Just for a quick overnight sleep, can we use rest areas where truckers park, no slide out just climb in the bedroom and sleep. We are in Forest River Evo, T2460RL. Going north on I-5 near Buttonwillow.

If you can sleep with trucks coming in and out and idling all night, sure.

I've done it. Worst night sleep I ever had. Lots of noise. The noisiest? A refridgeration unit running on a big truck.


There is something special about camping in an RV.

The 'quick' part may be how quickly you can get out of there.

The answer is yes, it is legal to stay for 8 hours.

I did it with the generator running and the AC on to creature some white noise when we rented a class C, with my trailer I've only done the RV side of a Flying J which has worked well a few times when driving to Florida (nobody wants me rolling into a campground at 1am).

Having a reefer driver in the family, would you believe that they can't sleep with the reefer off?
