Quartzsite Arizona is a favorite winter RV spot for hundreds of thousands of snowbirds who are desperately seeking relief from the bad weather back home.
At Quartzsite longterm friendships are made, annual reunions take place, and returning year after year is a common occurrence for RVers.
Over time though, that annual trek to the southwest becomes more of a chore.
The trip isn’t nearly as fun as the time spent at Quartzsite, so many are finding it easier to leave their RVs parked in the desert sun year round. Then, they return when the festivities start back up in late fall, only to fly or drive north again by early spring.
However, you should know that Arizona has some quirky laws and one of them applies to RVers…
One of them is this:
If an RV stays in the state more than 6 months, the RV must be registered in the state of Arizona.
There are financial repercussions if you try to ignore this bit of legislation.
Oh, and yes they do actually come looking to make sure you have Arizona tags!
(So don’t say I didn’t warn you.)

I’ve been involved in RVing for over 50 years — including camping, building, repairing, and even selling RVs and motorhomes. I’ve owned, used, and repaired almost every class and style of RV ever made. I do all of my own repair work. My other interests include cooking, living with an aging dog, and dealing with diabetic issues. If you can combine a grease monkey with a computer geek, throw in a touch of information nut and organization freak, combined with a little bit of storyteller… you’ve got a good idea of who I am. To date, I've shared my RV knowledge in over 300 articles here at The Fun Times Guide!
