We purchased "standard size" Master padlocks at Walmart in Chilliwack for our 19. We were back in the US when we discovered they were too big. We also found out that we couldn't return the Canadian locks in a US Walmart...wrong bar codes or something. Beware.

Yeah, essentially different companies with the same branding and same parent. Many stores with U.S. and Canadian locations don't even carry all of the same products in both countries, and Walmart is just one of them.

I sometimes post links to products at stores (Walmart, Sears, Canadian Tire...) to illustrate information, but they're usually just examples - there's no guarantee that the same product will be available in both countries, or even both online and in the physical stores in the same country.

purchased a pair of Master small padlocks that are keyed the same from Home Depot for both sides of the box and applied a cut out piece of velcro on one side of the lock so it's doesn't damage the clasp (soft loop side). Rather have locks as a deterrent than no locks at all.

When I posted my comment, I wasn't even thinking about travel time, more about storage or parked in the driveway. Sorry and I DO see your point.

Is "Wallyworld" a recreational theme park, a TT store or what ?

I was thinking the same as Robert. Never heard it associated with Walmart, but they do sound similar.

Thumbs up

I use the term: WallyWorld or "WW" as the be all that ends all destination, as described by the Griswolds.
One can stop and eat, shop, use their restrooms, open 24 hours, spend the night and repeat the next day all at -0- cost. There is also Camping World, more attuned to people in rv's, but none the less CW is very similar to WallyWorld, a one stop fix for campers, without the food.
Personally I like Alf's suggestion, stopping at Cracker Barrel around 10 pm, eat a nice dinner, use their facilities and ask for permission to lay overnight. Set the alarm for 6, start the motor to warm up and pick up a hot breakfast to go and be on you way with 2 good meals and no fuss.
