We once traveled about 600 miles but usually 250-300 miles per day in our DP. We are fulltiming so no need to hurry.

300 is pretty easy and 450 is pushing it. We'll leave early and take a lunch break on those legs.

How far in one day?

I'm not retired as of yet,so I like to leave early and be set up and enjoying an adult beverage by supper time. DP is the only way to go,makes the drive so much easier.

We have done over a thousand miles in one day. Moncton, New Brunswick to Buffalo, NY on one trip and Elkhart, IN to Rapid City SD on the other. Both trips involved big cities with Boston being in the middle of the one trip and Chicago in the beginning of the other trip. Average for us is probably more in 500 -700 range which is doable without being dumb about it.

When you have your own business time off is precious and we tend to push it at times.

I don't go by miles but hours behind the wheel. DW does not drive our coach so 5 is my goal. Never more than 7. This old body gives out at five plus my Goldie gets mad and tired at 5 hours. She rules!!

When I bring a new to us coach home, I'm usually by myself. Not uncommon to drive 900-1000 miles in a day on interstate hwys. I just want to get the rig home. Makes for a long day. But with Missus with me, that'll easily drop in half. She hates power drives.

950mi solo is my max. I don't like to drive more than 500 in a day and 350-400 is better.

I agree... miles are irrelevant. Retired... don't care... no schedule...stop when I want as often as I want... too many things to see...dang... just passed the worlds largest bottle of ketchup... gotta turn around... :-). Margaritas by 3 pm sounds great.... you pick any certain time zone?
