The Escapees have a pretty good letter concerning sleeping overnight in parking lots.

Here's the link.

So when you overnight at a truck stop, does it cost anything? Or do you just find a parking spot, climb into your trailer and get some shut-eye?

When we full timed we spent more than a few nights in Flying J lots. Normally we would plan our fuel for the day so we were low near the end of the day. After filling up I would ask the fuel desk staff member if I could park overnight. If the answer was yes I would ask for a reccomendation as to the part of the lot for RV's. This way I did not end up parking in the way of the big trucks.

There were a few truckstops on the side roads in kansas or nebraska that had 4-5 spots with water sewer and electric. They ran 3-5 bucks for the night.

I have also used WalMarts, and some of the non-national truckstops, dixie crossroads? was one where we were all alone out in a big open field for the night.
