I have been reading with interest on the stopping overnight at WalMart, and think it's a bummer that people are ruining it for all. On our trip home this past week, we actually stopped at a T A (I think that's the name of it). It was a HUGE trucking Travel Center. They actually had slots for RVs to park and huge trucks to park. The slots were around to the side and the back, so we just filled our gas tank up, and then pulled into one of these slots and slept. (Arrived at 1030 pm and pulled out at 5 am). I don't know if anyone else has done this, but it was very nice! (Also, now that I post this, I am not sure if it was "legal" or not--LOL! )
Introduction--We bought our very first motorhome (1987 Class A) in October and we have already posted 5 different reviews for 5 different sites! We quickly became addicted to camping! Reasons for buying: My boys are 10, 9 and it won't be too much longer before Mom/Dad aren't "cool" enough to hang out with, so we wanted to get as much family time in as as possible. Also, we are military and after my husband has deployed for 3 different tours in Iraq and more to come, the family time was (again) number one on our list!!!! Plus, if there are any other military out there--my biggest stress about the military (aside from year long deployments!) is they move us and we have no home! We have to either wait on housing or find a place--NOW I have my own home to stay in until housing opens up for us!
We just traded our 1987 Class A in for a 2006 Class C and I am excited about the more sleeping space, so we will see....
Anyway, that's a little about me--thank you for this site! I am on it FIRST thing when we decide to travel and FIRST thing when we get home! I am open to all the wisdom that you all have to offer a newbie!
