Hope they do away with all extended RV parking. The Walmart near me attracts the RV's that appear to be junkers, the kind you see in homeless camps. Have yet to see anything less than 20 years old. Eyesores.

Maybe they should call the new setup something really unique and new. How about calling them "Strip malls"??? [emoticon]

Maybe the new layout will look something like this one in Amsterdam, NY:

This does not bode well for overnighters. Both of our Walmarts have added Fuel Stations and one has even added an EV Charging station. Furthermore, with the addition of reserved parking stations for merchandise pickup, once-abundant parking is becoming a thing of the past, and increased congestion appears to be the norm anymore. Walmart will simply abandon it's generous policy of allowing overnight parking in order to accommodate more revenue-generating tenants. One can hardly blame them. What a sad turn of events.

Our Walmart turned into a homeless RV park a couple of years ago... They FINALLY had to post the no overnight parking signs and at least got them out of the parking lot..

Now, they just park on the street, but at least they have to move eventually...

When enforced..

^What seems even more strange is in Eastgate in Bellevue, there are homeless RVs parking for extended periods. I mean real deal, don't know how they made it that far from Seattle without braking down or falling apart. There's one at the Safeway for the last couple weeks that has one side literally with a hole burned through it and plywood over the hole!

I can think of only one time I seen a dilapidated rv at Wallyworld. Most are new motorcoach's or 5th wheels with a few (C's) and TT's thrown in. Most on there way to Texas or coming from Texas (snowbirds). They have a separate lot that fills up with RV'S and a random semi (most semi's use the new Loves truck stop). I remember the dilapidated trailer sat there for a month or two before moving on. I don't know if he left on his own or was asked to leave.

Forgot to add the far North lot is close to all the fast food restaurant's and is fairly quiet.
