I agree with the OP, we are the customers and a smart business owner might consider providing what the customer wants. The small in-town businesses went belly up with the miserable parking.

When we travel, and need to stop for the night, we look for casinos (if close by). We love them. Most have nice lounges with live music, drinks we don't carry in the MH, and steak houses with extensive wine lists. We don't gamble, but we like to "people watch", and eat good. We (mostly) stay away from "all you can eat" buffets (too many calories), and we like to fit in our clothes.

If there are no casinos in the area, we go for Wallmart (especially if we are running short on some groceries/drinks/dog food etc.). We sleep, go shopping for necessities early in the morning (the store is almost empty, and no lines), and hit the road again. On to another lake, river, ocean beach, national park, or a city we never saw before. If we like the "day stop" a lot, we might stay night or two, but if we pick another "target" for the next day, we leave after dinner, drive into the night until I get tired, and hit the Walmart again.

We pass on many enticing RV parks (on some lakes, or even state parks) if we see too many RVs there. We try to be alone, and have plenty of room. Mostly staying away from everybody. Extended stays are at the friend's properties (up to a week), where we go horse back riding, shooting, working the field, working with their animals (as they do at our place). Sometimes I help building barns/stables, fixing cars/farm equipment, etc. In the evening we make a good dinner (I am a hobby chef), and party with them. At first, friends were almost offended when we purchased our MH, because we declined staying in their guest houses and/or guest rooms. We prefer to sleep/shower in our own "home on wheels".

That's how we do it. It works for us.
