Stopped into the Buc-ee's in Florence South Carolina (I-95) on our way to Myrtle Beach. I can't believe they did not provide for RV parking. There are NO RV spaces, not for motorhomes, not for tour busses, not for travel trailers...NONE. Genius, pure genius. I know they are not a truck stop so no semi tractor trailers....but no RV spaces?? Really?

You accomplished one thing, you made me look it up, as I'd never heard of Buc-ee's , had no idea what it was.

They've learned their lesson from Wal*Mart evidently. Get in, gas up and eat, get out.

When we lived in Ewe-stun (about 15 long years), we always liked to stop a Buc-ee's since it was the cleanest travel stop with the widest selection of food, drink, snacks (and in most spots in the area) hunting supplies if needed. However, their business model, it appears, is based on volume and rapid sales. An RV taking up multiple spots at the gas island, even if they move after filling (many didn't) or having to have the real estate for rig parking, probably no longer makes sense for Buc-ee's market.

I observed many cars that did not move from the pump after filling up...the drivers just walked inside for however long they wanted to. Saw many still right in the same place too as we left. Buc-ee's is building what will be the largest one so far in Kodak TN at 76,000 sq. feet. That's right at exit 407 into the Pigeon Forge area and 10's of thousands of RVers come to the area. They will miss that business if they don't accommodate their parking...but then again, they must not want them. Oh well.

We have the largest Buc-Ee's right now, in New Braunfels, TX. It has more than enough room for RVs to park and plenty of maneuvering room in/around all the pumps.

Some of the older, smaller ones don't have RV room. I'm very surprised that the one in Florence was recently built without RV room.
