We are planning to drive from Canada to our vacation home this winter and leaving the vehicle behind. We intend registering/insuring it in AZ on future trips.
Most of our trips are between 2-3 weeks 2-3 times a year.
Has anyone taken a vehicle from Canada and left it in Arizona?
I know the maintenance implications already...batteries, tires, etc...

you need a letter from the manufacturer certifying that it meets US epa and crash standards.. *almost* all cars in Canada do.. hopefully, your car isn't one of the exceptions..

you can call the manufacturer's customer service line to get the letter sent out.. you'll need it, and probably a "vehicle vin inspection" in Az, along with a smog test to buy plates here..
