Resort-Style 55+ Community in
Sunny Southern Arizona Has Park Models, a Large Swimming Pool and a 9
Hole Golf Course
is in the very southwestern tip of Arizona and for many years was a
busy ferry stop on the Colorado River. These
days it is primarily a tourist and snowbird destination and the site
of Westwind RV and Golf Resort, an attractive 55+ RV and park model
community with both full time and part time residents.
Park models are sometimes confused with manufactured homes but are actually
very different. Manufactured homes are built off site,
transported and attached to a foundation on site. Park models, on the other hand, are RVs, mounted
on a chassis with wheels. Manufactured homes are meant to be
permanent residences, while park models are solely meant for recreational,
seasonal or vacation use (although some people live in park models year
round). Many park models, generally no larger than 400 square feet, look like cottages or
small homes. Such is the case at Westwind, where the units have
tall windows, front porches and pitched roofs. Models are for sale from
the high-$20,000s and may be purchased for personal use or as a rental
investment (most park models lease from $1,400 per month and are fully
furnished). Check with the community to verify these prices as they may
Amenities include a large outdoor pool, a 9 hole golf course, a ballroom, a
spa, three laundry facilities and a long list of classes and activities,
including card games, music lessons, dance lessons and yoga classes.
Events include holiday parties, blood pressure clinics, BBQs,
potlucks, Karoke nights and touring musical acts.
Built in 1985 and updated in 1998, Westwind has won numerous awards over the
years. It has been named the Number One Recreation Vehicle Park in Yuma
and has received the Woodall 5W award. Good Sam has also rated Westwind as
its top snowbird destination park.
Yuma's desert climate is, simply, very hot.
Summer temperatures reach well into the 110s and
last from May until September and October. Winters are warm and dry with
average temperatures in the low 70s.
Yuma does not have an accredited hospital, but the Ft. Yuma Phs Indian Hospital in Winterhaven, California, about six miles outside of
town, is accredited.
