Floyd has nailed the proper etiquette for parking (please, it's not camping) at Walmart or similar host. I might add do not unhitch unless it's specifically allowed. If you don't unhitch you probably don't need stabilizers or levelers. And, with our small rigs, no more than two parking spaces. Be as unobtrusive as possible; make it look like you just pulled in to shop.

I've noticed that the only WalMarts where the overnight camping isn't allowed are locations that are close to commercial campgrounds where those owners either complained of unfair competition (hard to beat free) or filed suit.
