I'm down at the Jersey shore at Capemay.
I had to go to walmarts and notice 5 MH park at walmart.
I do not agree with this but they had there slides out and few even had there awning out. I think they got here early probably a day sooner and waiting to get in to there campground.
I have stayed in a walmarts but did not put out the slides and well did not camp there.
O well just my two cents

Hey doodles the clown. You noticed 5 Motorhomes parked at Walmart with slides out and one with its awning out, you stayed at a walmart but kept your slides in, therefore you are not camping but the others were and you dont agree with it...... you dont like the others having their slides out because that sends a clear message that they are spending the night but people aren't smart enough to assume you are doing the same because your slides are in and maybe your lights are turned off? Look at all the replies..... if you were on tv you would be rich......

Given the sheer number of photos people have been taking of my rig, I thinks campers aren't terribly common out this away .
