Towing with the rig in my signature, 250-300 miles per day. Last trip was just over 300 miles and it took us 8 hours including rest stops.

As a kid, my brother and I drove to Montana from San Francisco, non-stop. 1000 miles in 24 hours. I was 17 then.


There is something special about camping in an RV.

How old are you?
I have been a road warrior since the 1960s. Even in slow old cars a normal day was 600-700 miles. If we were in a hurry 1,000 miles.
Now cars go much faster, but I am near 70 and like 250-300 miles at the most.


I'm 86 years old, only been at it since 2001. Recently switched from diesel to gas.

We are not usually in a rush. I like to stick around 250 miles in a day but will go 350 to get to the right destination for the night if needed. I'm not the fast one on the freeway, usually 60-65 mph.

We are leaving this Saturday and our driving miles are 226 the first day, 181 the second and 135 for the third day arriving at our destination for 7 days.

Normally, we will leave about 11:00 AM from a RV park and then we try to arrive by 5:00 PM to the next one. And, that includes having lunch along the way and getting fuel when needed. I don't like to arrive in the dark at a strange campground so in the winter months, we might stop by 4:00 PM.

I like to have my cocktail ready around 5:30 to watch the evening news where ever we end up if we can get a signal (99% of the time we can).

I am 51 and when traveling with family we only have so much time. So I may knock of 300 miles after work only to do 600 the next day to get to our destination. I have traveled up and down the east coast and without a doubt I average 50 miles per hour taking into effect bathroom brakes, traffic etc.

Congratulations on being able to still RV , tell us your secret .
I'm 78 so maybe I can RV another 10 yrs , I hope so .

Many people at 86 can't get into a Coach and sure couldn't drive
one .
However people are living longer more active lives so there may be
more seasoned drivers out there than I thought .

Our rule now is no more than 5 - 6 hours a day - and we MUST arrive before dark! We've been known to drive only a couple of hours if there's something on the way we want to see! Fortunately, we're retired and generally try not to be in a hurry anymore! As to how many miles a day? Depends on our mood in the morning. Sometimes use the Interstates, so miles pile up. Some days, we just choose to wander. It is a blessing to have the choice!

We full time (the RV is our only residence) but we also travel as a business venture so our travels vary depending upon need. We try to only travel about 300 miles per day but if the boss says it's important we can do 400/day. If there is somewhere along the way that WE feel might be worth the effort we have done a couple of 500 mile days just so we could play or enjoy that particular destination along the way. We do travel "at least" the speed limit except where the speed limit is 75 or above as we really like 72ish. You will get 1000 different answers from 1000 different respondents so what works for you is the right formula!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

old dave last week I loaded up my race car, left Thur morning and drove 200mi to a race track where I unloaded and raced 3 races in the next 3 days. Loaded up Sunday and backed this mess in the driveway about 9pm. No help just me. I do this frequently but some times it is 1000mi.

As a retiree I do not pay much attention to mileage. Our goal is to leave before 0900 and stop by about 2:30 pm. The miles are what they are. More if on an interstate and less if on side roads or if stopping for site seeing.
