Most Mileage on Motorhome

I'm just curious who has put the most mileage on a single motorhome that they own or owned. I'm looking for mileage you personally put on your motorhome.

I put a total of 20,000 miles on my previous motorhome but I'm sure there are those that have done way more than that.

Let me know.

Hi kketterling,
There is 70K on the current coach. By the end of August it will be about 80K. August will be the 6th anniversary of the coach.

I met someone at an RV park who said he has put 350,000 miles on his MH. I think that was across more than one MH.

Our unit has 405000 km on it. Think thats around 300000 miles.
Engine is original, auto rebuilt last year after parts of the brake on the driveshaft came loose and damaged the casing
Uses no oil between changes

dapope: Did you put all those miles on the coach if so I'm envious. My wife will retire end of this year and our goal is to start racking up some miles on our coach and see more of this great country.

No, we have only managed to rack up 20000 of them, its an ex hire vehicle. We want to go for a Mirada, which can be obtained in Aus and complianced. (many of your rigs are simply too wide to be road legal here)
Then our plan is to go round and thru Aus until we are over it. ideally if we can figure out how to afford it, we will do Europe and the states as well
I retire in a little over 3 yrs ,but we will finance the Aus trips by working part time, and hope fully add to the nest egg

We have a 2000 33V Pace Arrow with a Ford Triton V10 in it. I bought the coach in 2000 with a little over five thousand on the clock. The ''clock'' now reads 111,987 miles and I put them all on the coach. The tranny was replaced at about 95,000 out in Denver and I put new ''U'' joints in it at about 101,000 thousand miles. The starter has been replaced at about 103,000 miles and other than regular maintenance that is about that has been done to the power train. The engine might ''use'' half a pint of oil between changes and it still runs like a song. I can not remember when I changed the plugs in the engine but I have had all belts, hoses, and all liquids changed on the coach at about 75,000 miles. I plan to keep the coach because we love the layout. I talked to one guy that had a coach exactly like ours and he told me that they had over 250,000 on their coach and it still ran strong. His was the same color and year as ours. He was a full timer.
Lets all remember our veterans on Memorial day May 30.......cj..

I think I put more miles on my truck looking for our new coach than I have on the coach at this time. HEHEHEHE

But we are looking forward to our first long trip this summer. Still working out the plans on the trip, but we are planning on being gone 5 to 6 weeks.

We're new to RV'ing, but have driven over 5,000 miles since January (AND both worked full time).
