    The mall I worked at where there is a Walmart put a stop to RVs after someone dumped their tanks in the parking lot . Remember your behavior can effect others

    As a Walmart Shareholder –It should be Overnight Parking, not Camping–just saying…

    Good video, very informative. Heading across country from North Carolina to California to work in San Jose so Wal marts will come in handy for road weary travelers. Nice how you guys switched back n forth with the pros and cons. Liked and subscribed.

    town centers no more free camping / O get real..Wal-mart makes tons of money..If any thing they should opening up vacant lots near them ..maybe throwing in some gravel and letting more RV,vans,cars,trucks homeless tents stay as long as possible.Let`s be kind to all humans..not just the plp that live in houses and have money..Do not forget lots of wally customers are poor on food stamps . even the wall employees that work there.. The store in town to get your cheap breaking made in china junk The store that put millions of small business out and millions of plp lost retail jobs ..along with manufacturing jobs which wally took to over sea JUNK makers.. Wake up America ..millions of plp are living on wheels and ever town needs large open spaces for Human to park and live in..Hey lets throw out some chemical toilets and dumpers why we are at it… YES the tax payers are going to have to pay for it..quit breeding humans …. Overpopulation has cause thousand of different species to go extinct they will never come back ..thousands of kinds of plants and animals .because Man has push them out..destroy the land they lived in..Man needed the land ,Man populated the air,water and oceans are a mess . Populations of man ,there houses,companies,roads and more have spread out and still are..endanger and already danger..kill out.. So U want to raise and love children ..ADOPT them..Large loving family of adopted children..with EYES open to save this small planet.. In the next 24 hours over 17,000 humans mostly children will die from over population.Ever news paper should have a full page ad. with pictures of beautiful adoptable child from all over the world .and 800 numbers where u can go to adopt. The awareness of overpopulation & solutions can not be ignored .As human have done with climate change =as terrible weather storms and raising oceans – are &will be killing humans in the million

    Strung on the chord between the two fans is a Christian cross. That is nice

  12. Brian on March 8, 2020 at 2:32 pm

    If I have to spend a night at The Walmart parking lot I know I did not live my life right! Lol 😂

  13. Mark DeFelice on March 8, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    Try RV TRUCKY app for finding parking and TRUCKER PATH app for finding truck stops, rest stops, etc

  14. Mom’s Dream on March 8, 2020 at 2:35 pm

    I have to use a c-pap to night so I need to use my generator. I don’t like to but I have no other choice. I try to park away from other people but it seems when I get there and I get parked and set up a bunch of people park around me.

  15. Eugene Courtney on March 8, 2020 at 2:38 pm

    They have cardboard carrying slackers who can get aggressive. Quite a few are crackheads.

  16. Dennis Adkins on March 8, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    you guys keep calling the managers and you guys are going to ass yourself out of Walmart they’re going to stop letting you come in and Park for the night that’s stupid call the manager. I would not call them for no reason.the manager will start calling corporate and corporate will put a stop to let you guys come in

  17. Andrew Defilippis on March 8, 2020 at 2:41 pm

    allstays app which one??? there was a bunch

  18. MeesterVegas on March 8, 2020 at 2:42 pm

    What’s great about camping at Wal-Mart is getting shit faced, playing loud music, and having naked shopping cart races up and down the parking lot. I also like the fact that, when the urge hits me, I can take a big squadooch next to the nice trees they have growing around there. Nothing like getting out in nature. If I’m staying for more than a week, I like to dig my own water well just outside the boundaries of the parking lot. This gives me free, fresh water that I don’t have to pay for inside their shitty store. After all that, I usually find a K-mart so I can buy me sum cheese puffs and generic orange soda.

  19. Michael Martinez on March 8, 2020 at 2:43 pm

    I would enjoy subscribing to and RV Vlogger. But you aren’t showing any RVing experiences. You fill up your video with so so stories and tips. Just show best scenery and shut up for awhile.

  20. David Benjamin on March 8, 2020 at 2:44 pm

    Way less Dude…WAY MORE GIRL!!!

  21. c k on March 8, 2020 at 2:44 pm

    Says to be good guests and practice good etiquette… Quickly followed by explaining how they ignored the signs that were everywhere…

  22. Ben Cooper on March 8, 2020 at 2:44 pm

    ignoring signs? To me, that is a part of etiquette.

  23. Adam Guymon on March 8, 2020 at 2:45 pm

    15:57 One other form of edict is to make shore that your RV doesn’t block any ADA Areas and not just parking stalls but pathway’s like sidewalks, curb cuts etc. Nice video. Do you have a home or do you live in your RV 100% of the time and you just sold your home and don’t have an actual physical address?

  24. James Raymond CreativePhotography on March 8, 2020 at 2:46 pm

    As I traveled from Massachusetts to Memphis Tennessee. To buy sell, rehab investment property, I pulled a 8 foot long x 5.5 feet wide, utility trailer converted to mini sleeper box ! TV, hear, air, am, fm, DVD, clean, professional, I was turned down at 5 Wal-Mart’s, 1 in Connecticut, 1 in Pa. 2 in Ohio 1 in Tennessee. Until I finally got to State camp ground, 0r KOA on my way back I stayed at Private & state camp grounds. Money wasn’t any problem , so Wal-Mart is not one of my go to places.

  25. Kalamazoo 1975 on March 8, 2020 at 2:48 pm

    I have read a lot of these comments and I must say the Walmart in Carson City Nevada is very nice. I was there for a temporary assignment, 3 months, and all of the month to month places were full so I had to camp in my car at the far end of the Walmart parking lot. Every night there were at least 10 RVs and 4 cars. Everyone was quite and very respectful. Best scenery ever. Mountains on all 4 directions.

  26. bill whatman on March 8, 2020 at 2:48 pm

    Walmart ought to charge for camping

  27. Wayne Novotny on March 8, 2020 at 2:55 pm

    Not ALL Walmarts allow overnight camping.

  28. Amjad Hussain on March 8, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    Cheap poor campers

  29. Jaron Klock on March 8, 2020 at 2:59 pm

    The walmart was the cottonwood walmart know it well

  30. isaac oliva on March 8, 2020 at 3:00 pm

    Which all stays app do you use great v-logs

  31. truth hurts on March 8, 2020 at 3:01 pm

    Not camping no jacks down no slidouts open! These people are part of the problem. Good Sam has the rules for Walmart overnight parking. Check it out !

  32. Geocacher NY on March 8, 2020 at 3:03 pm

    Looks like you’re mostly Mountain & Pacific. Seems like more RVers in WMTs out there than I ever run into in the Eastern time zone

  33. TFlorida1 on March 8, 2020 at 3:04 pm

    Walmart camping….who the hell wants to do that. You buy an RV to see the country and you park overnight in a Walmart….weird. And then you mention hoping to park overnight in another Walmart. Too strange.

  34. Julia Dawnyel on March 8, 2020 at 3:04 pm

    You can see this is out of control

  35. Amjad Hussain on March 8, 2020 at 3:04 pm

    I am calling walmart head quarters about people camping at walmart.

  36. don kaufman on March 8, 2020 at 3:04 pm

    I have always been told Jack’s no awnings no lawn chairs no slide outs no BBQs no it’s not a campground but like I said that’s what I was told

  37. JunJun3 JJ on March 8, 2020 at 3:05 pm

    I preferred watching your videos next time without your sunglasses if you won’t mind…

  38. Brad Tallman on March 8, 2020 at 3:05 pm

    Nicely done video, and thanks!… BUT… having been a video writer/producer/director for everyone from Disney, to the US Navy, to KOA, let me plead with you that this was WAY too Long. Try to split videos like this into 4-6 minutes, and carry on with a new chapter right after. Just my 2 cents. This was fun, and people WILL come back for the rest, I promise.

  39. Amjad Hussain on March 8, 2020 at 3:07 pm

    Can not afford a room shame go home

  40. Amjad Hussain on March 8, 2020 at 3:10 pm

    Once I ran out of money needed to stay in a hotel sold my watch for $600 and rented the room.

  41. gordon bradley on March 8, 2020 at 3:10 pm

    Love you two!!! Thank you so much for the info. I just bought my first RV. and I have no clue what I’m doing. I pick it up when the stabilizers are installed. Thanks again, Gordon & Sue

  42. Rose Lane Mable on March 8, 2020 at 3:10 pm

    Great Walmart camping tips, thanks.

  43. Amjad Hussain on March 8, 2020 at 3:11 pm

    If illegal yo park dont park anywhere pay for it if poor go home and work.

  44. Dust storm C0Ming on March 8, 2020 at 3:13 pm

    Coloradas homeless live in their cars at Wal-Mart’s. One guy keeps his coffee cup so he can get a free refill each day another sleeps under a tarp next to his buddies van. Not surprised you rated a Colorado store as 1 of the worst.

  45. Rob Wastman on March 8, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    Our first stop on any road trip is Wal-mart. We always need something and knowing it’s your first stop it takes a lot of pressure off when you,re starting out.

  46. Geocacher NY on March 8, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    Seems the entire north part of Mass, east to east, no longer allows ON as of last July. Mid or southern that I stopped at were very welcoming though

  47. c k on March 8, 2020 at 3:15 pm

    My fav part is the sense of entitlement that you have. You keep trying to hide it.. But in the end your are a homeless weirdo staying on private property and expecting benefits. When you don’t get them you complain . Wish Walmart would shut this down and force you homeless freaks to get back to reality.

  48. RV'n in North Carolina on March 8, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    Unfortunately, with the popularity of RV’s growing, you are going to see less and less overnight parking being allowed by municipalities and retail establishments. My guess it is an issue of liability as well as use of parking space…an of course the few RV enthusiasts who overstep their welcome.

    It is meant to be an overnight stay for relief for drivers a rest stop. Slides are a bit of an option here because in some rigs, putting the slide in denies access to bathrooms or bedrooms etc, generators are a little bit of a gray area in that in the summertime almost requires AC say in the Southeast (Florida summertime…80’s at night and 100% humidity…not sleeping!). I think putting down stabilizers and deploying awnings is a no-no….wrong message. Grilling outside…nope. I also think that staying hooked to the rig (unless you have to drop it to get service on the tow vehicle for instance) is also a good idea in my opinion but that is a discussion point…do you have the room to stay hooked, etc. Staying hooked states, "temporary stop", I am moving on as soon as I am "recharged".

    Again the intention is this is supposed to be an "RV Rest stop" and not a campsite. Many Youtube channels show this, but in most cases it is a pull up, shut off the engine, fix a meal and go to sleep…get up the next morning…quick coffee/b-fast and hit the road.

    As far as ignoring signs…really? I get why you think it was okay, but you are suggesting to the 281K or people that viewed this video that ignoring the signs is optional. Not responsible on your part. Nothing stops a cop from showing up, ticketing everyone there and telling all of you to get the hell out. Kind of like ignoring a no trespassing sign because other people ignore it. All that means is that all of you are culpable in breaking the law 🙂

    As far as breaking down and having to sit until you get repairs…that is unfortunate and I am sure if you worked it out with Walmart to hang they likely would understand. I think that is reasonable.

    Where do you find the reviews for Walmart camping?

  50. Kamper Dave on March 8, 2020 at 3:19 pm

    It’s a privilege extended by Walmart not a right. From what we’ve seen it’s surprising they allow us.
