Walmarts w/RV Sections

My local Wally World doesn't have one, and trying to call around to others relatively nearby, either no one answers the phone or I get disconnected while they try to transfer me to someone who may know.

Soooo....

Is there a listing somewhere online that tells which ones do?

Thanks,

B

I dont know if there is a list of stores that sell rv stuff, but I do know you can go to wal-mart.,com, that lists all walmart items, and purchase any item and have it delivered to your local walmart at N/C.

Most of the WM's here in Southern California are not Super WM's. Our local WM is smaller than the one 25 miles away. Our local WM has a very small selection of rv supplies. The one further away does have a few more things. When traveling, we have found a much better selection of rv supplies at the Super WM's.

We shopped WM online once and had a good experience with their "site to store" delivery

Turns out my WallyWorld has a few feet of shelf space for RV stuff. I haven't emptied my wallet that fast since the last time I was in Vegas!

The Walmarts around my area have really scaled back on the RV section. While it was never big, it is now about 1/3rd the size.

The recent Walmart makeovers have cut out alot of items and selection. They were better when they hypenated (Wal-Mart) their name. I think their profits were better then too!

Thumbs down "Wally World's" RV section

The last time we needed RV TP, my wife bought it at our local Wally World Superstore. After bringing it home, she noticed that it was made in China. We returned it to the store and on our next campout bought a package at the campground's store that was made here in the good old US of A. I didn't even care that it cost more... it was the principle of the thing.

I'll bet Sam Walton is rolling in his grave over how his stores have changed from mostly USA made to foreign.

I have also noticed that my Wal-Mart's selection is really gotten small. I only use them in a pinch. Mine has TP, some chems, small wheel chocks, outdoor rug, extension cord, and maybe and adapter or two....not much more....

I have to say that in my opinion the best prices and selection on many basic stock RV items is Amazon.com. I pay the extra for prime membership and get everything in 2 days (no minimum purchase shipped free), or I can pay $3 and get it the next day. I have even used it while camping and had it delivered to the campground. They stock a large number of Camco items.

For my TT, I bought a set of awning clamps (to eliminate flapping noise in strong wind) from my local WM/KM type store. They were actually BETTER design and lower cost compared to my local RV dealer. Thus, I would recommend people know their products and know their prices - before buying for any store...

A lot of shelf space in Walmart is seasonal. In a lot of states they don't move much RV product when everyone is snowed in.
