In 2010 we camped 58 days. We will make our first trip of 2011 in March for 14 days. I generally like to stay a month each trip.

Use mine about 45 days a year. Put around 6000 miles on it each year.

We got our first camper on January 15th, 2011 and have already spent 5 nights in it. Three Rivers S.P., Torreya Pine S.P., & a private C.G. in Carrabelle. We're probably going to spend the last weekend of February at Florida Caverns S.P.
We've got a site at Winners Walk I @ Dega for April, and a site at The Legends @ Atlanta in September.
We'll probably spend at least 50 nights in it this year.
We're in love with our new baby.

Normally around 90 to 100. With this years race schedule it looks like we will be just over 120 this year. Our Sunseeker is truely our second home. We have a blast in that thing.

Our youngest daughter plays competitive softball. When we were deciding if a camper would be feasible, we said,"Hey, we can use it when Taylor plays softball." Not all of the tournamaents are far away or out of state, but even the ones that are 1 1/2 hrs or more away, if we can find a campground that saves us from having to get up at 4 Am cause the coach wants them at the field an hour before the game to warm up etc. having the trailer option is worth it! And i agree, sometimes it is just the change of scenary that is refreshing, so going to the state park that is 4 miles away for an overnighter and a campfire is energizing. that's my 2 cents.....can i get change please?

Now that I've had a camper for a few years, I just hate it when I go somewhere without it and have to stay in a hotel. It's just awesome to be able to throw your clothes, books, and whatever else you want in the camper and go and not have to wag it in and out of a hotel. I'd say we are about average if 31 nights a year is the average, maybe a little more or a little less. We really enjoy just having weekend getaways in it. My wife and I both work, so we can't go off for months at a time, but we really love it and plan to spend half the year or so RVing when we do retire, Lord willing.

Our opening "half" season (we got the MH in July) we did 19 nights out. Hoped to double that or more this season, but I've been sidelined with back surgery and I doubt we'll be out before the beginning of June.

Daughter, son-in-law and 7 year-old grandson may use it a bit before then, provided Grandpa fills the gas tank first!

I made a new years resolution for 2011 that we were going to use our camper at LEAST one weekend a month! So far we have 14 nights.

March 2011 was a wash...had to have foot surgery and that got in the way of camping... but made up for it this past weekend.

I think last year 2010, we did 12 nights....hope to EXCEED that this year! Even if I have to camp in my backyard
