9797 East 32nd Street, Yuma, Arizona 85365
Westwind, a Large, Award-Winning 55+ Community in Sunny Southern Arizona, Has a Large Swimming Pool, a Nine Hole Golf Course and Park Models for Sale
Yuma is on 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, a large, attractive 55+ community with RV hook-ups and park models for sale.
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 many people live in park models year round).
Many park models, generally no larger than 400 square feet, look like cottages or small site-built homes. Such is the case at Westwind, where most park models have tall windows, a front porch and a pitched roof.
Prices generally start at around $50,000. The monthly lot fee is $900 or $5,0000 for a year. Some other miscellaneous fees apply, too. A $500 deposit is required. Park models have a completee setup, incluidng HVAC, all utility connections, skirting and steps. Check with the community to verify these prices and inclusions as they may change.
Westwind has both full-time and part-time residents. All enjoy the large outdoor pool, nine hole golf course, ballroom, spa, three laundry facilities and 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 does not have an accredited hospital, but the Ft. Yuma Phs Indian Hospital in Winterhaven, California, about six miles outside of town, is accredited.
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.

On February 14, 1912, Arizona became the 48th state to join the Union. In the southwestern region of the United States, it borders New Mexico to the east, Utah to the north, Nevada and California to the west and Mexico to the south. The Cactus Wren is the state's bird, and the Saguaro Blossom is the state flower. The capital and largest city is Phoenix.
Arizona is home to the Grand Canyon, one of the nation's oldest national parks, and the Hoover Dam. It covers 113,000 square miles, making it the nation's 6th largest state. However, only a small portion of the land, about 15%, is privately owned. The rest of Arizona belongs to national parks, state parks and Native American reservations.
Interestingly, the majority of Arizonans - everyone except those in the Navajo Nation - do not observe Daylight Savings Time.
Why Choose a 55+ Community?
Most people who choose to live in a 55+ development are looking for a sense of community with other people of similar backgrounds. Many of these developments are gated and guarded, adding to a sense of security. Often the homes are low maintenance or "lock and leave," giving owners the freedom to do things other than mow the lawn, shovel the snow or replace the roof. The biggest draw is often the amenities, ranging from lavish clubhouses to activity directors and championship golf courses, making some developments akin to country club living (or summer camp for adults). While 55+ communities are not for everyone, they continue to be a popular choice for many people.
