I answered 2 days, reality is somewhere between 2 days and a week, I think my longest at any one place was 8 days.

I also answered 2 days, as the longest we usually stay is 2-3 days.
Although we did do 5 nights in Maine this last summer, but that was a one time thing so far.

It depends on the type of RVing you're doing. Seeing the sights and you'll spend less than a week. But chasing the weather, well then a month or more.

We're still seeing the sights. But after the Canadian Maritimes and the Pacific coast, I see us spending a month or two at Traverse City, Banff, Glacier N.P. , Bar Harbor, Mountain Falls, N.C. etc.

Average would be in the three night range, so I voted 2 days. We volunteer at state parks and stay two weeks at a time two or three times a year, so that'd skew the average.

5 months one place in the winter, 2 or 3 months somewhere in the summer in one or 2 places, spend a month or so traveling cross country from one to the other...

Typically 7 to 10 days at a destination location - event, etc. Traveling between destinations, typically 2 to 3 days before moving on.

In the past it's been 1-2 days when traveling...unless lobster or something breaks is involved. With this present coach, we hope to change this to 1 to 2 weeks...trying to slow down a bit and smell the 'local'.

It kinda depends for me. If I'm working, it's monthly stays every time. If I'm in vacation mode, it's a week long stay before moving. If I'm going to a specific place, for a specific reason, I might do just a couple of days. Pull in the night before, sleep, do whatever I had planned, then head out the next morning. I'm full time, so when I'm just living life, I try to stick with monthly stays. It's cheaper, easier, way less headache then moving all the time, and gives me plenty of time to explore the surrounding area.

I voted for monthly or longer since that's what I normally try to do.

I voted as 1 week. But that is only true when destination travelling. For getaway trips with friends that still work, I usually arrive the day before everyone else and may even stay a day later.
