I said that Camelot RV Park, Walmart and Home Depot were in Cottonwood in my post. I doubt there will ever be a Walmart in Sedona.

Cottonwood isn't very far away though, 25 minutes on an easy road.

The last time I was there a couple of years back they were proud of that fact.
You have to drive to Cottonwood to go to Wal Mart, some 17 miles South of the Town of Sedona.

A friend of mine just found a job here, actually 2 of them did. I'm not saying it's a thriving employment mecca but it's possible for some with some dilligence.

It sounds like the poster is looking for a break of some sort from the big city so this might be a good option.

PS Camp Verde has even cheaper lot rent on RV spaces but it won't be as nice from what I can tell (maybe I'm wrong though).

I think you're right about the RV spaces in Camp Verde vs. the Cottonwood ones. Quite a bit cheaper. I have heard that the one adjacent to I-17 near Middle Verde Rd. are priced very reasonably.

I don't currently live in any of the above mentioned communities, but I have lived in both Prescott and Flagstaff, and have visited Sedona, Camp Verde, and Cottonwood. The train thing in Flagstaff, I don't think the horns would be an issue...they've stopped blowing them as of this past February unless it's an emergency situation. But it is true that the college students will be competing for all of the service-type, entry level jobs. However, I would say, as someone who has done hiring in the past, I would take a mature adult over a college student any day. Employers up there have to know that those college students are going to be gone at some point, sometimes sooner rather than later, and you could definitely try to sell yourself as being more stable...provided that is actually your intent (to hang around for a while). Prescott, from what I remember, is also a tough market for the service jobs. Sedona is expensive, but I don't know that this should rule it out more than any place else. I would say that if you are able, visit each place, decide how you would prioritize living in each place based on cost and preference, and then apply for jobs in your top two choices. Since you have an RV, you aren't dependent per se on housing as much as others would be, so you could be more flexible in your choice.

Camp Verde is owned by Western Horizons membership rv corp if I remember right.
They do have work camper positions open at many if not all of their parks. 15-20 hours will pay for your rent and most of the utilities and they're not horrible to work with.
I'd look into that as a way to relocate if I was still a full timer.
