Above the motor coach of Roger N Chartier formerly the motorhome of Gerald R. Audette.
I, Roger lived for 2 months in a 27 foot motor home and loved it. So I write from experience here.
There are pros and cons to living in a motor home. If you have school age kids, it can be more of a problem.
I met a Canadian couple and their two daughters who traveled the whole USA.
The girls were home schooled (motor home schooled). They were both remarkable and bright little girls.
If you are single or an adult couple it is easier.
Where to park?
Staying around your local home turf.
Some folks park right in the yard of a family member or a friend or on business property belonging to an acquaintance etc. You have to get creative.
The folks that have it easiest for parking are the smaller motor homes that can fit into a regular parking space or are not so obviously camping out. The bigger the motor home, the more difficult to park on the street somewhere.
Traveling: Avoid out of the way rest stops or places where you are alone at night.
Some Walmarts welcome motor homes for an overnight. Call ahead or check with the greeter inside.
Review this list before you bother to drive there www.allstays.com/c/walmart-locations-noparking.htm
The problems are that people have abused the lots and that the local ordinances prohibit overnight camping in lots. Reports are that Florida's Walmarts are getting tougher, and many are on the no overnight list.
If they let you, you will have to park in the designated area.
