There are a number of communities in Arizona that have their own RV parking facilities. Some communities have regulations that restrict the length of time that you can park an RV in your driveway, and as most garages aren’t big enough to accommodate such vehicles, you need to find a community where RV parking won’t be a problem.
Many people look to retirement in Arizona because of the climate. Spring and fall are perfect times to be there, and winters are usually mild. Summers are different, however, with temperatures climbing into the 100s for several days at a time, and there are spectacular and heavy thunderstorms.
People deal with this in different ways. Snowbirds hold on to their other residence and head back there for the summer. Some people sit it out, while others jump into their RVs and head off on a road trip. If that sounds like you, then these are some of the Arizona communities we’ve found which have their own RV parking or RV storage facilities.
