Havasu is a perfect retirement location (and popular for that) if you can get outa town in the summer heat. As my contractor friend once told me, "Its Blast furnace Hot!!!" I asked him about whether the dryness of the heat gave any comfort. I took his answer to mean generally, um, no. Of course he never saw worse than 128. Its hard to make sense of much in the way of clothing in that kinda heat. For Rv'ers there may not be a better, fun town (probably a number equal tho). Good shopping, decent restaurants and a coupla good ones, and a crazy-social demeanor.
Then there's that heat in the summer. Get an RV, use its wheels to point north or at least to a higher elevation, then head back in October while the town is still empty (between the crush of snow birds & the crush of summer river rats).
Wind blows in Havasu also BTW.
Also BTW, Welcome to iRV2.
