There is a correct statement.

I can safely say our local wal mart is not going to allow camping.

If folks want to shop at Wal-Mart to save money, more power to them. I shop there because it's convenient and reasonable, for the most part. I don't go to KOA or closest campground because it's not convenient. It has nothing to do with paying to camp or not paying to camp. That is why I bought a motorhome, for the self-contained convenience it offers. However, if Wal-Mart charged $40 a night, I would overnight somewhere else that doesn't charge $40 a night. Why pay for something I don't need?

Maybe my situation is different than many posters, but I go on vacation in my RV to get away from places like Wal-Mart. Since I've spent exactly $0.00 at W-M in the past 10 years, they won't miss me anyway.

I would like to know, from those that oppose Walmart parking, where you overnight in the winter when all, or most, of the campgrounds are closed in the northern USA and southern Canada.

There are only two kinds of RV folks. Those that sometimes overnight at Wal-Mart, and those that lie

(joke, people, joke!)

They don't rest at all...they drive straight through.

I originally bought my Motor Home to travel this great country, to see the purple mountain majesties, the fuited plains, and enjoy the beauty of America from sea to shinig sea. I thought that was what Rving was all about but I see once again I'm wrong and missing the ashphalt parking lots lined with majestic light standards and bussiling shoppers. Must be something great about it so next time I hit the road I'll try this new beauty of America. WAL MART PARKING LOTS

So is there a difference between camping and parking overnight? We do put out the sides when in a WW parking lot, but we dont light a camp fire.

I don't camp at Walmart or Mall parking lots but when my wife goes shopping it sure seems like it.

Me too! That is why we have a class A motorhome, for the huge windshield and the great view it affords. At night, when we can't really see the purple mountain majesties or the fruited plains, we like to overnight at Wal-Mart or some other accomodating place. I wouldn't say staying at Wal-Mart was part of the beauty of America, but I would say it's convenient.

What really blows me away is the RV parks where RV's are parked one beside another with hardly any trees and no privacy. I see this all the time as we travel this beautiful county. I do not see the appeal of that, at all. Might just as well spend the night at Wall-Mart or Sam's or K-Mart or Costco, etc. I do understand folks that want to go to a destination and spend a week if that destination provides something they can't get at home. But, home for me is towering fir trees, an hours drive to Mt. Rainier, loads of rivers and lakes, a couple hours to the Pacific Ocean, etc. I just want to see something different when we travel. To each his own!

I'm with you! Slides out, jacks down, but no campfire. Maybe because we are both from western Washington? Something in the water, 'ya think?
