We travel extensively and are at about 120,000 on 5 Rvs and 5 toads (or tow vehicles) over the course of about 12 years, so I'd say "John" is indeed a well-seasoned traveler!

gee

I didn't think we travelled much ... 125,000 miles in two Winnebago Motorhomes in a little less than 11 years ...

I am not going to stop travelling ... but I guess I am going to have to quit saying we don't travel much ....

The RVIA says and average RV travels about 6000 miles per year. We consider that a short year, with 8000-10,000 being typical and 12-16000 our longer travel years, when we drive cross country (Florida to the Pacific Northwest). And we travel 6-7 months a year. If we fulltimed, it would probably run a little higher.

Since 1985 I have used a motorhome to tow my race car. All of the mileage except approx.10%(camping) has been with an open trailer or mostly a 24-26 foot enclosed trailer(7-9000lbs).
coach#1 22' Midas mini put 40,000 miles on it
#2 24' Coachmen catalina bought it new 115,000 miles
#3 32' Winnebago Adventurer bought used put 60,000 on it
#4 36' Winnebago Journey, bought used this spring,put 6,000 this year

That is over 220,000 , many of my fellow racers have put on more, up to double in that time. nothing like a rv,been thru 3/4 of this country and the rv people and racers that you meet are great and we have made life long friends. Go to an event and pull in for 1-6 days, can't beat it. never any hookups

When we bought our 2000 Foretravel in 2004 at the Foretravel factory, an elderly couple came out of their early 1990's Foretravel Grand Villa. They said that they had 300,000+ miles on their motorhome and that we should go everywhere we could in ours! (We only have 87,000 miles on ours).
