When we had kids in school, we got in 30 or so nights a year. When it was just the two of us (but not retired), we generally got about 60 nights a year. Retired now, and we spend about 8 months away from home base. This is in the upper Midwest where winter shut us down for 6 months.

45 plus when the kids were little. As we got older life changed. 2014 we spent 300 nights. Of course we were homeless then. Bought a new house in 2015.

Around 100. We camp in the same area as we live and go to work from the campground just to be different and practice for full timing.

When we had a business, we were in it for 6-8 weeks. Been retired for 10 years and use the motorhome to travel between homes and a couple of side trips. Total of maybe 40 nights in the coach. Less than when we were working. We could easily get along without it, but still enjoy traveling in it with friends to play in the desert.

I am semi-retired, but my wife still works full time, so some of my trips are solo, some are with my wife. We are in our 3rd year of class A ownership, and she is averaging around 14-18 days per year in the coach even though she gets about 35-40 vacation days per year.

Iím self-employed with a flexible schedule so we are able to get away a bit more for 3 and 4 day weekends, along with several 1-2 week trips. My wife will take our kids and visit places while I return to work as well. Between all of that we are averaging about 75 nights per year.

We just purchased ours last week but our plan is to get 2-3 nights per month, every month except extreme cold. Fingers crossed our plan is successful!!!

30-45 night a year because of the kids school, but this year it will be 75-90 as I have some solo trips planned.

About 30 this year but that's more than we've ever done. Trying to do more but this hobby competes with a couple others...
