And even that has a chance to happen with the right stuff, via a portable-camp-fire-pot, and you make sure there are no city laws being broke. We have stayed in a few different wally-lots and haven't had a trouble at all. Mgr of the stores allways seem to be very nice and bend over backwards to help in any way they can!

What I don't understand about WM parking lots is that you have to move your MH everyday. What do you do if you want to spend a week somewhere? Do you just find another WM? I'm trying to understand the motivation of staying in WM and how you sight see
My understanding of WM hospitality is for 1 overnight stop. I have heard of people who had a mechanical issue & have stayed at WM for a couple of days. I do believe most people just use the WM parking lot for an overnight while in route to either a campground, or boon docking on some other more desirable site. I use WM frequently when in route to another destination.

When we stay over night at walmarts when traveling it turns out to be the MOST expensive nights camping we encounter in our travels..........
It would be for sure a lot cheaper to go to a campground but then we would then un-hook the jeep and have to go shopping anyway..........

However I will not condemn your choice or your thinking. If Wal Mart is a good experience for you then enjoy yourself.
You are NOT wrong. Walmart, Cracker Barrel are for overnight Parking when driving between destinations. I'm new to RV'ing - only about 70 nights / 6000 miles - so I have yet to have any problem when overnighting in a Walmart / Cracker Barrel / church parking lot.

I just cannot justify paying $25+ to spend 12 - 14 hours in a "campground".

Good analogy. Pretty much the reason I do not visit a "campground" just to overnight. I do not put awning out or build fire if I'm only staying one night.

Let us remember the vastness of the Internet. For what ever link someone can find, there is another link and with most likely a different answer.

Read the part about "Glamping."

I'm so glad that I have reached the end of the Internet.
You got me. I intentionally did not choose any definition that included the words motor home.

1) Different strokes
2) Opinions are like....
3) RV'ers are not homogenous
4) As newer folks join, they comment and ask questions. Is that not part of mission?
5) I'm looking forward to sharing my opinion and remain open to those who do not share my opinion. I'm open to change.

Do as "YOU" want and don't worry about others..........If we all did the same thing when traveling we would all have trouble when we were done driving at the end of each day........
