Smile how many miles do you drive

Down sizing form a class A an only driving about 225 miles a day during a 6 hr drive, I feel I can drive much more now that I am more relaxed and not so worn out after a day on the road. So far I like the class C very much we have the 2501t with 3 slides.

My longest push was from 9:00 am to 10:30 pm. I'll never do that again.

Miles driven

I drive what I have to be it 250 or 1000, just take breaks with a power nap if need be. Don't have the luxury to poke along to see the scenery. Races are scheduled and you have to be there. Maybe someday I can take my time, but I doubt it. Went from Maine to Knoxville Nationals (Iowa) in 20 hrs. About dead but no other choice. I'll just keep pushing until ---?

I've pulled 532 with the camper in a day, which was a lot considering we left extremely early to get there before 2PM.

Given the option I'll shoot for 300-350 in a day.

With the Class A we had, I was beat after about 300 miles. With the Class C we had, I drove straight from Elkart, IN to south Louisiana (1100 miles plus) with only one stop for a 2 hour nap. I won't do that again, but I wasn't hurting either. Class C was much more comfortable so 500-600 on average was no big deal. With the towables, I try to limit drive to 500-600 miles a day, if we're trying to really get somewhere. I agree with Displaced2 on the stop time. I may start at the crack of dawn or before, but we're looking to stop by 4pm. A lot just depends on where we're going, and how long we have to do whatever according to my work schedule.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

No more than 12 hours of driving not including stops. Am retiring next year so planning on being a rubber neck; so maybe 6 hrs of driving per day.

6 hours of driving is enough for us. We are retired, not in any big hurry and enjoy the scenery. We start looking for camping spots close to 4:00 PM, if that fails Walmart looks good for a one nighter.
Six hours of driving is most often a 8 - 10 hr road trip. Have to stop often for our geriatric dogs, my 67 yr old prostrate and DW and I like to eat.
