How not to stay overnight in a Wal-Mart parking lot

This is what you should NOT do in a Wal-Mart parking lot. While it's true that many RVers spend the night in a Wal-Mart parking lot, they do so in self-contained RVs -- without putting out slides, or setting out lawn chairs or barbecue grills. The idea is to blend in. In this 30-second video, a couple of guys set up camp with . . . well, see for yourself. Tip: Never do this. Never!


  1. Why would you discriminate against him? Just because you have an expensive rv and he doesnt?

  2. Typical "me first" attitude. If you don't understand why this is way out of line, you never would. Unfortunately, it's clowns like this who ruin it for everybody. When they close all Walmart RV stayovers, they will be happy because "justice" has been served for the masses.

  3. It wouldn't surprise me if he was a local anti-RV'er trying to make a point. There is no reason he couldn't sleep in his vehicle. Been there, done that many times.

  4. "Why would you discriminate against him? Just because you have an expensive rv and he doesnt?" Because it's a PARKING LOT, not a campground.

    A PARKING LOT for vehicles.


  5. I would be more interested in seeing what the parking spots looked like after the vehicles left.

    Just because someone chooses a more green option than RVers he shouldn't be knocked.

    Besides he has a vehicle, most likely filled to the roof and there would be insufficient security to put his property.

    I remember that picture of an RVer emptying his waste water tank in a Walmart lot. Now that is something to complain about.

    Get a life ... or go pick up litter i the lot.

  6. The car would be more comfortable to sleep in, especially if it is windy (which it looks like) or rainy or cold (they are wearing coats). I'd think the car seats would be more comfortable too.
