We are gong to Mesa Az for 3 months. Plenty of RV parks and some are full for the winter. Don't know if you fit into the 55+ age group or what your budget is will determine what parks you can get.

There are lots of RV parks in AZ, depending upon your age, budget and activities desired. You can also boondock for days on end at some locations. It all depends upon what you want to do and your budget. You can also move around your first year and see where you would like to be, then settle in next year.

But AZ can have snow, too! We were down near the Mexican border one year and woke to an inch of snow on the orange tree outside our rig.

Good luck in your travels!

X2. You need to decide whether you like big cities (Phoenix area including Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale, etc.) or country. You also need to decide whether you want warmer weather or colder. Northern AZ has all the way from mild winter (20 lows and 60 highs) to real winter (Flagstaff and north). Many also like Tucson and extreme southern AZ (eg. Yuma) where it is the warmest of all.

We winter in Tucson at Justins Diamond J Rv Park.. $618 a month includes everything.. 5th winter for us coming up.. lt doesn't have all the fancy stuff like a RV resort has but it is quiet and comfortable and we have made life long friends there.. It is pretty much a sell out late January thur Feb..

Just like everyone says head out no reservations needed. We find Yuma the warmest. Move around to different areas find what you like. You may find that the park you really want to be in fills up , make reservation for it next year. Our schedule is Jan Feb in Yuma , with a 3 day run up to Quartzite boon docking for the big show. Then end of Feb we go to Las Vegas for a week. Then down to Tucson to finish off the winter.
