I just returned from a 4 day camping trip in Ohio with no problems. Had a great time if you take out the two tires I had to put on my trailer at 10:00 pm on Saturday night in a Walmart Parking lot.

I'm doing mine up with a lift in it for accessibility for my friend and when I get done I don't expect any problems anywhere I go. If they do give me problems I'll either move along or sweet talk them with the "How many rv's do you see with a wheelchair lift in it? This was the best option for us"


By the way I am knocking on wood too. And if I have to I'll use DAD campgrounds since they are good with all rv's. Or at least until you wake up to church bells and see people going into a church. Or the owners of the parking lot want their lot back.

heh, if im in a city, I just park on the street. Ive been living in vehicals for two years now. Had a van before, and upgraded to the School bus.

I also have been known to park in 24hour coffeeshop parking for days on end.

The best thing to do is stay outa suburbia, everyones an uptight ass there, so I dont even bother parking in suburbia.

Big cities, you just gotta find the slightly seedier side of town. (dont park in the absolut seediest though).

Walmart parking lots are fine, but I dispise walmart so dont usually park there unless its a last resort.

Number one place to park for me is 24hour coffeeshops, with unusual crowds of people. It was common knowledge I lived in the parkinglot, nob ody minded at all. I think the late late shift liked me cuz they knew they werent completely alone.

When I was younger we would take those family trips in our grandparnets class c rv. And my dad would park it in what ever parking lot he could find after driving late in to the night. Most often it would be bussiness lots, churches, and mall lots. I remember only once where a cop had come up and told us to leave but I think he gave us a couple hours to do so.

He would try to find lots that had the lights in the lot off so we didn't have the light in our faces in the night.

I see.... Seedy side of town parking lots, Walmart as the last resort, coffee shops good too....

Now, how about anyone not being allowed into a regular privately owned RV Campground or state run campground because they don't allow skoolies as a policy?

State campgrounds don't care in my neck of the woods. If it has RV plates, it's an RV. As for private sites, I think their only concern is with wiring and plumbing because it wasn't done by a professional. However, my wiring was done by a group of guys with pretty decent skills. The buddy that did all the 120 wiring (I did the 12v) has two years of schooling under his belt in the field. Basically, all it takes is for the owner to take a good look at things. At worst I've had them plug a tester into all the oulets to test for proper grounding, but he said they did this with stick and staple RV's as well and interestingly enough...they had a higher failure rate than the homebuilt a remodeled units he has seen.
