Full Timers - How many miles a year do you drive?

Had a long chat with a just-retired couple this past weekend at the campground and they bought a diesel p/u and a 5th wheel (both used) for retirement - 1/2 time maybe more, but will be traveling from AZ to VA and PA several times a year.
I asked him about his choice of a 5vr over a Class A and toad and he brought up some good points, some based on mpg. got me to thinking...

If you full time how many miles a year do you do? With the rig and then without as in sightseeing or the like? I'd like to get some idea for budget reasons what I'll need for fuel.
