Sure, there were some days we went 300 miles and a couple that we only did 150, but for the most part we stayed right around 200. That way were were always set up and relaxing by cocktail time. This schedule also allowed us to do some sightseeing the afternoon we arrived if there was something close by.
We try to use the "Rule of 2" as well. Although we've added a 4th 2 to the mix and have a couple beers when we get to where we're going !
We both drive so swap out every couple of hours as well.

Preference is about 300-400, but have done a lot of 500 mile days too. When traveling we very often overnight in rest stops or state welcome stations. Welcome stations are preferred as they often have better facilities. We're 65 ft with the toad so we fit nicely into a semi sized space.
