Any time boondocking (or more often Wally-docking) the usual string of ‘if you can’t afford a site you shouldn’t be traveling in an RV’ posts appear.

Most of the time I travel, which is often, it’s for ‘work’ (a well-paid hobby / passion actually) and rarely stay in a campground. Probably out of 20 nights of traveling I will be in a c/g 1 night. As was mentioned previously, I drive a fully self-contained motorhome. I am in the process of building a truck conversion unit that will be even more independent.

Even if I was inclined to stop at a c/g I drive long days, I want to be at my destination, not spend days wasting time, so I rarely pull off the road before 10pm and usually I’m rolling again before 7am, I’m just too polite to disturb a bunch of people trying to enjoy their vacation time.

You are welcome to travel/overnight in any manner you wish that doesn’t conflict with local laws and private property rights. Those discussions you mention often include RVers ranting against those laws and rights. They argue their wants and desires should supersede those laws and private rights. They propose boycotts and suggest all sorts of “work arounds” that parse the English language that clearly violates the intent of those laws and policies. Things like “I am not camping, only sleeping overnight therefore the no camping law doesn’t apply”. Or maybe “arrive after midnight and now you aren’t staying overnight “. And off course there is always the put the burden and decision on someone else with “just ask at customer service if the sign says it’s illegal to park overnight “ because everyone knows a Walmart employee’s permission supersedes local laws.
And finally, personal opinion does not trump those laws or rights either. Not wanting to disturb others doesn’t suddenly make a no parking rule void.


I wouldn’t say, based on personal experience, that it is “often” anything to do with illegal parking, it has usually been with regards to parking legally such as in rest areas or commercial parking lots where such is allowed.
