One thing I dont get, is why folks with smaller RV's feel the need to pull into busy Walmarts, and take up 5 or 6 parking spaces ! I've seen this with MH's, tavel trailers, and small 5vers.
My motorhome is 36', and I can fit in 2 spaces. Why do people 36' and less think they deserve to take 6 ??

Ease of entry/exit.. if you park normal, you just may find that your 32' will not turn tight enough..

But it wont always be that way.... besides, if you park 'with the lines', how are the Semi's suppose to pull in 'across the lines' with you blocking them? Best to simply all park in the same orientation.

But my bed is N - S and the beds in semi's are E - W.

How do we decide who gets the heartburn or pukey tummy from sleeping with their feet higher than their head?

Or do we just go inside and buy some of Dunners OTC happy tummy pills and go to sleep and wait for the WW Police to roust us at 3am?

How well can you pull out if people park on either side of you?
Not at WalMart but (52' long) did at Hershey (during show) and caught the person that would have blocked me in when there were 3 of us that were parked out in left field, next to each other.
I tried to stay away and park as conventional as possible. The bus (American Tradition) was completely blocked in. Glad my trailer was only 96" wide.

Parked for the night at the Walmart just north-west of Kalamazoo, MI, sitting inside, reading iRV2 and listening to my champion generator on it's mount purring outside charging the batteries up till it gets too late to run it.

Nice! the only thing better to listen to than a Champion generator would be a Briggs or some heavy metal metal rap music. Don't worry, I'm sure all the other WM customers enjoy it.
BTW, I have a Champion generator for when I'm in the boonies.

Doubt they can hear it, between the wind and me being about as far as you can get from the walmart entrance and no one's parking out here with me, as it's cold as the dickens outside and a long walk to the walmart doors from here . I know, I've already done the walk and listened myself .

I had a custom basket made to which I affixed my Champion so that I could fire it up and use it at anytime without needing to unload it, just fire it up and snake the extension cord over to it from the camper's plug.
