We just returned from Colorado where we visited our son and family as well as the Durango area. Leaving with the 5iver in a couple of weeks foe the month of Oct in NC.

Would like to see a pic of your Real Lite.

Ok new to this can I or can't I stay overnite at wal-mart parking lot? Where we live I see Rv parked there all the time but never with slide out or awning out. Will rest stops let you get a quick nap of a couple hrs.?

To keep you from reading 361 pages of Walmart the answer is mostly yes just remember its not a RV resort pull in sleep a couple of hours buy something and leave.

You can overnight/camp at Walmart as long as there's no signs prohibiting it.
As far as slides, awnings, generators, etc., you can use them. Walmart doesn't have any rules against their use. Most posts on here against using your slide or awning are just what others think you should or should not do, it's nothing to do with Walmart camping policies.

Enjoy your stay at WM....and we'll leave a parking lot light on for ya.

I have a new word for you guys " Wallyturtle" someone who pulls into a walmart parking lot but is afraid to use the slides in fear of Rver persecution.

Yes....no...and...questions about rest stops run a high risk of being considered "off-topic", so............

Just watch out for the "WalMart RV Police". There are quite a few of them and many of them post on this thread.

IMHO a rotisserie chicken from the deli will help you rest better.

Look on the bright side, less wear and tear on the slides when you stay the night at Walmart.

Now I do pull my side out, otherwise I cant get to the living room or the bed.

Gank, you can setup and camp for free at our toy run any time you feel like coming up the third weekend in September. Our little town just hosted a tad over 1400 bikes and riders and we had an absolute wonderful time. We had everything in the parking lot from huge DPs to pup tents and they all partied like crazy with us.

You have a great looking set up for yourself. Safe Travels.

Nitrohorse is correct. Some folks are afraid they are offending someone if they use their slide or generator. Look, on some trailers you can't even walk through the dern thing without moving out the slides. The parking lots are big and there aren't usually many RV's there to cause a problem. Most managers ask that you keep to the parameter of the lot. Not up by the front door! I've seen a Montana with all FOUR slides out,... wasn't in anyone's or a bother in any way.

As far as "Walmart Police" (or security guards) I've NEVER seen any.

Cracker Barrel also allows RV's to overnight park. Earlier in the evening you may find four-wheelers in the RV spots but by dark there are usually plenty of room. I like CB's. They open early and have a great breakfast combo for about $8.
I'm sure other stores or malls would allow overnight parking by RVer's if they would only ask.

Thats nice of you to stick up for Rooster but I'm sure he wasn't offended. There are two types of wally dockers here ... wally turtles and wally birds...... slides in and slides out.... maybe we should take a poll.
