Episode 170: Are Walmart Parking Lots Safe for RVers?

This is the largest RV park that we have stayed in. It was better than we thought it would be. The spaces are fine, all gravel with a cement pad. There was room behind our unit to play a bit with our dog. Out side the park you could walk your dog in the desert for as far as you like. The park is impeccable, clean, they even run street cleaners around, and all facilities were clean.

If there are lots of other nice stores nearby, the police will be around. If there are bars on windows nearby, the police will also be around but you shouldn’t be.

Tiffany We loved our stay in Sam’s RV.

Thanks for sharing this great information. Sue We have a Winnebago Itasca very good condition looks good. Some campgrounds have discriminated against us staying at their campground because our unit is too old. Anything over 10 years is consider out of date. Some of these campgrounds should take a look at what they are offering, which is not much. So far we have been very lucky at Walmart, rest areas and truck stops. RamingtonStall Given the fact that payments can go on for 20 years, those campgrounds are idiots.
