Getting ready to take off for a trip to the Southwest and plan to live in 176S for a while in a Long-Term situation. I see this is not recommended for these travel trailers, so I will let you know how things progress....thank you for all your posts on the topic of long-term living...At least, I won't be surprised! It's going to be hot as blazes and I will have my 2 Cavalier Spaniels with me. Sure hope this works! My first real camping trip....but will be in a campground with full hook ups....

We love our 176S and have no problems with it and hope you have the same.. If your doing AZ Chiricahua Natioal Monument is great dry camping South of Wilcox AZ, Kartner Caverns have great sites west of Benson Az, There are two great private parks down toward Nogales by Tubac  off I -19, And all Maricopa County parks are great. Safe travels.

Hi Gran.  I pray you have a lot of fun and safe trips.  You should do just fine staying an extended time in your TT.  The most I have stayed at one time is a month and loved it.  God bless you as you hit the trail.

When I traveled with my dog I was glad to have the travel trailer as the temperature in it did not heat up as much as it did in the truck when it was parked, and I felt comfortable leaving my dog in the trailer at times when I would not have left him in the truck. He was very comfortable in the trailer during the morning when I wandered around the gem show in Quartzsite.  Though it was wintertime, Arizona and Southern California both heated up a bit. Keeping the AC working is key for your comfort and that of your dogs.  Though I only ran mine a couple times in my winter trip, you will want to use it a lot.  I have lived in Arizona and other places that get over 100 degrees regularly, and you definitely want to have working AC. Where I live now, there are only about 6 months of the year where its okay to leave a dog in the car when running errands.  If your  trailer is equipped with a Max Fan, be sure to use it in the morning and evening to cool off the trailer as much as you can once the outside temperature drops. Then you won't need to use the AC as much. If you are in the Tucson area be sure to check out Sabino Canyon and the Desert Museum.

Where are you this year? If you came to AZ again, maybe meet up. If not, what did you find interesting... still finding places to go find to see since November 2018...
