I burned up a wheel bearing and limped into a Wallyworld late one evening, went in and asked/informed the manager that I needed to overnight in their lot, no problem. I did not sleep well lets say.

Depending on what route you are taking there are generally rest areas (restrooms) on the interstates and a few on some major highways. There are also parking areas, pullouts etc. specifically for vehicles (usually semis and rvs) to stop and rest. I've not ever seen anyone rousting someone from one of the areas.

There are some places with a City Ordinance against it. Durango, CO comes to mind. It pays to check ahead.

That sounds like Durango.....encourage dopers and winos to overindulge, pass out, puke and sleep all night on main st. then pass an ordinance against rvers from trying to stop to get some rest.....while at the same time those rvers would be spending their hard earned money in their city. Sorry, back to the program.

I've looked at a couple of rest areas along 385 and 87. It would just be a backup plan. I typically have a reservation, but want to just drive this time and call ahead on the way. If I can't find an RV park with availability, then I would use a rest stop.

I use RV parks, this is due to I need power for the CPAP or I dont sleep .

As for Walmarts, most of the ones around here have a "No overnight Camping" sign set up.
