Not enough!
That will change this year - we've been using a '66 Apache Raven pop up and get out 7 to 10-12 days a year (usually a week and a couple of weekends).
Last year we got a campground resort membership and did a whole 3 days there...plus a week and a weekend elsewhere.
My wife can't set up the popup herself, it's totally canvas topped (so if there's even a threat of rain we'll stay home), no bathroom, outside kitchen...the concept when we bought it was to get a bed that's not on the ground and not have to pack up everything every trip - and that's worked well.

At the RV show over the weekend we bought a Grey Wolf 28BH so camping will be more fun this year just because we got a new camper. Weather won't be an issue- it's got heat and AC and with the kids and dog if we are stuck inside we won't go insane. It can be left at the resort so setup isn't an issue.

Time is always an issue and my wife works m-f 9-5 and I'm self employed and usually work saturdays - but now she and the kids can go out friday night, i'll come out say and she'll leave sunday and the kids and I can leave monday night (or so goes the plans of mice and men).

Usually 3 weekend before May 1st, then every weekend from May until Mid September to go to the lake. We pick up again after boating season and camp almost every other weekend until Mid-Nov or the first snow fall.

So i guess about 50-60 per year.

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!

We are going to get a 10 day trip to South Dakota late June early July, 4 day trip to Calgary, a couple in the yard campouts as my wife has a group of ladies out for 3 days over the summer to just kick back and relax (I get to be the cabana boy and keep their camp fire stocked, make early morning coffee etc) swim etc. Then we have a family campout with 15 or 20 people and a few campers and a bunch of tents. We even set up a projection system with big sound and have a back yard drive in (the beauty of your closest neighbor 1 1/2 miles away and a 16 1/2 acre yard). The daughter gets married this summer so DW's sister from Ontario will be using the trailer for 2 weeks. Then we go to the annual threshing weekend at the local old farm muesum. So all in all 25 or 30 days.
