Sounds like a great alternative. Just remember, you probably won't want to be there in the summer months and would need to factor in the cost to go some place else. Having been in AZ since I was a kid, the heat gets really old!

Hey Howard, thanks for the details! We hope to stay on the road quite a bit our first few years but it sounds like these Co-ops make a lot of sense as an option when we want to slow down the travel. Also, with the prices it provides a contingency if my financial planning and/or the economy don't hold up.

We have stayed at this co-op park and it is nice. However, after staying in Az. for the past 2 winters we decided on Fl. this year and yes you do not want to be in Az. for the summers so head for the mountains where it is cooler. One couple we knew stayed the summer in theyre rig and both his A/C's could not cool it down enough.

Howard thanks for the information on the SKP resorts, you explained it very well. It sounds as if it would be a very inexpensive way to live and still enjoy the RV. In the Summer you could always move to a cooler climate. Once again thank you.

Howard, you covered it about as well as can be done. A good explanation of the co-op program. We do enjoy being part of the Saguaro Co-op, have had this site for two and a half years, and we have been here for part of a summer and didn't find it terrible heatwise. Benson is cooler than Tucson, and Tucson is cooler than Phoenix/Scottsdale,

Please do get on the hot list - we'd love to have you as neighbors!

I just read your write up on the SKP Leaseholder Co-Op. Good Job! I got on the list last year. I got on the list as a back up plan for "years" down the road. Things could change, but at least I'm no the list right now.
