I ran across an interesting article about a luxury motorhome containing $40,000 in cash that was towed from a Wal-Mart.
It dredges up the continuing controversy between private campground owners and Wal-Mart offering overnight parking to some of their best customers whom are RVers. The Wal-Mart spokesperson, Kayla Whaling, interviewed for the article does a good job stating, “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 lots as we are able,” She than states standard Wal-Mart policy concerning RV parking. “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.” The article serves a good reminder to make sure you have permission to stay the night regardless of where you decide to park for the evening.
Having my rig towed is one adventure in RVing I don’t wish to experience.
