We did 350 miles last summer in one day. With construction enroute, 2 lane blacktop all the way and some winding roads it was a 12 hour day. We stopped for fuel twice and 3 other stops for dog watering, she can go about 2- 3 hours. We made it home from Goshen in one day 400 miles but this Interstate and 400 series highways, that is the limit for me, border crossing home was maybe 10 minutes.

Looking forward to retiring at 57 and then full-timing it. A few years to go before that happens...

I agree with 20-300 miles, park b 4 dark. Enjoy the trip if you are retired.

I would say 350 to 400 miles a day would be ours. RVs are not for being in a rush. Towing a TT / FW or driving a class A, B, C at high speeds is not only dangerous to you and your family, but to all the families on the roadways!

Slow down, drive safe......and simply enjoy your trip!

Our get home plan is 500 miles each for 2 days and then a 3rd day of 225 miles.

Just drove 1800 miles in 5 days, which was comfortable, towing a 35' Rockwood. Due to a late start, we drove 3 hours after sunset to get on schedule. I didn't like driving after dark but got through it for that first night.
Truck and trailer did great and as for setting up...we stayed at a Casino south of DesMoines with concrete pads and all pull thru spaces so it was a snap. No leveling or searching.

If I'm going to tow in the dark, it's almost always early morning, instead of after sundown. There always seems to be less traffic and I'm usually better rested.

Several times a year I make treks from Salt Lake City to destinations between 4 and 13 hours away.

If the trailer is well matched to the tow vehicle and both are well maintained, it's not much more fatiguing than going without the trailer. The open highways through southern Utah and all of Nevada are perfectly boring, which is presents an ideal towing situation.

Now if I were towing down the 101 from Astoria Oregon to San Francisco I'd have a totally different opinion. It really depends mostly on the road quality and weather conditions.
