We use our trailer for several short trips during the summer. Last year was our first year with a travel trailer it was a 98 mallard. We just bought a new 2011 hideout. And have used it twice so far and have 12 more trips planned. The farthest we will be going is 5hrs 1 way. Most others are only a couple hr drives.

Marc, Sounds like your from big oil and planning on counting your summers bonus. No, I guess not. We'll be gone every chance I can. Worked too hard in my life not to go. I'm going to try not to let my engine cool off, except to kindle a campfire, and pour another coffee.

With young ones in school its had to get away during the school year. I also teach. We try to get out a couple of times before summer and go as often as we can in the summer. In the PNW the weather can be cold and rainy so its hard to get away early in the year.

Yes the young ones in school does limit the amount of trips. And this PNW weather was a huge part of the reason we stepped up to our new 31bhswe. That way there is plenty of room for the kids when the rain starts lol. And in WA that can be any second lol

We attend local rallys at least 6 times a year, then make 2 long trips a year, one is usually around one month long to family, then a 2-4 month long trip to many states. We plan to visit all 49 land based states, we're at 38 right now.

When we bought our 'A' in Jan. '10 we did our maiden voyage to a CG in Miami/Everglades and then went to see a new GS in New Jersey. We then made a turn to the West that lasted 5 months. The following summer, it was another 5 months to Alaska and more of the West we missed the first time. That last trip was fantastic but a hard one that almost burned us out. Now we are planning to slow this train down a bit and stay longer at CGs in the areas we visit. I think the 12.5 and 13.5K mile summers are pretty much over... Time to cool the jets with shorter trips. Bob

Before we went full-time, we went out at least every other weekend from May through Oct. Some of those were 3 or 4-day weekends plus at least one full week every year.

Before we went full time, we had never RVed before. So maiden voyage was (and still is) continuous.

We take a 2 week vacation trip somewhere, other than that we go every other weekend from snow gone till snow cover. I love early spring and late fall camping, no crowds.
