Questions about Mojave, CA

I may have the opportunity to work a contract for Space Ship Company in Mojave. I will have to find a place to stay while there for probably a year. Any locals have any input on what is available or the area in general. I grew up in the desert, so I am familiar with the heat. Open to Airbnb type situation, rent a room in a home...or an extended stay or cheap apartment. What kind of coin is it going to cost me? If somebody has a driveway or place I can park my teardrop and get an electrical hookup, I might be interested in roughing it.

Thinking of bringing out my XJ and my teardrop for getting away for weekends.

Re: Questions about Mojave, CA

If you want to rough it in the trailer with water and electricity hook ups for a few nights, or a few weeks if Lois likes you (until you get settled), this place is less than 20 miles from the airport.

Re: Questions about Mojave, CA

I am still out here, although not as active as I used to be. My son however will be pulling my 88 XJ out of it's desert hibernation over the summer and wants to make it his daily driver. He has been driving it and beating it off-road on desert trails accessed out of my parent's ranch for years, so it will take some sweat to tighten up the suspension (and I expect he will want to fix the air conditioning). We will see how it goes.
