We travel at 57-58 mph, seems to be the magic number for our truck. We catch almost every rest stop we can get. Just completed a trip from Bakersfield to Portland in 22hrs, started last Wednesday. We're now camping at Cannon Beach RV resort

X2 what OC said. We're not in a hurry to get anywhere. Why kill yourself and burn that much more gas? Isn't that what retirement is supposed to be about?

Not sure what happened to my Truck and MPG last trip was only about 4 hour drive headed from Houston To San Antonio but my MPG has dropped to 8.6 this is the same for the last couple of trips. No change in Weight and all tanks empty on the TT. Stayed at 60 to 65 same as normal. (Posted speed it 75 in places) i was getting 10 to 11 mpg in last fall.
I normally only like to drive 8 hour max unless the trip isnt much longer than that or im on tight time line.

Do most of you make a reservation or do you have problems finding a campground when you get ready to quit for the day? Or do you do a truck stop or Walmart?

As long as I don't have a headwind, I set my cruise at 98 km (60mph), put her in "Tow/Haul" and she'll lumber along at 1800 RPM in 5th gear. I live on the flattest part of the planet, and most trips are western Canada, the Dakotas, Minn. Montana etc.

That way I can almost afford to drive it. I've done a couple of 14 hr. trips. I don't mind it, but someone else does. Most of our trips are maybe 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 hrs. but we plan to take one longer one per year.

We plan the trip out best we can, and always reserve. We've used a lot of KOA's in the past.

Like most others we do 300-350 miles a day. Anything more than 6-ish hours on the road is almost too much. Good Exemplar is Goshen: we will drive to Louisville (@ 300 MI) and then Louisville -> Goshen the next day (@ 250 MI)

I am OCD about travel, we have reservations coming and going (I had our overnights to and from Goshen booked in April )

When we finally get the time to do it I plan on 4-5 hour max legs. I figure at 60 mph that would get us about 300 miles per leg. I like taking the back roads and not the interstate hwys also so that will most likely factor in the distance calculation.
