If you’re checking out retirement communities in Phoenix or other Arizona cities and you own or plan to buy an RV, the availability of RV parking is important. Some homeowners' associations don't allow RV parking in your own driveway for any length of time, and some don't offer parking facilities for RVs, so if you want to keep an RV in Phoenix, you need to search for communities that have RV parking. Fortunately, there are a number of these.
