I guess this is for DP's and we don't have one but we use our gas coach about 7 months a year. The other 5 well we're in our S&B. Miles?? Probably about 5K.

I'm a 1/2 timer. Not all at once, but the coach is used about 6 months of the year.

We bought our DP a year ago last week and were "gone glamping" about two to three times a month last year. This includes a couple of week long vacation camp outs but mainly three day local weekend getaways. We even fire the beast up and head for the beaches during the hot summer months using the day use areas for short get togethers. Living in Kalifornia, affords us great weather to be able to use our coach year round.

We really believe using your coach is the secret to a long trouble free life for both you and your motor home. I don't think we'd full-time when retirement does come but we'd sure like the option of staying a few days after all the working folks have to get on the freeway to drive home on Sunday.

We use ours ever other weekend for 3 days and a week or more for major holidays. We do 2-4 extended trips a year also. About 5,000 miles total.

Before I went full-timing and owned a DP we 'averaged' between 50-80 days a year in it and did between 6-9K miles a year on it.
