Wal Mart and Camper Stuff

Went to the NEW Wal Mart here in town yesterday and picked up a 25 ft. 30 Amp extension cord for $42.00. That's $2.00 cheaper than Camping World members price, and 40 miles closer home. They also had sewer hose and connections, rv toilet paper, pressure regulators, water hose, and other stuff. Prices seemed close to Camping World prices. I don't remember the other Wal Mart in town carrying this stuff, but you might want to check the one near you.

As far as I know every Walmart has an RV Accessories area, some larger than others. We bought out Lynx Levelers and wheel chocks there, way cheaper than CW or any other place to think of it. Toilet chemicals, sewer hose kits and water hoses etc are all available. I would recommend any beginner or veteran to look there first before going anywhere else. The money saved can be used to buy some other necessary things. In the automotive area they have every replacement bulb needed as well.

The camper's friend, they even let you stay in their parking lots provided there's no city ordinance against it.

The Super-Walmarts have everything you could possibly need. I don't remember any week long camping trips when we didn't end up going there for something.

That's where I buy all of my chemicals for the camper and I bought a battery for the camper there last Spring, they have your standard needs for camping at a good price even back up cameras in the automotive section.

They also have a lot of money saving stuff for the creative shopper.

I got a small indoor/outdoor thermometer for $1. Stuck it in the fridge. The $3.50 catalog model I had fell apart! We got linens, kitchen stuff, all that either came out of our own house, yard sale, Walmart or the Dollar Store. Often, Walmart beats the Dollar Store.

When ever we are on the road we always try and find the Walmart, it's kinda like the Mcdonalds of the department store world, you always know what your gonna find. Saves a lot of time driving all around a strange town looking for several different stores to get what you need. I have seen RV stuff at every one, just like others have stated. It's also a lot closer to us than the Camping World.

That's when a GPS comes in handy, I have used it many times in PA and at Myrtle Beach last year. Walmart is listed under General Merchandise Store on my GPS. ( Garmin 750 )

We use CoPilot on the laptop. Version #11 added every Walmart in the country to Points of Interest.
Usually if you ask at the Campground Office, they know where everyone is that's nearby. We stayed at a campground near Scranton PA a few years ago and asked where the nearest Walmart is. The owner's reply was which one would you like to go to, We Have 3 all within 15 miles. 2 Super, 1 Regular.

Funny that you mention Scranton PA, We were there all day yesterday at University of Scranton for my daughters college lacross game. They played againest Marywood. Walmart seemed to be everywhere in the area that and Super K-Mart.

Thanks for this thread! I was at WM today in the camping section and never even thought to look in the automotive department for camper/trailer stuff. D'oh!
