What is the farthest you have driven in one day.

This weekend I drove the rv from San Diego to ls Vegas and back. This is now the most I have driven my rv, all together it was just shy of 700 miles averaging. 70-75 and 7.84 mpg. I have decided I really need to upgrade the sway bars and steering stabilizer. And probably replace the captain's chairs.

Wondering why one would drive a MH 350 miles to Vegas , turn around and come back another 350 miles, all in one day?

1260 miles twice - Akron Ohio to Punta Gordo, Florida and back in December 2013. To be honest, took 26 hours or so each way. Slept 4-5 hours in a Walmart in Statesville, NC coming and going.

did just under 900 in a day towing a TT, never again, got there earlier but was tired I sleep on arrival.

By the time I woke up it was the same if I broke up the drive.

Now my limit is 600 but 500 works better.
Leave early like 5 or so stop at 7 for breakfast, do about 10 hours driving

Drove home from Augusta, GA - about 630 miles. Planned on stopping somewhere in NC but there was a NASCAR race somewhere around there and could not find anywhere to stay. So we just kept going.

I just adapted the way I've always travelled to the RV, I'm on the road for 14 or 15 hours, from 7am to 9pm, but average about 12 hours of driving time. I take 2 breaks each morning and afternoon and of course stop for lunch and dinner.

Doing the drive this way I can generally do 750 miles a day without any issue.

850 miles, Las Vegas-to-Amarillo, with a stop at the Grand Canyon. It was 1966, and in my VW Bus I couldn't go over 60. Good old Route 66, hated it.
