I referenced this website when traveling the east coast. Lots of out of the way places in the middle of no where that were helpful. But most times I just needed a driveway to park in as a stop over and did not want to go too far out of the way because time was short between actual vacation spots and I did not want to pay $40 + for a good nights sleep. Although Walmart is always an option, a driveway stop with no worries of being woken by street sweepers or vagrants would be great. So thanks to all who have offered up a stop.
I commented in the other thread about this that our city (of roughly the same size) just made this illegal last week, enforced by $150/day fines assessed to the property owner. We have no tourist/seasonal problem (...wish we did, the local economy wouldn't suck so bad...), but parking any sort of RV on your property is suddenly highly restricted. Makes no sense, we're faaaaaaaaar from being any sort of highbrow community - quite the opposite - but apparently somebody got a wild hair up their... well... you know.In my town of only 18,000 there are several hundred vans here every day, Spring through Fall, all shapes and sizes, with at least 50 sticking around for the skiing, though most try to get by in Whistler.
Moreover, with high house prices and zero rental vacancy, vans now function as many peoples' full-time housing. It's not seen as unusual here, given the area's mountain/alternative culture.
There's even a local economy around people parking and plugging into residential properties in the evenings - $200/month, that sort of thing. ...
