For an RV traveler there's a large, yet ever-shrinking pool of places available for a quick overnight stop. RVers have long looked to retail and restaurant giants like Cabela's, Cracker Barrel, and even casinos for a free or cheap place to pull over for a quick overnight en route to their destination. In the face of municipal pressure, and sometimes in response to ill-mannered guests, many of these time-tested stops are closing their doors to overnight RV stays. Even Walmart, perhaps the best known of the lot docking options, is declaring overnight RVs unwelcome in many communities.
Truck stops, and even rest areas in some states have been other options. However, who wants to try to go to sleep sandwiched between idling truck engines and diesel refer units?
One nationwide chain of travel stops has recognized the need for more places to accommodate RVers. With over 500 locations in 41 states, Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores is in the process of adding new overnight RV sites. We wanted to get a closer look, so we dispatched our friend Dale to the Love's RV Stop location in Guthrie, Oklahoma this week.

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.
We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah during the winter months, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so while you'll occasionally find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. We've now transitioned from "long-timing" for six months a year, to living and traveling in our RV full-time.
We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
