AFFILIATE LINK DISCLOSURE: Friends, making a quality Loloho video is kind of like making sausage – only slightly more violent. It’s a ridiculous amount of work that typically involves high dollar camera drops, blue-screen-of-death computer crashes, and at least one angry shotgun wielding old man shouting, “Hey! Get the hell outta here!” Once the final video is posted, rewards here on YouTube are few and far between (unless you are a masochist who enjoys being verbally abused by anonymous trolls). One saving grace is our affiliate links. JUST CLICKING THESE LINKS HELPS TO SUPPORT OUR LITTLE SHOW. Think of this clicking as like tipping – except that it doesn’t cost you anything extra! If you eventually make a purchase via one of our affiliate links, we will receive a few pennies (and Sean typically invests these pennies in duct tape and video gear). Again, it doesn’t cost you anything to click these links, and it’s a great help to us. As always, safe travels, happy camping, and THANK YOU!

    I pulled into a rest area in Mississippi and there were signs that said no overnight parking.  I asked the onsite Security if there was a place that I could park and charge up batteries and just rest a bit but not take up spaces that trucks might need.  He showed me where to park and then told me I could stay until the morning and wouldnt’ be bothered.  Kudos and many thanks to the State of Mississippi.

  2. L2theW on February 18, 2020 at 11:59 am

    truckers do not use or like good buddy one way to piss one off  not my rules just saying better to not use it

  3. NELSON X on February 18, 2020 at 12:00 pm

    That guitar sounded shitty.

  4. j j on February 18, 2020 at 12:02 pm

    On and off ramp.I drive a truck. Its rare to find somewhere to park past 7 pm.

  5. KC Culp on February 18, 2020 at 12:03 pm

    Churches are also a decent place to park overnight.

  6. HILLBILLYinHELL on February 18, 2020 at 12:05 pm

    Walmart is starting to not allow overnight parking even for the big rigs. You can ask but they might say no and normally it is not Walmart but the city they are in does not allow it.

  7. Brandon Aguiar on February 18, 2020 at 12:06 pm

    Nice video. 🇺🇸 😊

  8. Colorme Dubious on February 18, 2020 at 12:07 pm

    It might be a bit noisy to sleep in your rig at a rest area but you should try it as a 6’3" man in the driver’s seat of a 2000-ish Honda Civic. Even in the car-only section it gets a bit…interesting. I only cat-napped for 30 minutes or less at a time and no longer do that (too old and have money) but it was certainly "memorable." By the way, was that the Live Oak County safety rest area on I-37? It’s always super-clean.

  9. 0906blue on February 18, 2020 at 12:08 pm

    Wal-Mart, I worked there. They can’t give you permission because of legal liability but they will totally turn their backs on you being their.

  10. Terry MacDonald on February 18, 2020 at 12:09 pm

    Our most frequent problem with casinos is the smoking. And yes they often times have small dedicated areas for non-smokers but sometimes they don’t have doors to them and then you just smell the same amount of smoke as you do anywhere else in the casino. But we do think them for allowing us to Camp there

  11. Edgar . Lamkin on February 18, 2020 at 12:10 pm

    We’re just leaving Indians here in South Dakota let me tell you something you win the big jackpot at an Indian casino man it’s hard to give any of your money back out of that you don’t have to sovereign Nation then tell you to bad but if you want to win go to the buffets

  12. Dan 821 on February 18, 2020 at 12:10 pm

    Great tips! I have stayed at all of the mentioned locations. I generally prefer a Cracker Barrel which I like their breakfast anytime. A truck stop with the designated RV spots is nice and they also usually have a nice restaurant like a Dennys, dump, water, propane are available, and you can freshen up with a nice LONG hot shower! Saves on depending on the resources of the RV.
    I will not stay at a truck stop that doesn’t have the designated RV spots. Truckers need the space!
    Thanks for sharing the tips!

  13. Robin Neil Glasco on February 18, 2020 at 12:11 pm

    Walmart is getting more chincy about it. Casinos are most always good. Rest areas are often 4 hr max parking. I don’t like Cabellas or Cracker Barrel much, just haven’t found them to be very good spots. You missed grave yards. I’ve never done it but I have a friend who did it regularly. City parks are good a lot of times in small towns. City streets are usually good for up to 72 hrs but read the local rules. Truck stops are last resort. COE parks are the best but you have to get there when they are open usually.

  14. Four2Tour on February 18, 2020 at 12:11 pm

    Great list for us to keep in mind as we get traveling more. We love the benefits of the RV community sharing their tips and advice.

  15. Scott Defrese on February 18, 2020 at 12:12 pm

    I use to work for a Denny’s. It was ok to park there over night especially if you came in for some food.

  16. Inyalabudbud Punjabbidaliwad on February 18, 2020 at 12:13 pm

    Walmart?? Oh come on. I haven’t seen one yet that did not have a sign saying “no overnight parking”. 20 years ago it was ok…..now they send employees around to kick you out. Thumbs down….and please don’t torture that guitar anymore.

  17. Learning as were Living on February 18, 2020 at 12:15 pm

    I found your channel by the art of rving parady video. Had to come check out your channel. We do spend many nights in between locations pulling into lots here and there. We usually pull in late and leave in AM. No slide outs so minimum space we take up.

  18. ILBlues on February 18, 2020 at 12:16 pm

    Can you play that Alvarez or is it just a prop?

  19. Dino Vespucci on February 18, 2020 at 12:17 pm

    The Walmart in Sanford Florida no longer allows overnight parking. They let the trucks park there, and the homeless came with drugs and hookers. Homeless living in cars also came, and the place fell apart.

  20. Rhaspun on February 18, 2020 at 12:17 pm

    In California the closer you are to the ocean the tougher it might be to get permission to sit overnight. It seems like everyone wants to act they’re upscale and some of these small cities close to the ocean aren’t close to be an affluent city. Casinos are much easier to sit overnight without any hassle. I always eat inside as an act of appreciation. Not hard to do as many casinos have good restaurants.

  21. Clayton Pope on February 18, 2020 at 12:17 pm

    Truckstops can be noisey the flying j stops have rv lots the truckers aren’t happy to loose the parking spot because we need them due to regulations on our drive time limited

  22. Charles Stephens on February 18, 2020 at 12:17 pm

    Thank you Sean and Christy for your first rate videos. I would like to mention that any RVers traveling through Tehachapi, Calif. be advised that there is a brand new Walmart as of August of 2019. Unfortunately there are signs in the parking lot prohibiting overnight stays……sorry.
    Chuck & Kim,Tehachapi, Ca.

  23. patrick mcdonough on February 18, 2020 at 12:18 pm

    Man of these videos rehash the same ideas.

  24. Joseph on February 18, 2020 at 12:20 pm

    for rest areas I just found this on motorhomes-usa

    "It is important to note that overnight RV parking is prohibited at roadside rest stops in the USA, except in the following states:

    Illinois (only on Illinois Toll Road)
    Indiana (only on Indiana Toll Road)
    New Mexico
    New York (emergencies only)
    Ohio (only on Ohio Turnpike)
    Oregon (14-hour limit)
    In all other states, violators risk receiving a fine if caught."

  25. The Word on February 18, 2020 at 12:21 pm

    Thank you for the Tips.

  26. SiriusGD on February 18, 2020 at 12:22 pm

    Great video guys! Informative and very pleasant.

  27. You Cant HandleTruth on February 18, 2020 at 12:23 pm

    Truckers get mad if RVs park over-
    night at a Truck Stop ????….. LOL !!!
    park in any lot THEY want.. always !!!!!

  28. Andrew Moore on February 18, 2020 at 12:26 pm

    Good stuff. One reason I don’t want to work with a trailer- I’ve been able to make up lost sleep time with a quick cat-nap by just jumping in the back of my rig- on basically, the outside of any random parking lot. Refreshing. I know you get to ‘drop your house off’ and drive around, but man I love just jumping in the back after picking up groceries. 🙂 Best, *A.

  29. Paul Ricelli on February 18, 2020 at 12:28 pm

    😀😀😀MOST FLYING J TRUCK STOPS HAVE RV PARKING AND DUMP STATIONS ⛽⛽⛽ Also a good place to fuel up ⛽⛽⛽

  30. Ed Salinas on February 18, 2020 at 12:28 pm

    Dude, first take that guitar to a music store and get tuned properly.  Lord have mercy!

  31. Ewald Rindlisbacher on February 18, 2020 at 12:28 pm

    Good info except what they discuss about truck stops and rest areas. Truck stops is actually a great place to stay, as long as you don’t take a trucks spot.They are save, have 24 hours restaurants and clean restrooms etc. And rest areas are actually not safe as they posted. Rest areas are an unsafe place to stay.

  32. gp johnson on February 18, 2020 at 12:30 pm

    Love your over head shots.

  33. Rob Edmund on February 18, 2020 at 12:31 pm

    As my brother from San Antonio would say, "HEY! That’s not a gas station. THAT’S a Buc EEs!!" Great place to refill.

  34. SKINNYS COOL VIDEOS on February 18, 2020 at 12:32 pm

    You can sleep at my grandmas place , just call ahead .

  35. Jim Nowak on February 18, 2020 at 12:33 pm

    In the case of parking in a parking lot or a street side, what about popouts?

  36. D S on February 18, 2020 at 12:34 pm

    I’ve stayed overnight in hospital parking lots. They are usually pretty full of vehicles and have vehicles coming and going all hours of the day and night so it is easy to stealth in them, if you are in a van or smaller RV. A larger RV may be doable in a larger hospital’s parking lot if you stay out in the fringe areas of the lot.

  37. MN Patriot on February 18, 2020 at 12:34 pm

    Sold my R-Pod have a 30′ Flagstaff travel trailer now. What do I do I can’t get in my bedroom without putting the big slide out dinette slide out 😬

  38. Mark Harvey on February 18, 2020 at 12:34 pm

    One place to stop out west, especially in rural areas on secondary highways and roads are weigh stations that are closed. Often you’ll have to share them with trucks but many times I have them all to myself. Great video guys, thanks!

  39. mw10259 on February 18, 2020 at 12:35 pm


  40. Tofutaco on February 18, 2020 at 12:37 pm

    Them: "Casinos!"

    Me: *Cries in Utahn*

  41. aartmark on February 18, 2020 at 12:37 pm

    I travel in a van with a bed in it so it’s somewhat easier for me. I’ve parked at truck stops and try to find the most unobtrusive place to park. Often in the parking lot
    under a lighed area. Then in the morning I’ll get breakfast there and fill up with gas. It’s important to respect everybody.
    Also, I stayed at casino in the overflow parking lot. I thought I’d go in and loose ten dollars to pay for my overnight parking but what happened was I played
    a slot for about fourty minutes and left with an extra ten dollars. I tried.
    State camp grounds aren’t free but they’re usually not very expencive and quite often have showers and very nice natural scenery.

  42. Steve Malone on February 18, 2020 at 12:40 pm

    Very good information, I think we have tried them all. Think about Costco in rural areas, as they close early and open late

  43. Will Belden on February 18, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    We had never noticed the little RV in the corner of Cracker Barrel signs! Thanks for that tip!

  44. joseph Rapoza on February 18, 2020 at 12:42 pm

    I like to park where there is a 99.9 chance that I am not going to get killed. Like say a campground.

  45. Tim Hardy on February 18, 2020 at 12:43 pm

    Walmart managers typically won’t "approve" of you parking your RV because they don’t want the liability that comes with approval. They may not say "No," but they often won’t say "Yes."

  46. Albert Von Schultz on February 18, 2020 at 12:46 pm

    I remember when I was younger and traveling with my parents we would stop at Stuckey’s, who remembers them, gas stations which there was the one in Salt Lake City, Sam’s, rest areas and casino parking lots. Fence growing up I’ve done some camping on the back of a motorcycle and now bought a 36-foot fifth wheel and plan on becoming full-time rving 4 orc and or pleasure

  47. Edgar . Lamkin on February 18, 2020 at 12:48 pm

    Why do you want to park by all the homeless they’re drunk there on drugs everything that is a worst spot to park Walmart if any place is dangerous to be at Walmart I go just passed down and whatever find an old parking lot there bandon gas station whatever and that’s where I sleep no noise no truck fumes no drunken idiots and nobody’s going to come in my camper

  48. William Crowley on February 18, 2020 at 12:48 pm

    White noise from your cellphone helps reduce hearing the trucks.

  49. Scuba Steve on February 18, 2020 at 12:49 pm

    Good point: If a place provides you a free place to park overnight, spend some money at the establishment.

  50. Kristen McKenrick on February 18, 2020 at 12:56 pm

    Have you considered hospital parking lots? With permission, of course. The Nachez parkway, which is an outstanding drive, has (or had) actual campgrounds with free camping. Also, please emphasize camping etiquette at your free destinations. No awnings, camping chairs, grills, dumping black water in parking lot, etc.
    And you pet owners–CLEAN UP AFTER THEM!
