This is an El Nino year.. Doubt you'll find a "good" dry warm place in the SW this winter.

It can be deceiving out west as to where to go. Pay attention to elevation, parts of northern AZ. like Flagstaff get snow. A lot of snow birds head for the Phoenix/Mesa/Tucson areas. We wintered in Mesa one year and the temps. were beautiful. I'm sure others will be along with their experiences.

Indio might be the best warm weather area.

We winter just east of Apache Junction in Gold Canyon Arizona. The elevation is about 1,700 feet and we average about 2 days a year with frost. Today is 81* with sunny blue skies. The humidity currently is 16%. There are lots of government owned areas for four wheeling in the area. One RV park is called the Arizonian and they go four wheeling right out of the park.

Give Yuma AZ a look. Lots to do, warm, and plenty of really good parks.

Albuquerque is not what I would call warm in winter. Tolerable, yes. But it gets cold and even occasional snow. To get out of the snow and cold you need to go south, and Las Cruces area is much warmer. Also a lot of good off-roading areas around LC. LC is just north and west of El Paso.

Painted Rock campground in AZ

Here's an isolated place with Jeep trails. No hookups, but it's good for a few days of exploring and relaxation.
