We will do 3 hours.. since Ocean City, Md is only a couple hours away, that is an easy weekend get away.. I can relax and do some shopping while the hubby goes to the casino. ( his favorite pass time)

We have traveled as far as 500 miles in a day, but we were so worn out by the time we arrived at our destination, we just hooked it up, opened the slides, and went to bed.

Living in southeastern Arizona, we are many miles and hours from almost anything we want to do. A trip to San Diego means we have Tucson less than a hundred miles away, and then virtually nothing until we are on the pass going into San Diego. we stop in Yuma, to gas up before hitting California, but I sure don't want to spend the night there.

200 mile 3-4 hour trips are common for extended weekends. We rarely camp the weekends because of crowds and most places we enjoy are booked weekends.

Too much work loading, set up, tear down and unload for two days. Give me 6 to 8 days minimum.

Similar to others, two hrs max for the leaving Friday night scenario, which is actually how most of our trips are.

2 hours are the most i will drive for a 2/3 day jaunt.6 to 8 perfect for a bit longer. Loading you can take your time doing. Unloading and cleaning up is at least a 1/2 day job.

We just did a 4 hr drive for the Labor Day weekend, coming home Monday. I would prefer a longer stay camping though. Normally we will do a 1 hr one way trip for sat-sun get away.
