Wal Mart would be a lot nicer place to shop if they Banned most of their customers

Although I have considered it, overnighting at a Walmart is not really my style. I would MUCH rather stay at a CG....even a crappy one. I did stay at a Walmart once after being evacuated from St Mary Campground in GNP due to the fire at Rising Sun. I was very grateful for the opportunity as every CG between St Mary and Kalispell was full.

What I would like to see Walmart do (and I am surprised they don't already) is enforce a time limit of something like 12 hours...similar to rest areas in many states. Maybe even allow 24-48 hours I suppose. For all I know this may already be the rule, but it is certainly not being enforced if so.

I agree, staying at Walmart should be for no more that 12 hours and no slide outs and have to have a stamp on windshield saying what time you got there

I am not disagreeing with the idea but would like to point out that some floorplans (like our Rockwood 8289ws) require the slides to be out in order for the trailer to be used at all. The only things you can access while the slides are in are literally the bathroom and the buttons to put the slides out. Having "roadside" access to the trailer was on our wish list when shopping, but you cant have everything I guess!

My wife has a job where she sometimes doesn't get home until after 8pm on Thursday nights. I am a retired Fed and have a job now that allows me to have lots of time off. We live in central MD and if we want to camp some place further out we normally leave on Thursday night and drive for a few hours til say midnight or 0100 and get a hotel then finish the trip in the morning. We are camping by the afternoon. With the trailer we no longer plan on hotels. I would certainly have no problem stopping at a rest stop or a Wally for a few hours. In fact, we did that on our Hatteras trip a few months back. That was a Cracker Barrel. It's not about cheap. It's about saving time and getting to our camp ground. In a few months we plan a trip to Indiana. We are planning to make the trip back a two day affair and are planning to camp at a camp ground over night on the way home. The trip out will be the same deal I mentioned above. Leave after she gets off work and go until I find a place where we can stop for a few hours then finish the trip.

That's just what seems to work.

Oh God, me. I think their food is abysmal.
