But they didn't even buy the ticket at Walmart. It appears that they just happened to be staying at a Walmart when they discovered they had won.

And I thought we weren't suppose to "camp" at Walmart.

Dear Fellow RVers,
Some of the most respected RV consumer clubs have joined together to support your right to park on private businesses’ parking lots overnight under the following code of conduct:

Industry-Sanctioned Code of Conduct (RVers’ Good Neighbor Policy)
1. Stay one night only!
2. Obtain permission from a qualified individual.
3. Obey posted regulations.
4. No awnings, chairs, or barbecue grills.
5. Do not use hydraulic jacks on soft surfaces (including asphalt).
6. Always leave an area cleaner than you found it.
7. Purchase gas, food, or supplies as a form of thank you, when feasible.
8. Be safe! Always be aware of your surroundings and leave if you feel unsafe.

That's a bunch of fooey, made up by a sanctimonious group(s) and has been posted before. You do not have a "right" to park any place. It's a privileged granted by the store owner. And, they do not post RV regulations unless required by local municipalities, which are often lobbied for by greedy camp ground owners.

Good to see you back Dunner and I agree. Walmart's corporate FAQs still reads the same
Quote:
While we do not offer electrical service or accommodations typically necessary for RV customers, Walmart values RV travelers and considers them among our best customers. Consequently, we do permit RV parking on our store parking lots as we are able. Permission to park is extended by individual store managers, based on availability of parking space and local laws. Please contact management in each store to ensure accommodations before parking your RV.

And as discussed previously Walmart is limited by local by-laws.

You kill me Dunner..I guess those guidelines, if posted by escapees, is intended to provide me with some common sense. Cuz you know, without that sage direction, if I'm permitted to park at a particular Walmart, I just may have a block party, including disco lights and fireworks.

Don't forget the garage sale, popcorn and a tequila slushy machine.

Appears to be common sense guidelines, but I have seen some very stupid things done by "campers," to include allowing their pet to relieve themselves on Walmart property and then the owner strolling away leaving his dogs mess for others to deal with. I have also seen "campers" draining their gray water on the asphalt, and leaving their trash on the ground as they pull out. Putting awnings out and lawn chairs would appear to be going a step further than Walmart intends for providing a parking place for your RV. Not sure why people with otherwise common sense don't understand this. I have a suggestion for you, ask that responsible person just how far you should go while "parked" on their property, if that responsible person tells you, just do as you please then I guess you have a green light to ignore what otherwise would be common sense behavior. Just an observation from one who has "parked" overnight at many Walmarts and never felt the need to camp there.

The problem is, we're dealing with PEOPLE! They don't always see eye to eye.
