What do we have here? It looks like someone took a Chinook RV off of a Toyota or Datsun chassis and put it on this Ford Ranger, and then covered its windows. Now it’s for sale without an advertised price. Don’t expect the Kelly Blue Book to tell you anything about a possible valuation for this strange beast.

From watching YouTube videos about RV life I’ve learned that many—but not all—Walmart stores allow people to park an RV or similar vehicle in the store parking lot for a night. These two RVs are parked at the Walmart store in Maricopa, Arizona. I encountered this scene during a late-night trike ride; it is the first time I have witnessed such “camping.”


Photo was hand-held as I sat on my recumbent trike.
