If you mean "There are no hard and fast rules that apply at every Walmart," you're absolutely right.

If you mean "No Walmart has any rules for Overnight RV Parking," you're wrong. I've spoken to literally hundreds of Walmart Managers, both in person and on the telephone, and some of them have absolute rules for RVers who want to park in their parking lots. (I listed some of these in Post # 4201 in this thread.)

And if you mean "There are no rules so I can do whatever I want in any Walmart lot and to h*** with the consequences for me and every other RVer," then shame on you.

This is exactly what will get us all kicked out. We are guests there and we must act responsible. We have no "rights" to be there and as guests we should abide by their rules. Remember when you stay at Wal-Mart, you are representing not only yourself, but all RVers that want to stay there in the future.

I asked the security guard at Lowe's today and he said he would look the other way and not run anybody off if they parked on the outskirts of the lot. Has anybody overnighted at Lowe's? Don't remember ever seeing it posted.

Yet, there are apparently a lot of RVers whose attitude is still "Nobody is gonna tell ME what to do!" ... and who apparently figure since theirs is a mobile lifestyle, they can do what they want, move on, and let the consequences fall on someone else.

I've never tried it, but I have seen people camped at both Lowes and Home Depot. Not sure what the rules are, but there is a guy in an older M/H that's been camping at the local Home Depot for a week. I asked the Manager about it, he said "it's Walmart's fault, now everybody has do what Walmart does". Don't know if that's the "official" line, or just the local policy. So, if you're driving thru Idaho, know that at the Meridian exit, there is a Home Depot that apparently doesn't care if you camp out.

And repeated postings of the same idea will not change the minds of people
that think that way.

This thread has gone on for almost 3 YEARS and 4225 posts, I think it only
exists now to see just how long it will last. It just seems to say the same
things over and over. Oh well...

I hate this thread. I hate this thread. Why do I keep reading this thread? I hate this thread. OK. Besides, WM, Lowes and Home Depot, any other less obvious places anyone has over nighted.
