FYI. Noticed on recent trip thru AZ that if a Walmart is NOT 24x7 they are much less likely to allow overnite parking.
Also noted management in Kingman AZ not concerned regardless of city ordinance. We counted at least a dozen rigs parked!

Just about every light post in the Cottonwood Walmart parking lot, has a sign posted about camping prohibited due to city ordinance now.

After watching that video, I am not sure I would even drive through Cottonwood.

I took my carry school in AZ. The instructor told us someone had shot someone in the Walmart at Kingman when they check the security video there over a hundred people that pull thief gun when the shots rang out about twenty people in the class my wife and I was the only ones that didn't have a gun on us.

I didn't read every page of this post, but THIS website has been our friend for a long time, and yes, I pay them a small fee for the yearly subscribe, but it's been very worth it.

Overnight RV Parking

Walmarts will be listed, and recent greens and reds as to whether or not people have been able to park there or not, plus tons of other, user submitted free overnight spots.

We find restaurants that allow parking, turn off's, back roads, walmarts, all sorts of place for an overnighter.

Enough money under the table and businesses get breaks passed by politicians to the determinant of consumers.

Recent local electrical rate increase is a case in point. The large majority of elderly customers in the Phoenix area are living on fixed income with very modest if any increase every year. They raised rates about 5%. So at some point a decision has to be made - meds or lights?

Corporate greed is accelerating rapidly.

Airstream raised prices 5.5% this year for the 2016 models. The list of "improvements" and included new items that were options last year would not make a cost increase of much over $500 versus the over $4,400 increase on a $80,000 trailer.

Another example is the over $27,000 price increase between 2014 and 2015 for the Classic model 30.

Oh well....

I had read that a lot of cities and counties are banning over night parking. Two problems, the hobo boondockers who just live all over like slobs in their RV's and cities wanting more money.

I had read before we left Florida how Tampa and Clearwater where cracking down on homeless who where taking advantage of over night parking, pretty much setting up residence in their van or whatever and never leaving, and ruining it for tourist. And basically ruining it for every other decent RVer who ever wanted to overnight someplace that didn't charge money.

Walmart parking

Go on the Walmart site and they show you the locations of stores that allow and DONOT allow RV parking overnight.

Found this on walmart.com faq page.

Can I park my RV at a Walmart store?

While we do not offer electrical service or accommodations typically necessary for RV customers, Walmart values RV travelers and considers them among our best customers. Consequently, we do permit RV parking on our store parking lots as we are able. Permission to park is extended by individual store managers, based on availability of parking space and local laws. Please contact management in each store to ensure accommodations before parking your RV.

We do it ALL THE TIME. Make sure you go in and buy something so that if someone asks you have a receipt. Others will tell you to ask for permission. We never do because that just gives them the option to say no. I have heard that SOME walmarts have signs that prohibit overnight parking, but I have never seen one and we are on the road ALL the time. NEVER once were we asked to leave. In fact walmart just expanded their selection of RV accessories.

Hi, almost all of the Wal-Marts that we stopped at don't allow overnight parking. The one that we did stay at, cost us $80.00 so we didn't save anything there.
