My son lives in a city with restricted number of days one can park an RV on the street at their home or other location. It's enforced.

you would have to be very choosy as to where to park at night. The way the crime rate is going, it wouldn't be the police chasing you away, it would be a street gang banging on you RV with baseball bats, or worse...

Your age is showing. A street gang with baseball bats? That's so 1959.

I 'assume' you are referring to Stealth Camping ----------parking for the night on residential/public streets or perhaps in a parking lot of a closed business??


Stealth Camping can get you a 'parking ticket' or a tap tap tap on door by authorities informing you of the need to move along.

Recent event in Las Vegas......
Lady that run down a group of pedestrians killing one and injuring many others claims it was due to security guards at various casinos rousting her/making her move along cause she was attempting to sleep in her car.

There are a numerous 'spots' one can overnight in w/o issues (provided that local ordinances don't prohibit)........Walmarts, Cabelas, Cracker Barrel, Rest Areas, Truck Stops etc. and even campgrounds.

Just don't try 'camping' on my street..........neighbors all know who belongs and it won't be the local sheriff rousting you. It will be a group of old codgers with baseball bats :B

This may be slightly off topic from the OP question but it brings up a question about interstate rest areas in states that say there's no overnight parking allowed.
How can they force you to leave if you say you're too tired to drive any longer? I would think the lawyers would be lined up to take your case and sue the authorities if you were forced to leave and had a serious accident just down the road.
Also, the rest areas are always full of truckers who have a mandatory 10 hours of rest before they can legally start the next work day.
We stopped at a rest area in MS where the signs indicated no overnight parking. It was late and I asked the security guard who was patrolling the area about a time limit for parking. He said there was no limit that he knew of so we stayed the night with no issues.
Thoughts??

You are better off in a truck stop ie: flying J or similar with 24 hour services instead of a pull off the road rest area along the roadside. Never pull onto a side street to stop overnight. We will not even stop in a walmart overnight anymore.

Why not? Best value for money in the country. And secure.

Couple of times we have parked at Walmart or Home depot after getting permission from the store only to get moved on by people in uniform because it was a NOP city. Once a ranger kicked us out of a fishing reserve in Montana. Supposedly no overnighting and a "concerned" local dobbed us in.

No. Once had a local officer knock on the door of the fiver in a Walmart lot at about 9:00pm. Lights were on outside and he was concerned about battery. Nice guy. We talked about 15 minutes and e admired the rockwood. Left me a card with cell # to call if any problems came up while in town.

Doesn't common sense come to play here, if your the only one in the area think again. Whats the old saying "security in numbers" 40+ years and when I'am in transit I use Wally World. Homie Depot, rest areas, YaTa Yata Yata ect ect. but never off the beaten path. See ya down the road.

A friend of mine several years ago, hit the road after work and traveled a couple of hundred miles to a discount mall where his wife wanted to shop the next morning before moving on to their destination. After several hours sleep he was awakened by a knock on the door, seems a local resident didn't think his parking there was a good idea. He told the officer he would be happy to move except that he had had a couple of beers. The officer told him to stay put and he would let dispatch know not to bother him anymore that night.
