    A trucker friend told me that one time he forgot to put his 1/2 full zip lock bag in the trash, as he was going down the highway he saw it and threw it out the window, well there was a car passing him and it hit the upper part of their windshield and exploded! This did in no way help to improve race relations.

    I like parking at a Macy’s parking lot, I’m sort of an upscale guy 😇 Nordstrom’s is good too.

    You may not see this comment since it's been 5 months since you put out this video but did you ever stop to think the "guy" next to you might have had to sleep with an oxygen concentrator on all night. It seems like you could be a little bit more giving and chalk it up to that's what you get in an "rv anywhere" parking situation.

    Ironic, walmart is probably the main reason so many folks are living in vehicles these days!

    Walmarts in FL have had to stop parking there because folks set up as in a campground, taking up many spaces they need for parking. Then these idiots leave their trash just any where. If they are dumping their tanks as well, who can blame Walmart for changing the policies?

  • Jean Claude Boutique

    HI, It's same every where... I am in Québec, Canada and Walmart parking It's over for all vehicle rv, van,etc... bye

    Why is Walmart is no longer accepting over nighters is because so many have abused the policy.

    Walmarts right next to major highways where everyone is going to want to camp out rather than get a hotel room are the most likely to not want you. Those not on highways that don't get that constant flow are more likely to not care and not have policies in place to kick you out. People will abuse anything, go to the places where hordes of people haven't abused things. General rule - do your shopping at the Walmart, park in a distant spot near where the employees park, and out at daylight and you'll be fine almost anywhere.

    Hi there Robin! I've been watching your channel only for a week or so and just wanted to THANK YOU for the great content, great (but real...*GASP*!!) attitude and...this almost makes me feel bad to say but, thank you for your cute and short intro. There's nothing worse than binging videos and having get through a 1 minute loud obnoxious intro for a 3 minute video. You're always to the point but still get your info across. Might start my own channel soon (subject varies) and your format is one that I will incorporate! Great job and stay safe out there. You're a champ!

    if you are parked overnight in your sleeping and the cops come to knock on the door trying to wake you up to leave just don't answer they can't prove you're in there you could say you left the RV there and went to a friend's house to sleep and just leave in the morning when they're out there they'll never know they're not going to tow you off and if they start tow you off say hey what's going on I just woke up because all the noise I'm leaving

    the problem with the Walmarts around me in Fort Worth Texas is you've got a few RVs at Park out there overnight but you've got 5 6 7 sometimes 10 semi trucks which sleeper sleeping in them running all night it looks like a truck even have some 18 wheelers with the sleeper and their trailer with cars on it I saw one truck the car hauler with about 12 cars on it parked overnight it looks like a truck stop out far out there I haven't told the manager what's going on there's so many trucks at work she said we're trying to get him out of here and someone been there for 3 days people that live in the area and come home for the weekend I understand they have to find a place to park their truck but they should have that lined up they know they're going to do it every weekend you can't just park it at a Walmart parking lot for Friday night to some Monday morning some time do that it's a parking lot find a place to park if you have to pay you pay you don't park semis all weekend while you're home at Walmart

    What happens if a city passes a law saying you cant spend over night in your home. Just because its a rule or law doesnt mean its legal

    With unemployment down to 3.7% now , there should be much less need for the Walmart service than in 2013 .

    Out of Curiosity do Flying J Truckstops generally allow overnight parking. I've considered getting an RV for my work nights because it would be easier on me due to the travel distance.

    Overnight parking was banned at my local Walmart when commercial trucks knocked over three parking lot light poles in one week while backing up and turning around. It costed thousands of dollars to replace those poles. Truck drivers also used our parking lot as a toilet leaving feces, toilet paper, and other trash behind. Sleeping and leaving was not a problem but trashing and destroying property can't be tolerated anymore.

    In Australia we have a system where local towns offer long and or short term parking for travellers. This has come about from a campaign by Campervan Motorhome Club Australia (CMCA) where the financial benefits for the town from people buying locally. When they don't have to pay for facilities they don't need in a resort style park they can spend on fuel, food, medications. We have met some wonderful people some who have become great friends while traveling. We always dispose of rubbish correctly an increasing number of towns are installing dump points for black and grey water disposal and water supply. Other places where independent camping is frowned upon are finding the surrounding towns that are RV friendly have higher tourist numbers and a more vibrant economy. I acknowledge some people are just grubs while the majority are just nice people on a limited income trying to see the country.

    You're gonna encounter bad neighbors sometimes, cause people are crappy. I can't sleep without a fan anyway so I would have to come up with a way to run a fan by my head to drown out crappy parking lot neighbors.

    I hate to say this, but this is partially Walmart's fault. You can't just offer free RV parking without giving people a list of rules. You might say that it's common sense not to run a generator or leave trash, but some people clearly don't have common sense and need things to be spelled out for them.

    Mr Sam allowed rv's to stay overnight not live on the property. Too many people have abused the privilege.
