We bought our signature rig in mid-July. We did 19 days out between late July and the end of October. I winterised just after Thanksgiving - missed the start of a major freeze by 4 days, thank goodness.
The RV is currently alongside the garage in its winter quaters, on-the-road insurance suspended, and it probably won't be backed out again until mid-April.
Meanwhile, I'm working on a number of projects - shock-mounts for the VCR and DVD player in the driver's side overhead. so that the rotten surface of I-5 through Seattle doesn't destroy them both - addition of a D/A converter for over-the-air TV - a new co-ax run so that cable TV can be watched (existing run has serious problems) - addition of a rope ladder to the driver's door sill so I can get out without killing myself - revision of the electrical power hook-up so I can close the compartment door - ditto for water hook-up.
There's no end of clever stuff to do when you're an RV owner!
