A quick google search doesn't reveal anything. Do you have a source or link for this rumor?

I've heard it every couple of years. It was really rampant when some stores put up the barricades to keep semi's from driving thru the main front lots.

Our local Walmart just banned RVs. One buttwipe ruined it. Parked his falling apart DP (plywood basement storage door and delaminating side) in the middle of the lot, partially blocking one of the lanes. It was there for weeks. Before that, it was at the closed Sam's club lot for weeks. Maybe if he parked it in the corner no one uses, it wouldn't have caused as big of an issue.

If you an afford your RV rig you can afford to overnite in a Campground. If the install full hook ups I'll consider them

Here in Edmonton, AB. I have heard of this(rumour?)but RV's are still parking in Wally's lot.

It would be convient if one had driven for quite sometime with no near by CG sites.

Poor planning tho

That's condescending and actually not the point, so double fail for you

When driving a 30 hour trip, it's hard to find a campground willing to let you in past 9:00 PM. They can also be far off the road you are travelling.

I love Wallys hospitality. I make sure to ask permission and shop, in return I get a well lit parking lot with great security.

x2, .... haven't over night parked at WM, YET, but would, .... we have and do overnight at welcome centers and rest stops, because of convenience,.... we can drive until tired,..... till midnight or longer, we don't have to locate a cg in an area that we know nothing about, plus many cg close gates at dark,.... its all about being convenient, we're not there to camp, just sleep until the next morning, then continue our trip...... makes sense to me
