I just found out this weekend that one of the Walmarts close to our home has metal poles hung over the entrances to their parking lot. The poles are hung at 10 ft 5 inches. I don't know if they don't want the RVers in their lot or if it's the big rigs as there are 2 truck stops on the other side of the interstate from this Walmart. I do know that the A/C on the top of my TT is higher than 10'5". My TT would have fit under if not for the A/C so I had to let all the cars that were back up behind me go around so I could back up. Fortunately all the people were friendly. Note to self...don't plan a trip to Sullivan Walmart with the TT attached.

I cant speak so much to their views on RV owners (they do claim to welcome us on their corporate website though). But as a former vendor that has delivered to local Walmarts in a "big rig", I can tell you they are very strict about trucks NOT being allowed in the front of the stores. There are always designated "truck" entrance/exits...usually behind the stores but sometimes down the outside edge of the parking lots depending on the layout.

Why not stop at a Flying J or the like? There are generators running all over the place so no need to worry about yours keeping people up. If I'm stopping for a quick shut eye I'll pull in to one of these, get food etc for the fam and we'll hit the hay. I have been in bad truck stops where an over night would be a questionable decision and it would be a complete no go for a family in an RV but so far I've been happy with every one I've stopped at. Definitely wouldn't break the chairs out though

I should have added that the DW decided she did not want to stock up for our trip the night before, that we would do it on the way to the CG.

Overnight parking may not be allowed by the city the Walmart is in. So regardless of the corporate policy it may be banned by a city ordinance.

You know when overnight parking is banned by a local ordinance Walmart's own drivers can not park there

Our Walmart has had the overhead hangers for a couple years now to direct delivery trucks to the other, wide open entrance. No overhead there.

From my recent experience, unfortunately, I expect Walmart to discontinue this policy. IMO, some people take advantage of Walmart's hospitality. See the picture below. IMO, this is one of the reasons why Walmart will stop overnight or should I say all day parking.
