Arizona Permanent RV Lot/resort-casita and parking?

I am wondering if any of you have some information on possible locations in RV resorts in Arizona with lots for sale that has an associated small home and adjacent covered parking for a Class A 45' MH. We are planning for retirement and think we might enjoy a place like this in an active community with amenities/activities. We know about Voyager near Tucson, but winder what other choices there may be.
I did not see another place that this might be more appropriately posted.
Hopefully you all have some input for this topic!

I'm not sure I'd want to be tied down to one place. Friends (two different couples) had places here in the PNW and in Yuma. Both felt tied down with needing to do upkeep on both.
But another couple has lots with casita's both in the PNW and AZ and enjoys that life too.

I would recommend taking a winter and spending a couple weeks at various parks in various areas. Some may not interest you. Don't jump into this right away. You need to get a feel for the different parks/area.

Voyager is a very popular place in Tucson and Happy Trails in Surprise, at Phoenix is popular - both, especially if you like pickleball. Happy Trails has a lot of covered parking pads attached to the 'casita'. The greater Phoenix area has tons of places and many are getting very old now so it's really best to just tour them for yourself. Palm Creek in Casa Grande is huge. We don't particularly like the area but many do. It's too far for day trips to Phoenix and Tucson.

We've not stayed at any of these so can't give you a first-hand report. We always like public parks and move around.

I keep thinking that I want to buy an RV lot of some sort too. Then DW & I have the repeated discussion that we sure can rent a lot of places for the price of purchasing a lot. That doesn't even consider the taxes, operation and maintenance costs that would materialize with lot ownership each year. Two other factors we consider; ever had a horrible neighbor? It sure is nice to be able to hook up and leave without having to sell real estate. The other factor is the excitement factor of seeing new people and places. If we owned a lot, I bet we would travel to a lot less new places ad end up staying in the same ol same ol place. our $0.02

We went thru same discussion. Finally ended up with this logic: Warm/winter places are abundant. Cool/summer places are limited without getting close to Canadian border. So we ended up with a 40 year low annual cost lease on space in S. Co. We go wherever we want in the winter - just about anywhere between Miami and San Diego. We think resale will be more profitable due to limited number of "cool" places vs warm ones. Just remember - "wanting is a lot more fun than having." Have fun looking.
