A recreational vehicle was reported stolen from a Sterling residence Monday after it was reportedly involved in a reckless driving incident the day before, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded to the 46000 block of McClellan Way in Sterling around 1:19 a.m. Sunday for a report of a reckless driver involving an RV, which was reportedly smoking as it drove through the area.

Authorities located the RV unoccupied and on fire once they arrived, after which members of the Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office responded to the scene.

They told the LCSO the fire likely originated from the vehicle’s rear brakes.

On Monday, the vehicle’s owner — who authorities say was out of the area at the time — reported the RV missing from the area of the unit block of Edds Lane.

The case remains under LCSO investigation.

COVID-inspired RV sales soaring on West Shore and beyond – Peninsula News Review

Zion National Park Vacation Rentals, Hotels & More Lodging Options

Spring and summer have produced a bumper crop for sales of recreational vehicles during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Craig Little, owner of Arbutus RV & Marine Sales, says sales have increased 25 to 40 per cent compared to last year.

“We set a record in February, and March was right up there as well,” says Little, who co-owns five locations on Vancouver Island with his wife, Rose. “There was a drop in April, but it picked up again in May and we’re having our best June in 32 years. There’s a significant increase in first-time buyers who haven’t experienced the lifestyle before.”

Cross-border and international travel restrictions resulting from COVID have more people opting for holidays on the Island, he adds.

“It’s created a perfect storm. There’s more of an appetite to stay close to home and the Island has proven to be a safe place to travel. We have the climate, the scenery, the beaches, lakes and amenities.”

The fact RVs are self-contained and conducive to social distancing is part of the appeal, he notes.

“Another factor is that interest rates are so low, which makes it even more affordable. There’s a range of makes and models to fit everyone’s budget. When you consider that gas prices are lower, it’s created a perfect storm. Despite the record sales we’ve been able to gear up our inventory and offer a great selection. I’m also hearing that there’s a lot of great full-service private campsites available on the Island.

“It’s a great option if you can’t reserve a spot at one of our great provincial sites,” Little says.

Toma Lekhno, sales manager of Galaxy RV in Langford, wasn’t expecting the boom in sales to happen after COVID first hit in February.

“It’s a real pleasant surprise,” he says. “It started to pick up in April and has been increasing month by month into May and June. We’ve had to hire new staff, technicians and service people to accommodate the crazy volume.”

Although keeping up with the demand created challenges in terms of inventory, efforts to connect with new sources have worked out well, he adds. “We have a lot of stock on order and new trailers are coming in every day to keep up with the demand.”

The timing of the opening of Galaxy’s new building, set for within the next couple of weeks, couldn’t be better, Lekhno says.

“We’ll have a huge service department and a lot more space to accommodate our needs and our clients’ needs.”

Accused batterer gets black eye from witness

Brian Mark Milton

A North Florida man received a black eye from a witness who reportedly stopped him from beating up a woman outside an RV.

Brian Mark Milton, 34, of Maccleny, was charged with domestic battery after the incident, which happened recently. The incident location was redacted from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office report.

A sheriff’s deputy found Milton being held down by two male witnesses and placed him in the back of the patrol vehicle. The witness who reported the incident said he saw the victim outside her RV when Milton came out of it and swung at her with a closed fist. He said Milton and the victim went back inside the RV and he heard multiple “bangs” that sounded as if someone was hitting the walls, according to the report.

The witness said the victim ran out of the RV saying, “He just hit me.” He said Milton was chasing the victim and he intervened, punching him in the face and holding him on the ground. The witness said he was afraid Milton was going to harm the victim if he did not intervene, the report said.

The second witness told the deputy he heard the victim scream when she ran out of the trailer. He said he saw Milton chasing the victim when the first witness intervened. He said he helped the first witness hold Milton down until the deputy’s arrival, according to the report.

The victim told the deputy she was outside the RV when Milton came out with a balled fist and approached her yelling. She said she doesn’t know why Milton was acting that way, but he might have been made because she was texting somebody else earlier, the report said.

The victim said she and Milton went back into the RV and were in a verbal argument when he punched her in the neck. She said she ra out of the RV to the first witness’s RV and does not recall what happened afterwards, according to the report.

The deputy observed redness on the right side of the victim’s neck, which corresponded with her story. The victim also had a mark on her left eye that appeared to be older. She said it was from two weeks ago and Milton had done it to her. The victim said Milton has battered her in the past and she has neglected to report it to law enforcement, the report said.

After being read his Miranda warning, Milton said he was having a verbal argument with the victim. He said he came out of the RV and wanted her back inside because the way she was acting was “embarrassing.” Milton said once they were back inside, they started to argue and she decided to run out of the house and scream he had hit her, according to the report.

Milton said he did not hit the victim and she freaked out for no reason. He said he ran after her and got hit really hard, and he doesn’t remember much after that. Milton said he didn’t want to pursue criminal charges against the witness for battery, the report said.

Milton was released from the Marion County Jail on $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Marion County Court on Sept. 8.

The joys of Alaskan travel | Local Sports News

Rent An RV Today - Exclusive Discounts

Zion National Park Vacation Rentals, Hotels & More Lodging Options

By Outdoors by Howard Delo

This year is unlike any we have seen in our lifetimes. The pandemic is affecting everything. Travel is a major problem, and that includes getting to go on that “once-in-a- lifetime” vacation. Since travel is problematic, many folks are opting for a “staycation” at home or within their local area or home state.

My wife and I generally don’t take vacations as such. If there’s someplace we want to go and the pieces all fall into place, we’ll go. However, this year, because of the pandemic, problems with travel, the fact that we are both older (I hope my wife doesn’t read this!), and my background health issues, we haven’t even discussed going anywhere on a vacation.

However, as we thought about things, we decided that if we stayed in-state and used our small RV to cut costs and minimize social contacts, we could still see Alaska. My wife was born and raised here but had never been further north than Byers Lake. We decided to take a quick trip to Denali National Park, figuring it wouldn’t be crowded. It wasn’t!

You know how some vacations go so well that you’ll remember that trip for the rest of your life. Then there’s the “normal” vacation where everything goes reasonably well, but nothing earth shattering happens. And that leaves the vacation from hell, where nothing goes right. This trip north was closer to the later than the first. It wasn’t a terrible trip, but things didn’t go well.

We left Sunday afternoon and the drive went about how I expected. We made the trip in a little over four hours in partly sunny weather. When I drove over the bridge at Hurricane Gulch, I only got a quick glance down, but my wife was quite impressed with the view into the gulch.

Of course, we ran into road construction, about 20 miles worth. The gulch bridge marked the end going north or the beginning going south. On the drive up on Sunday, there was no work happening, so other than the numerous pavement break, driving wasn’t too bad. Coming south on Tuesday, we ran into long delays and two different “follow-the-pilot-car” runs longer than either of us had ever experienced.

Sunday evening, we went to refuel the RV with gas I carried in a small trailer we towed behind the RV. I had installed a 12-volt DC pump system in the trailer to make refueling easier. It had worked fine for several years. Now, of course, it didn’t work, and we ended up hand-pouring gas into the RV, one five-gallon can at a time after filling the can from our fifteen-gallon storage cans.

Oh, did I mention the rain? It started Sunday evening and went none-stop through Tuesday morning when we left for home. I’m not a big fan of trying to see the sights through a sheet of rain and low-hanging clouds. My wife really wanted to see Denali, but the weather ended that hope.

We hung out in the RV all day Monday, reading and napping. I was watching for a possible break in the rain, but no such luck. Monday evening, when we were taking the three little dogs out for a walk, my wife slipped on the rain-slickened metal stairs while coming out of the RV, twisting her left ankle and cutting her right knee and left hand when she fell in the gravel. We got the cuts disinfected and bandaged and she lived with the swollen ankle.

With seeing Denali off the table, my next suggestion was to visit the Denali National Park Visitors Center for a little history and then drive out to Savage River Tuesday morning before we were planning to leave. I visited there on a backpacking trip in 1972 but hadn’t been back since. My wife had never been there.

We drove over to the visitor’s center Tuesday morning. Two National Parks rangers were manning the table in front of the entrance, handing out maps and trail guides. I already had the map and I wasn’t planning to hike in the rain. The ranger said the center was closed because of the pandemic. After telling me that, she mentioned that the Savage River campground was closed because of bears. She then wished me a good day and told me to enjoy the park.

I thought that comment was “classic” and a fitting end to our otherwise failed visit. We fired up the RV and headed south for home. Maybe the next trip will go better.

Alarming trend: RV Unfriendly Walmart Parking

Rent An RV Today - Exclusive Discounts

Zion National Park Vacation Rentals, Hotels & More Lodging Options

You most likely know that Walmart is an international company with hundreds of stores across the United States.  But you may not know the history and ties between Walmart and the RVing community. 

As an RV enthusiast, you may not be aware of an alarming trend:  RV unfriendly Walmart parking lots.

Across the country in recent days, the media has been running stories like this one from CNN about RV parking not being allowed at some Walmart stores. Actually, it’s an old story. But the number of RV unfriendly Walmart parking lots has noticeably been picking up in recent months to the point that it now appears to be a trend.

Ten years ago about 78% of Walmart stores allowed overnight RV parking. Now, it’s close to 58%.

To understand why there are more RV unfriendly Walmart parking lots these days, we need to go back in time and take a look at the history between Walmart and the RV community.

Sam Walton Loved to RV

Walmart founder Sam Walton opened his first store on July 2, 1962, in Arkansas.  It only took the entrepreneur a decade to turn his idea into a national chain.  Walton built his dream on the cornerstone principle of extreme customer service.   Sam Walton was also an RV enthusiast. 

And he opened his parking lots to free overnight sites shortly after opening his first handful of stores.  Walton felt that RVers made great customers.  After parking, most came into the store to purchase supplies.  It was a win-win arrangement. 

RVers still carry the tradition of parking overnight in a Walmart lot.  The culture is the subject of blogs, podcasts, documentaries, and even a beloved Facebook Group.  

What changed?  What started the alarming trend of RV unfriendly Walmart parking lots?

RV unfriendly Walmart parking lots – Local Ordinances and Rules

Over the past two decades,  many local governments around the country began to notice the popularity of the RV lifestyle and the growing number of RVers who were overnighting in Walmart parking lots. 

What sparked the local government’s attention?  Some believe that the focus was sparked by local campground owners who saw Walmart-as competition.  Instead of getting $35 a night (or more_ from RVers passing through, Walmart was letting them stay in the parking lots for free.

Campgrounds and their association began lobbying local governments to draw up no overnight camping regulations, even presenting boilerplate ordinances that they could pressure town councils to rubber stamp. Add to that the growing problem of homeless folks moving dilapidated cars into Walmart lots, throw in some well-publicized crime sprees and violence in a handful of Walmart lots, and the trend began to take off.

It doesn’t help when the RVers overstay their one-night welcome and left messes behind.

“No Overnight RV Parking” signs are now springing up in the parking lots of many of Walmart’s 4,700 stores

A few months ago, RV Travel ran a survey asking readers if they believed Walmart would still allow overnight parking in 2025.  57% said, “No.”

Jim O’Briant of OvernightRVParking.com, a membership website that helps RVers find free or very inexpensive places to stay, says too many RVers are unaware of good etiquette.

Jim can be heard on Episode 306 of my RV Podcast talking about the problems newbie RVers are are causing that exasperate the whole Walmart prking controversy.

CLICK HERE TO READ THE PODCAST SHOWNOTES FEATURING O’BRIANT.

Jim has spoken to dozens of Walmart managers around the country and says many times, RVers are their own worst enemy.  Managers have shared stories of BBQ parties, extended stays, and have even witnessed RVers dumping their tanks in storm drains. (By the way, that is illegal). It’s no wonder we’re seeing more RV unfriendly Walmart parking lots. 

Most Walmarts Still Allow Overnight RV parking

Walmart as a company still, as policy, welcomes overnight RV parking.

On their website, it says Walmart “values RV travelers and considers them among our best customers.”

So there’s that, As of today, it’s permitted for RVers to overnight in well more than half of their parking lots.  The Escapees RV Club urges RVers to follow the Good Neighbor Policy when overnighting at Walmart or business parking lots like Cracker Barrel restaurants, Cabellas, and others that normally welcome RVers.

Among the suggestions:

  • Ask the store manager’s permission
  • Park towards the back of the lot away from the store entrances or where directed by a store manager
  • Only spend one night
  • Treat your space as a parking spot and not a campsite, e.g. don’t set out lawn chairs, awnings or grills
  • Leave the site better than you found it. 
  • Purchase gas, food, or supplies as a form of thank you, when feasible.

With so many campgrounds now being filled to capacity because of the huge influx of new RVers, the hope is that they will not be quite as concerned about a dozen or so RVers spending the night for free in the local Walmart as they were back in the days when RV sales were not so hot.

To keep more of those “No Overnight Parking” signs from going up, it’s going to be up to RVers. 

Otherwise, the trend will continue and the number of RV unfriendly Walmart parking lots will continue to grow.
