Overnight parking in the Thor Axis/Vegas 25.2 or 25.3

Hello from Lubbock, Texas

We are seriously looking at the Vegas 25.2 or 25.3 and was concerned about Walmart overnight resting. I understand you are not suppose to extend ur slide while overnight sleeping. How do you make this work if you have tried the Walmart experience?

Thanks for your help and guidance

Dino & Angie Carroll

Never had a complaint about slide extending at Walmart as long as you are out of the way in their more or less designated RV area. If you extend the awning, break out the chairs and grill, that may get some attention.

I always ask the Walmart manager for permission and they always give it as long as I do not extend a slide. Some may have areas at the edge of the parking lot where the slide will go beyond the curb and out of the way. You may look for that location hiding the extension and making it safe for drivers who may not be RV'ers. Do non RV'ers go to Walmart too?

We've stayed at many WMs over the last few years, and have always put out the bedroom slide. We always ask the manager, and have never been told we couldn't put out the slide. (Including some in Indiana.) The 25.2 has a rear slide, which shouldn't be a concern for passing drivers.

The manager on duty always sends us to the edge of the parking lot, which is where we want to be anyway. And it's good for them, since we always need groceries and supplies.

For years, we relied on a website Overnight RV Parking ($25 annual subscription) to find places that allow, and avoid those that don't. Now, we use an ap, RVParky to do the same thing, although it's not as comprehensive as the website. They will show you other places that allow, like our personal favorite, Cracker Barrel.

Actually, we prefer a Cracker Barrel for overnight, if the location allows. We always ask the manager if we can overnight, then eat there at least once. If they ap says overnighting is allowed, we've never been refused.

Normally quieter and we feel safer. They always have a great gift shop and audio CD's are reasonable.
