HOW TO MAKE CAMPING AT WALMART SURPRISINGLY COMFORTABLE
The main tips from the article are:
TIPS FOR A GOOD EXPERIENCE OVERNIGHTING AT WALMART
- Don’t park close to the store’s door; typically that’s where all the customers who aren’t staying the night want to park.
- Check out the traffic pattern in the lot; there’s usually a place where most people drive in or around. Park away from this area for a better night’s sleep.
- Park far away from any tractor-trailers as they often idle their engine all night to power their own units. Park near the other RVers, but not too close.
- Choose RV parking near a street light; use blackout curtains or a sleeping mask if the light bothers you.
- The store’s Garden Center is typically a good place to park, unless it is near the loading dock. In that case, avoid it. Walmart trucks arrive at all hours of the day/night.
- Lock everything up and don’t leave anything of value in sight that might tempt a break-in.
- If you have generator, don’t run it after 9pm. Consider not running it all and go solar! Even Walmart has been working toward using renewable energy over the past decade.
- Don’t stay for more than a couple nights, and never leave your trailer there unless you’ve gotten approval from the manager.
- Go in and buy something; if you’re going to use the bathroom, grab a bag of ice, do a propane tank exchange, an avocado…something.
