All I want to do is stop at a place very near the highway. As I was looking for CG they all seamed small winding roads to get to. Seeing as where I want to stop is near mountains. I appreciate all the feedback. And actually on this trip we decided to drive thru to our CG and got there around 11PM. Were going again in 8 day and this time we are stoping as we'll have the grandkids and a full RV. So I'm gonna try the WM or Sams. I decided I'll call ahead, no jacks, one slide so we can all sleep. be there at dark and gone by 9AM. Geni only if it's too cold for the grandkids And yes were gonna go buy stuff we'll wait till were there to load up that way we'll support the store.
Have a great time! My granddaughter (14 yrs old) thinks that it's a real hoot to stay at WalMart overnight! We've only done it seven times since 2007 and only twice with her with us.

When our son was a WalMart manager he said every overnighter was worth $150 - $175 in store sales on average!

When we travel from our home in WI to our home in AZ, we will attempt to book a CG by phone in mid afternoon. I pull a 26' trailer and we are 75' overall in length. Can't always find a CG that can handle us without unhooking, so WM is our alternative. With permission, we will deploy all slides and put the jacks down, usually on wooded pads that we carry for soft areas. We prefer a campground, but it bugs me to have to pay $35-$45 for a spot to sleep for 7-8 hours. No problem at Wally World.

I can believe that. If the store has a Murphy's out front I will spend that much in gas alone. In addition we stock up on food and any RV supplies that we need such as the black tank additive or new water filters, etc, etc.

Differing opinions, but I appreciate the Walmarts we stay at when we only want a parking spot for the night.
