We split one winter between San Diego and Mesa. We learned in Mesa rather quickly on what we thought was a beautiful day NOT to open our windows and door. It didn't take long for everything to be covered in dust. Temperatures are near perfect, but the incessant dust made Mesa a no no for us.

Second year you don't even notice the dust. SD is just too expensive. Just curious, where in Mesa were you staying? We've been coming to Mesa for the winter since 2010 and unless there is a dust storm that comes through (usually happens once during the year when we are there) we usually have windows open 24 hr a day when things are temperate. Now if you had said you were on the west side of Phoenix, they do get more dust there because of all of the agricultural fields on the west side.

We too stay at Voyager and just purchased a covered RV site there after staying originally for 3 months but had to stay 7 months due to surgery. The resort has everything you’d ever need in one place! Tucson has other nice RV resorts in the area too!

Do you all when going to Quartzsite AZ have clubs within the group like Boardgame clubs or do you have like a Spades or Bridge club?

We've picked Yuma for our winter home. Size isn't as intimidating as Phoenix or Tucson but it still has most everything we need. There are lots of options from 14 day state and BLM to LTVA to Resort parks to basic older RV parks. The option we liked most was the ability to rent a large lot in the foothills. Weather is the best in Az for the winter and as far as the aircraft noise.....that isn't noise, that's the Sound of Freedom!

Are the train horns in Benson really that bad? Butterfield has openings but read online reviews that say the trains are non stop, day and night.

We lived in Mesa for 15 years and only recall mid-monsoon dust storms happening maybe 2 to 3 times per year; and those were in the summer and be gone by September. So our guess is that the dust you are getting is the dust in the campground or surrounding areas being kicked up by vehicles or construction. So keep your windows closed during the day. Usually at night the wind dies down and nobody is working to make dust.

You can hear them from all over town. But if you RV for any length of time, you get so use to it, it doesn't bother you. We've stayed at several different parks in Benson over the years, don't let that dissuade you.

I can tell you from experience that it is non stop, often dualing horns as the trains pass each other, if you don't like trains don't stay there. There is a couple of different parks that are off the tracks so to speak that don't have the train issue that are nice but Butterfield is not one. IMO!

I have to say we like the desert, peace and quiet, so we boondock most of the time, have not used a RV park except once during the winter and then only because we weren't set up for boondocking. Now we are good to go and love the boondocking side of life. Will be there this winter!!

We agree with the train horns in Benson going all night. Happened last night. We left.

We like Quartzsite, Sierra Vista, and Tombsone. Last winter all of those places got hit with 8" of snow. Lasted about a week, and it was a freakish cold February.
