Our longest was a 1300 mile marathon from North Idaho to Arizona. We had a good weather window and switched drivers often. It took 24 hours of drive time.

About 100 miles, from my house in Darlington, SC to Myrtle Beach, SC, but we are still new to this whole line of fun.

My longest trip is about 300 miles to Batesville Arkansas. Most of my trips are about two hours away. Choctaw Durant, Winstar Casino, and Texas Motor Speedway are my most frequent destinations.

Longest distance towing a camper is 2700 kms (Elkhart, In to Lloydminister, SK). Longest distance towing a larger trailer was 12, 500 kms (Amherst, NS to Vancouver Island and return). Shortest day was 350 km, longest was 1350 km.
I wish i got to travel with my camper more, I am envious of alot of you on here.

Longest trip was a little over 3k miles going from Kansas to Fort wilderness at Disney in Florida, but we towed it a little over 7k miles this summer going to lake of the Ozarks, Branson, and lots of little lake all over Kansas. We didn't sit still this summer and we traveled with a newborn and 5 year old.

When our kids were roughly 8 and 10 we pulled our 94 Jayco Eagle pop-up with our minivan 10k miles in 8 weeks. Started in Oregon, met family in Yellowstone then Denver. Went down through Texas and saw more family in Ft Worth. Then drove across the south to Florida, spending a few days around Disneyworld and Cape Canaveral. Wandered up the east coast, visited Williamsburg and spent some time in DC, then up to Maine to see an old college friend. Took off back west, stopping at Canton OH (football HOF), Wisconsin Dels water parks, and hit Mt Rushmore just in time for the big Sturgis gathering (unplanned), then back to Oregon. No A/C in the pup, even though it was a record hot summer in the south. Tried to camp at parks with swimming pools every night and lots of fans for sleeping. It was a great trip! Kind of burned our kids out on the pup for a while, but even now, 15 yrs later, they still mention things about it they have good memories of.

We towed from Roanoke, VA to Myrtle Beach, SC last week. With a couple gas stops and a lunch break it took about 7 hours.

Did a few 200 mile each way trips last summer (newbie to camping). But planning from eastern NC to Key West in April. About a 900 or so each way. I drive 450-500 miles twice a month so I'm used to sitting behind the wheel but I do know 10 hours is my limit and I feel better at 8.

Have to add my 60 something Dad rode his Goldwing to Yellowstone in 2 days from eastern NC. Now that's an Iron Butt.
