Leaving MH in Palm Springs/Arizona over winter

I hear people take their MH down to PS or somewhere in Arizona in the fall and leaving it there all winter. Do they leave it at a CG and pay the going daily rate or leave it at a storage facility?

Guess I never heard of something leaving all season and just driving down occasionally. I can see staying all season and leaving for Christmas holidays but returning and staying the rest of the season.

If you're only using it short times putting it in storage would be the way to go. Many parks won't let you store an unoccupied RV all season on the site but they may have a storage area.

We stay in it during the winter. That's why it is down there. Now we have stayed in places in AZ where you can keep the motorhome down there all year for aprox. $3000 per year (six months max) and then for the six months you stay there you pay for your electric any other utilities.

I would hope you would look for a storage parking spot!

Sites in those area's fill up in the winter, and the last thing they need, is empty RV's taking up sites !!

We would only leave our rig in an indoor storage facility.

I live in Arizona (the desert) in a master planned community, so have to use an RV storage facility a short distance from my home. At least two people from Canada leave their class A's there all winter. They like NASCAR so come to the races in November then store the MH until the March races then head back north for the summer. Sure saves them worrying about snow load, putting anti-freeze in the piping, - whatever else you cold country people have to do. If we do get a frost warning (not too often) it only lasts a couple of hours.
