That is such a cool RV. I saw one in a Wallmart, but not opened up, just shopping, later that afternoon they pulled into the site arcoss the road from us in the campground we were in. Yes I went and talked to them and got a great demenstration and tour as it was set up.

Im on the road for the ride, not the destination... and you meet the nices people there. BTW many campsites dont want bikers or BikerRVers in thier site... wait till I get my new MH.
Now I do pull my side out, otherwise I cant get to the living room or the bed.

I'm sure you could use a few as long as you return them when you're done. Some stores have swing sets outside. These help keep the kids busy while at the supercenter and resort.
If there's no chairs, turn a few shopping carts on their sides and you have seating and a table.
If you're feeling energetic and creative, buy whatever you need or want from the store. Use it during your stay at the supercenter, and then return it when you're ready to leave.
For example, you can buy a deluxe patio set, a nice LED large screen TV, surround sound, and a small, enclosed fire pit and enjoy them for however long you're staying at the resort. When it's time to vacate the parking spot, simply take everything back into customer service and you're not out a single penny.
Walmart is camper friendly.....

Sorry, I think those positions are no longer available, sort of like the former 'Walmart Greeter.'

Did they outsourced the position to a call center in Nigeria?

I believe the Greeter position has been outsourced to Forest Lawn. The role of Parking Lot Activities Director has been filled by busybody volunteers that think they know how others should behave when stopping in a Walmart lot.
