You search out an RV park about half way.
That way you have power and water if needed.

Truckers do NOT like you taking one of "their" spots are rest areas.
Places like WalMart allow overnight parking in some places.....but not all.


So when are truckers the only one allowed to stop at a rest stop?

^ Maybe it's the snowflake truckers, who feel ,like, all entitled and stuff.

Hello, you’re all being conned by s once-and-done newbie poster with a ridiculous question bound to elicit lots of opinions.

Hello, driving a distance of more than one day from one park to the next. Where do I stop with my 30' travel trailer and truck for the night?


How about another RV park? They rent sites for the night, too!

I stop where ever it’s safe to stop. About all they can ask you to do is move, it’s usually posted if your not supposed to be there. If we are making tracks we don’t pay for a campground, we like rest areas, in the summer we run the generator for ac. Right along with the big rigs

Are rest areas really only for truckers or do they just think they are only for truckers?

Do truckers own the rest areas? I pay taxes too.

I did NOT say that, now did I ??
We are talking about staying overnight, not just stopping.

And while I don't totally agree with it, I can understand their point. Driving is their JOB. Laws require them to stop every XX hours and places to do that are not abundant. In some states, even the "rest areas" only have a few spots.

If regulations don't prohibit it, go ahead and park overnight in a "truck" spot at a rest area. But expect that you might not get much rest.
