We have heard from a vendor perspective that they are typically overwhelmed by service requests so I expect that getting services and support would be a plus factor.

Of course they had to chase one of their tents into the desert when it blew away!

We have been staying at a very small town (Bouse) about 24 miles from Quartzsite for the last several years and plan to head that way the 1st of December. We are close enough to run into Q when we want but are out of the traffic. Of course the only time the traffic is very heavy is during the big RV show. Q is one of those places that many folks either enjoy or hate. We happen to enjoy the area.

we are into our 7th yr. in Quartzsite. We stay a little south of town in Rainbow Acres.(its not an rv park, but a development) We just love it. Have been once to rv show, so much junk and traffic. We are rock hounds and gold prospectors so do our own thing. Belong to the local metal detecting club(has 867 members) never are they all there at one time-!!Theres over 70 rv park in Q(mostly smaller ones), and a few outside within 25 miles.
Coin hunt once a month, club outing with pot luck once a month. Close enough to go to Yuma for a day shopping or into Mexico for dental/eyeglasses/booze/or trinkets. Each year we have a better time than the last year. We pass thru Bouse sometimes on our way to Parker to shop and donate money at Blue Water(casino). Try it, you just may like it.. Dona

We did it for about 5 years. Got a little tired of the same ole thing though, and the winter nights can be pretty chilly. Plus there's not a lot to do out there in the middle of the desert. Closest city of any size is 95 miles to Yuma. Our sixth year took us to the Gulf Coast of Texas. Been loving it ever since. Were 35 miles from Corpus Christi, 150 miles to San Antonio, 160 to Houston. 165 miles to Mexico. Not that we go to any of these 100 plus mile locations too often, but there good day trip routes if you just have to find something or do something different. Like the River Walk in San Antonio, for example.

To each their own of course, but we find this area with the ocean beaches within a mile of where we camp invigorating and fun. Good fishing, or buying fresh fish too.
