There are several excellent RV parks around lake Conroe where I live and, they like bike people just fine. Here, in Conroe, you are 88 miles from the seawall in Galveston or a little less to Trinity Bay/Bolivar penninsula. An easy hour and a half ride at the max. We, (Traci and I) do it in less.
I'll look today and get you some phone#s and names. Conroe incidentally is a great hop off point for many desitnations around Texas without all the traffic and hassle of Houston. I love that city but, thats what it is. Theres plenty to do there but its busy.... and the traffic is horrific.
Heres a goog of some of them. Castaways is, from what I've heard, a nice safe place. Once you narrow it down, I'd be glad to take a ride out and scope it out for you.
By the way, we like Canadians here... they taste just like chicken. ;)

I don't really know much about the RV parks, but the wife and I really enjoy the Port Aransas/Rockport/Corpus Christie area. It's not as crowded as the Houston area, and there are lots of "snowbirds" that flock down there in the winter.
Plus, if you're into nature, the Aransas Wildlife Refuge is the winter home to whooping cranes and tons of other migratory birds.
