Have you ever seen a parking garage and wondered if you could stay overnight? Depending on your route and RV size, sleeping in a parking garage might be for you. Keep reading to learn more about using parking garages as possible overnight options in your RV. Let’s dig in!
Overnight parking is camping for one night in a parking lot or similar location. It’s less about the camping experience and more about just finding a safe place to spend the night to get some sleep. Overnight parking is either free or almost free.
Parking garages are often well-lit places. But depending on what garage you choose, you might not be the only one there. Garages at 24-hour grocers and hospitals have cars coming and going at all hours. Your vehicle arriving late in the night might not raise any eyebrows.
While having security can be a benefit, it can also be a disadvantage. Even if the parking garage doesn’t have signage banning overnight parking, security can ask you to leave. Another disadvantage of choosing a parking garage is that you might not even fit. Depending on the size of your rig, it might exceed the maximum height limits of the garage.
