I made this list by driving from our lot in the foothills west on the South Frontage Road towards downtown. First, up is Wally’s World. This looks like a small place from the parking lot, but inside is huge! They have just about everything you will find in a Camping World store but cheaper. There are bins and bins of hardware of the common sizes an RVer would use. These folks also have a large store in the Arizona Marketplace flea market. The owners of Wally’s World also operate Novus Auto Glass where you can have your RV or tow car’s windshield repaired or replaced.
Moving slightly east, we cross over to the south side of Thirty Second Street and enter the Arizona Marketplace. This is a very nice flea market. All the stalls and walkways are covered by metal roofing and the floor is concrete. There are several hundred businesses here and room for several hundred more. Many of these businesses have RV stuff, but there is much, much, more. Clothing, furniture, hot-tubs, fresh vegetables, and so much more is available here. The website is http://arizonamkt.com/
I left the Arizona Marketplace and headed east on the South Frontage Road a short distance to the RV Connection and Satellite Electronics, Inc. This has been my go-to place for RV parts and other stuff since we started coming here. The Satellite Electronics part of the business is at one end. These people know satellite TV. Period. If you have a question, they can answer it. They stock a large assortment of systems from Dish and DirecTV as well as antenna components from Winegard. In the parts store is a huge collection of almost everything you could need in a well laid out store. Their website is http://www.rvconnectionparts.com
Next we continue east on the South Frontage Road to the Southwest Exchange Home and RV Superstore. Even Kathy likes this place as they have kitchen stuff, rugs and carpets, and other household items. The main event is the huge selection of RV items to rival a Camping World. On the side of the store near the door is the Pooch Parlor professional grooming and self service dog wash.
