Abstract

The recreational vehicle (RV) camp or park has traditionally served as a brief stopover point along an extended route of travel. RV parks continue to serve this function, but in some Sunbelt locales such as Phoenix, RV resorts have blossomed into seasonal retirement communities for large numbers of elderly. This photo-essay examines RV resorts as vernacular landscapes that include elements of suburbia and small town America.
