I am about to go on my longest trip with my 5w from Southern Michigan to Southern Florida. 1350 miles, I would like to go 550 miles a day for the first two days then the remainder the last day. But when I return to Michigan I plan on only about a 4 hour trip I will let everyone know how I did.

Great trip. You'll have mostly flat country so you should be able to make decent time on the interstates. I bought my RV in Lansing which was about 1200 miles from my home here in Louisiana. The only trouble we had was missing our off ramp in Memphis and wasted an hour trying to get back on track in stead of turning around at the next exit.

We've got two trips planned for Florida in September and October. Leaving Sunday for Colorado. That's going to be interesting to see how my truck handles that.

We have done 500-600 in a day. About 12 hours. We stop every few hours to let the dog out to stretch his legs and do anything he needs to.

We just returned from a 2wk trip to Michigan from NC. I planned the route and mileage ahead of time. Since it was our first long distance with the tt I planned 400 miles a day, figured out where that put us then looked for campgrounds close to the toll rds. It worked great. We probably could have done more miles ea day but that us got in, set up and time to relax before the next days drive. We spent 2 nights on the way to SW lower MI. And 1 night coming back since we were already on the eastern side of the state.

If we have to go somewhere that they can't go then yes the will either stay in the camper or go with us and stay in the truck.

We do up to about 600 miles per day. We're about to do Fort Worth, TX to Boston , MA. We are planning on 4 days to do it and then we'll take a month or more heading back.

We never try to rush to our next destination. Our trip planning takes into consideration two major items: campgrounds and fuel stops near where we want to go. It's a beautiful thing when all three coincide, but that rarely happens. Typically we'll lay out our route in 250-300 mile segments, which amounts to 4-6 hours road time. Start out between 9 and 10 and pull in between 3 and four...... stay at least 2-3 nights, sometimes longer if it makes sense, dollar-wise.

It's all about the journey......

we don't worry about miles we usually set a stop time and 1 hour before we start looking a place to stop. I want to set up for the night in semi-daylight, not darkness. usually hook up only the electrical, water and sewer if need be.
