RV Stops

RVing is hitting another activity spike as the holidays begin to run faster in our direction. While some of us are lucky enough to live close to loved ones, many have to drive long distances to have quality bonding time. Part of preparation for an upcoming lengthy trip is to know the most RV friendly locations to take time to stretch or even pull an all-nighter. Here are few stop tips to keep in mind.


With about 14,000 of these traveler-welcoming locations across the US, the chances are high that there will be one on your route. Keep a lookout for info signs as you come up on exits. They will often be labeled campground or RV park on the lodging signs. The fee to stay at one of these parks is typically around $40 a night but you might even find a free one to hook up to.

Rest Stop

Similar to RVers, truck drivers spend much of their time on the road trying to get somewhere. In recent years, more and more rest stop areas have sprouted up along major highways to provide comforts of home for the constant traveler. Often times these locations have a full service restaurant, gas pumps, private showers, laundry facilities, and even game rooms to unwind in before departure. This is a great resource for RVers because not only do you have these amenities but also it’s perfectly acceptable to camp out overnight for some sleep.

Parking Lot

Sometimes, the previous two spots are unavailable or too few and far between. Holding out on stopping for sleep or fuel can be bad news, so what are you to do? Well, an option that is never in short supply is a shopping center parking lot. Many stores such as Wal-Mart allow your Oklahoma City RV to sit out overnight on their property. It’s pretty convenient because most of these stores are open 24/7, which means you can stop whenever you need to and get supplies as well as some Zzzs.

Do you use these options for the long ride ahead? Feel free to share your favorite places to stop your motorhome in the comments!
