I have only been to Tampa,Orlando,Bradenton and Sarasota. I am looking to live in my RV in Florida at least until I get firmly established.

What area has the strongest economy. I mostly have done sales and retail/wholesale management in automotive and the steel industry.

Living out of the RV I could probably make it at McDonalds if I had to.

Just looking for a safe area that would be RV friendly.

I'm not sure what part of the state is doing better economically than any others.

None of the above are doing very good right now, You would be much better off trying Northeast Florida (Jacksonville) imho. Jax has a more diverse economy. It doesn't rely on welfare dollars aka tourist income to survive.

Gainesville has the lowest unemployment in the state but I don't know how the job market is up there.

I always suggest that people have a job to come to before they move to Florida in this economy. If you have a job, you may do OK. I would suggest to find a nice RV park and see if you can work out a deal to work there part time in exchange for your space. I know the KOA in Starke does that. It would mean you'd work on the weekends or after you get off work, but it would be free! Check out Federal jobs. They are about the most stable around here right now. They are available in Jacksonville, Gainesville, Tampa, etc.
