We leave as soon as the leaves fall in MN, Mid Oct at the latest and return mid May.
We see the biggest wave the first week after Thanksgiving. Many combine Christmas and Thanksgiving as a single holiday and head south after thanksgiving.

We spend the month of September traveling down the West Coast (picking up wines for the winter) and arrive in Mesa, AZ on October 1st. Will be here until the first of April, then off again trying to find somewhere cooler. ??

Usually leave Christmas Day (best day to travel anywhere in the world) and usually home for Easter. Some snowbirds from way up north bring their rigs south before the roads get salted and then fly home for the holidays. Canadians tend to spend 5+ months in the South.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

10/8
Left early to avoid winter weather and campground closures.
Currently thinking that a summer cabin in northern Arizona and winter home in the valley might allow us to become full time AZ residents.

We are moving into a home in the Mesa area at the end of December and will keep the RV for a couple more years (stored during the winter) and then looking at the cabin up high for the summers.
