I agree but just look at the toad, looks to be fine.
This is what I meant to say.

I have decided I really need to upgrade the sway bars and steering stabilizer. And probably replace the captain's chairs.
San Diego to Sturgis SD towing a flat trailer and three Harley's. We stopped only to gas. Straight thru. Took 29 hours. There were three of us. Took turns, driving till next gas stop.

San Diego to Shasta, Ca (756 miles) towing our jeep. Solo this trip. Dog tired. Left home at 3:30 am, arrived Shasta 5:30pm.

Normally drive no more than 7 hours a day and try to be sipping an adult beverage by 6pm at the latest. Have a rule of keeping coach under 65 mph.

It's about relaxing, being safe and having a good time.

300 - 400 miles is my maximum. No reason to have an accident just to be someplace when I am retired and basically have no place to be in such a hurry that I don't end up making it at all.

If I just HAVE to be someplace important that requires a LOT of long distance driving, I will take a plane.

713 miles from Klamath Falls OR to Thousand Oaks CA in 13hrs for a funeral. It was cheaper to drive the motorhome towing the car than 4 Rt tickets, hotel, car rental.

Not the longest single day trip but a very long trip from Livermore, CA to Lawtey, FL. We left Livermore June 2 after greatgrandchild birthday party to attend graduation for a granddaughter in Starke, FL. June 7. About 2700 miles in five days. A couple of days of rest then much shorter travel days for the rest of the trip which totalled about 10,500 miles.

18 hours from TX to AX to trade in our Gas A for a new DP. 6 hours later, did it again in the reverse with the the new DP. There were two drivers, myself and a friend. We stopped for fuel, but otherwise kept right on going. It was pleasant enough for me, but only due to the excitement of a new rig. Otherwise, my longest drive was a 9 hour push last summer (in the Gas A, just me driving). Got there just fine, but was wishing for a quieter, smoother ride by the end of that one. The new DP would make that 9 hours much nicer..

As of right now it's a toss up between OKC to Houston, TX or Galvenston, Tx to DeQueen AR. Don't know the mileages. OKC to Houston was worse though due to rain and wrecks and driving through Dallas/Houston. My left knee starts to kill me after about 4 hours.

Before I retired I would do 800 miles. Since retirement, my longest day is about 600. I try to plan on 400 miles to a convenient overnight. My wife and I were in Fairbanks, AK when she discovered her best friend had been placed in Hospice care. We drove 4400 miles in 8 days to get home. About half of that Milage was 2 lane and some of that was unpaved. We came down the Cassier highway & some of that was unpaved.
