Economy, fair weather, life changes but it's not just AZ. I think you could find the same thing in all states. But in all fairness, this site is about molded FG TTs and not people living in their cars. Good question though and many cities are trying to change that end outcome for folks.

Couple things:

1. Wish I would have known you could get a free pass with a disability.

2. Every time we go into a national park, I have to produce the pass and a picture i.d. In general when travelling, I use the enhanced i.d. I got when we purchased our international passports.

I can tell you why I spend the winter in Quartzsite, AZ. We get between 150" & 200" of snow at home!

In the west, if you want to escape winter it's AZ or southern CA. AZ gets the nod on cost.

In the east we are pretty much stuck with FL.

Arizona doesn't have enough of a population to sustain itself as a state without the van dwellers. It would get taken into neighboring states if it weren't for the dwellers.
They're doing you a favor and you didn't realize it.

I'm sure we would get along just fine without the van-dwellers... But being of a somewhat more libertarian bent than our mild-climate neighbor to the west, we have chosen (up to a point) to live and let live, rather than legislate them out of town. Just don't plan to sleep in your car in Flagstaff.

Now as to the seasonal dwellers in motor coaches that cost more than my house... it's complicated!
