Was Walmart designed primarily so that RV would have a free place to sleep? While I don't like being parked next to a noisy truck, I have no more right to park at Walmart than they do.
Truck stops exist because truckers need to drive as long as possible to stay profitable, and then need to rest a certain amount (by law). When its time for them to rest, they don't fit many places. Most towns and cities have banned them from parking with in the limits (even at Walmart), rest areas are getting closed down to save money (and those that are open fill up quickly), so what are they supposed to do?
We, on the other hand, have more options, including all those campgrounds.
