Have often seem motorhomes (and some TT's) at our home area Wal Mart overnighting. Have read about the same here. Just wondering, is there a proper Wal Mart procedure?? Certain part of the lot?? Ask permission at customer service??

For what we spent stocking up our new Prowler they might owe us a couple of nights!!!

pleeeeeeeeeeease, not again

All kidding aside, you'll find probably in excess of 500 posts when you do a search on "WalMart." Good luck.

Please pay no attention to the whiners, you have every right to ask the question and expect an answer instead of a flip response. It's just that most newcomers ask the same Walmart question and we have a few here forget they were once new to this forum and had to ask questions that had been asked many times over.

The correct protocol would be to check with the store manager abd see if there are any objections. Try to use Walmart only as a stop over to get a few hours of sleep. It's much safer than having an accident. Some of the folks on this forum claim to have seen people with their slides out, grills going and setup for the W/E. I personally have never encountered "campers" at a Walmart, just people catching a few Z's.

Welcome to rv.net

BTW If the complainers were really tired of the Walmart posts, they wouldn't bother to read them.

Welcome and ask away. What bothers me is people spending bandwidth complaining instead of spending the same bandwidth helping.

There is some helpful WalMart information on this website:
http://www.freecampgrounds.com/
As well as information about other places such as Flying J truck stops and Cracker Barrel restaurants to park for a rest.

Hello Pat,
And Welcome to the friendly roads of RVing.
Had an old Chicken Colonel put his arm around my shoulders one day and say, "Chief, the only dumb question is the one you do not ask". Yes, Walmart parking question come up from time to time and the askers are looking for valid answers. You want to see Walmart parking? Come to Anchorage, Alaska in the summer. Looks like a RV convention with every make and model being shown. IMO park, ask, and do as told.
Good luck and have fun.
