I like a 300 mile limit these days, though is enroute to somewhere cool I'll do 400 trying to get there.

It's real hard to get up, breakfasted, showered and gone when we're camping, not sure how we do it getting to work at home?
I like to stop and stretch my legs every hour or so, walk the dog's, ya know?
And I like to get to a campground in plenty of time to set up, walk the dogs around and explore and visit, and grille a good outside dinner.
No 500 mile days and sleeping in parking lots for me, we caaaaaamping!

If the DW is with me 400 to 450 is a normal day. Alone I sleep in rest areas and try to put in 500 to 600 to get where I'm going. Last week made it from Anaheim, CA to Cincinnati, OH in just under 4 days.

Really depends on the trips purpose, if it's just to get there 600 is not too much, if we are on the road to get away we may stop after 250.

Depends where I'm going. My record is 1450 miles in one day - but that was in my 1955 Porsche Speedster Carerra RSK.

In the MH, somewhere around +/- 300 is very comfortable.

I have found that by the time you add in fuel and food and pee stops my average speed is about 50 mph. So 10 hrs 500 miles , 6 hrs 300 miles ect.

300 or 6 hours. We want to enjoy the trip and not just rush to a destination.

The main place my husband and I go is back home to see his mom, its Houston to southern Indiana. He always wants to drive straight through, it about kills me and wears out daughter and I totally out. Of course he is still working and his time is limited.

He gets so tired before he is there he is all over the seat. Usually he will stop and sleep an hour or so. I try to help him drive but I no longer drive at night. And he listens to the crazy GPS and last time at night he got on some crazy unfamiliar roads in the motorhome at night.

He tried that in our other motorhome, and made me a nervous wreck I don't want to drive that fast. We are due to go up there in July. I am dreading it already.

I'm hoping once he retires he will slow down. But his idea is get up early, get going, and get there. My idea is get up whenever, enjoy the ride, and not worry about getting there. This is one of the reasons I'm traveling in the motorhome now. I'm not sure I can handle it when he retires if he continues like that. If he does that will likely be the end of motorhoming.

I'm hoping he will slow down and smell the roses but I honestly don't know if he will, time will tell.

Our goal is 400 miles a day. However, I have a hard time finding campgrounds spaced 400 miles apart. So we end up doing 350 to 425. When we retired to the Ozarks a trip to Florida to see our kids was a 2 day trip. Then It became a 3 day trip which has now turned into a 4 day trip. A good day of travel is on the road by 9 or 10am and a 4pm arrival at the next RV park.

I hear that!

My wife and I both still work so when we go somewhere, I want to get there as quickly and safely as possible without getting all worn out. I have gone 12 hours, but the older I get, it's more like 8 or 10. All depends on time available and how far your headed. Oh, age may also be a factor...

I still have that four letter word I have to deal with, but this year I'm taking extra time specifically to enjoy the ride. I've got it planned with 355 miles stop the first day and 360 the second. Divided by a 50 mpg will be around 8 hours, just right for me, which includes stops for puppy poddy, smoke, and just relaxation....
