Welcome back to TVC Live! The late night show created just for RVers to help them get the best tips and have the most fun out there on the road.
Here’s Episode 6, where Liz interviews Phil and Stacy of You, Me, and the RV. They give all their tips for parking at Walmart overnight and share a glimpse into the future of Walmart and what that means for you, the RVer.
We also play a game at the end of the RV Newlywed Game since these two are in their first year of full-time life!
Don’t feel like watching and just want the info?
Here are their top Walmart overnight parking tips and why you should try wallydocking!
Early or late grocery shopping.
This is a huge perk of Walmart overnight parking. If you arrive late and aren’t too tired, you can go in and get all your grocery shopping done without the crowd and long lines.
On the other hand, you can quickly get to bed and wake up early to beat the mid-morning rush into the store.
So many Walmarts, so many lots to try out.
Need we say more? This is an easy option for you if you’re just passing through town and want a quick place to sleep for a night. After all, there are a TON of Walmarts in North America so it makes overnighting there a no brainer.
Of course, not every Walmart will allow overnight stays. Click here to check out a comprehensive list of all the Walmarts where overnight parking is a no-no.
And remember, it’s not Walmart telling you to not park overnight in their lot. It is a city ordinance, so please abide if the Walmart asks you not to park.
Follow best practices to get the most out of your Walmart overnight parking stay.
There aren’t any real rules, but there is definitely etiquette.
- Park in the back, out of the way
- Make yourself as unseen as possible
- Give back to Walmart (buy something from the store!)
- Don’t put out your awnings and lawn furniture
- Talk to the store manager to ensure you can stay (or call ahead of time to make sure!)
