My spouse has been making his annual trek to Quartzsite & Yuma in mid January and sometimes stays to March, for last 4 years. He camps in our pop up truck camper, pulling a trailer with his dual sport motorcycle inside. Each year he reports freezing temps in Quartzsite while camping on BLM land. He said several rvs around him had frozen water lines on several mornings. Coming from where we lives (eastern WA), he is used to a cold winter, so I have no doubt when he says he was miserably cold, it mustve been pretty darn cold! haha

Thanks for asking your question and thanks for the helpful responses. We are headed to Tucson in January for a month and this has made our planning easier.

Hi Joan,
Have you gotten to Tucson yet & if so. How do you like it? We are leaving the Chicago area on or about the 5th of February. (Depending on weather) for the Phoenix area. Just bought the TT and are a little nervous.

See Payson! Stay in Sedona as well. Sedona Pines, the CG there is to die for! You've gotta see Tlaquepaque - it's an art center! In Tucson, go to the copper mines! See Oro (gold) Valley. The cacti will start blooming in late March - no kidding. The Saguaro Nat'l Park is in the Sonoran Desert - another must see. We love the SW US. Mesa Spirit RV Resort is EXACTLY what they advertise. We stayed there six weeks. We are now in Tucson, at The Voyager Resort till tax day.

Here's the Tucson Visitors Bureau # 520-624-1817, chamber of comm: 520-792-1212. I have a sheet of places to see in the Tucson area with ph no's and locations if anyone would like a copy. Please send me your email address, I'll scan that paper. Both sides!

We are heading from Eastern Washington down to the Lake Havasu area in about 3 weeks (mid February) and we will be pulling our 30 ft Rockwood 2703 with our one ton 2004 Dodge Diesel. We are trying to decide which route would be the safest to travel...Interstate 5 through Oregon and part of California?...Idaho? Any ideas for us would be most appreciated. So far we have had a mild winter; however, in February you never know what to expect. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Maron,

Just came through KS, OK, TX, NM and are now in Benson, AZ. Once in AZ we ended up turning the AC on but it cools off quickly in the late afternoon/evening. We ended up with no propane for the furnace last night and made it fine with a portable electric heater in the bedroom. Will be heading to Tucson tomorrow and will stay somewhere for three nights. We then have reservations at the Catalina State Park for a week while I take a class.

Tucson is great - we just rented a full hook-up space south of Tucson for $79 a week.
