When I am traveling either in my MH or not, I will stop at a well lit rest area for a few hours sleep. I have not had any problems.

I love the iPhone app Trucker Path. It tells u about rest stops and truck stops, how many sites, when it fills up, what amenities and restaurants are around. The truckers also post reviews about services, cleanliness and negatives like hookers😳. Gives u agood idea of whether or not to stay there.

We always stay at a campground. I always plan the trip and find a campground at around the 350 - 450 mile range. That way we get a good rest, and the truck gets a rest. Especially on those long hot summer days. 2011 Silverado 2500HD Duramax / Allison 2013 Sabre 34REQS - 6. 2015 Camping 42 nights. 2016 Camping 0 nights.

we usually travel long distances in winter or spring and temps can get a little cold, but I and the wife do rest areas after a long day of traveling... the truck stops can be noisy with motors running and trucks pulling in and out all night, but it does not keep me from sleeping 4-5 hours with a good warm blanket...

I've stopped in rest areas for a few hours of sleep when I need to. I have to use the semi parking anyway.

May be a dumb question, but when you pull over for the nite in a rest area...is there any point in dropping down the stabilizer jacks? I'm guessing just keeping it attached to the truck is fine.
