From there because of previous travels around the northern US routes we hit Inter state 80 and home. This country, its people, it's history, it's scenery and beauty are awesome. No mishaps or mechanical trouble. What an adventure.

Quite the trip! We're hoping to do a similar trip once I retire (unfortunately many years from now). Longest trip so far is about 3500 miles in two weeks.

A long way. I figure my 26BH has around 40K miles on the wheels over the last 4 years. I've seen a lot of the good ol' US of A, coast to coast, and north to south. Excepting the north east corner of the country. Always felt it was a little too populated up there.

Longest trip towing a trailer was about 4800 km from Ottawa to White Rock BC when we moved here. Wasn't a camper though it was a 5x8 UHaul trailer loaded to the roof and I was towing with an 88 Ram 50 pick up.

Longest trip with a camper is barely worth mentioning at 500 km.

First trip was the 184BH with our V6 Dodge Journey, 1430 miles round trip to Newport, Oregon. The little V6 was the little engine that could (but did) on the mountain hills.

This year was Yellowstone with the Ram 1500, 2533 miles total. Much better TV for the job.

If $ co-operates it's Disneyland in 2015 which will be about 3000 miles there and back.

Can't wait!

WOW, you must be pushing the length limit with the RZR hooked up...

The farthest west from Home (west Michigan) is Minneapolis MN, farthest east is Sandusky OH (ceder point amusiment park), farthest south is northern Indiana (Patato Creek SP), and farthest north is the UP of Mi (porqupine MTNS, and Tahqumonan falls SP. All with differant campers and vehicles and all done in one day (10-12 hours most, exept porqupine mtns we drive in 2 days).

When we had our MH we pulled a 22 ft car hauler with our Surburban on it from NE Louisiana to Dawson creek, BC back home. This was 6000 miles or so. With our TT just CA and back. Try to average 4 -500 miles a day.
