I don't think sleeping in the truck is a good idea. It's not going to be restful sleep. The seats are buckets, they don't recline. Big difference between a box truck and a semi with an actual bed in the cab or an RV with beds. Over-tired and driving along a boring interstate at night is a recipe for disaster.

Get a day room at a hotel if you want to drive at night. Back up so the rear of the trailer is against a solid wall--makes it much more difficult to unhitch the trailer and drive off with it or break into the truck and remove items. Use a really good lock, not one of those cheap ones. Another option is to take the car off the trailer, then back up, then pull the car in close in front of the truck so no one can drive that off. Frankly if you choose a decent hotel and are there during the day, you should have no problem.

I wouldn't want to sleep in the driver's seat either. Is there a way to set up a sleeping space in the truck for yourself?
I used to camp in my horse trailer and it was very comfortable with the proper set up.
Also, if you do take advantage of a Walmart lot, please do go in and ask the manager, preferably with a cart with some items you are buying.
That will help the rest of us who use their lots!
