We hope to be full timing by next fall. The big question - where to spend the winter? Thinking a little of half time in FL and half time in AZ? Or should we stay the whole winter in one place? I understand that we need to plan and be making our reservations now for NEXT year. Please give me your recommendations for RV Parks. Would like to be WARM, hubby is not crazy about 40 degree daytime temps! We hope to have a 43' fifth wheel by then....
What about KOA (Lazy Days)Tuscon?

What kind of aminities or services do you need or want to meet your needs? How long are you planning on staying in a RV park or resort, makes a big difference in prices/rates. Are you looking for small RV parks with few aminities or a resort with full aminites i.e. large rv sites, 50 amps , swiming pools, tennis courts, pickle ball courts, golf etc.
what parts of Ariz. or Flordia do you like? Go to the web site "Good Sam RV parks", pick areas, type of RV park that will meet your needs and the web site will give you a complete list of parks that meet your needs.

You might want to take into consideration traveling across the country during winter. Pick a place and stay put.

I keep looking for a beach in AZ but haven’t seen one yet. Can’t turn around in Florida without tripping over one. All depends on what you’re after. We happen to like the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico.

Also Consider the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, Less than 1/2 the price and at least twice the fun. About 400 parks to choose from $200 - 900. a month with a 3 to 5 month stay and many first timer specials, just ask. With so many parks reservations are not needed except maybe at the cheapest and most expensive parks. I suggest just come down and rent a spot for a week and look at many parks to find what you like. So many choices in the 300. to $400. range. Most parks will have metered electric that usually runs $50. to $100 a month depending on use.

We stay at Lazy Days in Tucson on our way to California and back, it's not a bad park, full services and amenities (and a restaurant on-site), it might be a bit pricey though for a long stay. There are a number of parks in Yuma that may be less expensive and they have the same amenities, let us know if you need details.

Colorado River have beaches all along it. Numerous lakes in Arizona also have beaches. No salt water places if that is what you want. We spent one winter in Florida - bugs, bugs, bugs, bugs everywhere. Plus the huge quantity of people coming from all over the east coast - short tempered, 'entitled' acting, plus businesses/Floridians that want the tourist dollars but not the tourists. Reminded me of Vermont - if you haven't been there for 400yrs, just leave your money, take your picture AND LEAVE.

Ate dirty/dust every day when we spent part of the winter in the RGV and we don't do beer bashes and potlucks. Turns out Arizona desert, especially around Phoenix, is great place to spend the winter. Loads of restaurants/shopping, lots of museums, arts centers, concerts, and Spring Training in March with all ballparks being within a 45 minute drive.
