We stayed in Apache Junction a year about 5 years ago and could get to Phoenix airport in 30 minutes with no problem. One thing we found out is that there are RV parks and there was RV dealers back then everywhere in the eastern area of Phoenix metro.
You will have to drop the fuel tank unless you make your own hole through floor.

One (of many) things to do - add sta-bil in copious quantities for the long storage term. If the storage will be thru the summer, find out how the locals deal with the excessive heat and super dry conditions - rubber can dry out and become embrittiled if not treated.
