Farthest towing distance from home -- 3,200 kms then return the same distance.
Total towing distance with our 2013 JayFlight in 2 seasons -- 17,050 kms.
Longest single day of towing -- about 750 kms. Usually do about 500 to 600 in a day.

Nothing meant by it, but I think I have an observation. The younger crowd here drives a lot more miles a day than I do. I could, but why? My limit is 250-300 miles or maybe less if I want.

We find 300-350 a day is a good fit for us. It lets me keep to around 62 mph and gets us in early enough to get set up and still have time to relax and have a nice dinner. If I were forced to do longer days, I would but I'm not so this works well for us.

Farthest with my trailer was Dayton, OH to Navarre Fl. 776 miles one way straight through.... Longest drive ever was coming back from our honeymoon. Port of Miami to Dayton OH, 1176 miles straight through. That one kind of sucked a little.

Summer of 2013 we towed to Whitehorse from east of Regina, about 1800 miles one way, and back. Last summer, 2014, we towed to Yellowknife, about 1500 miles and back.

We enjoyed both trips so much that we are talking about doing one or the other or both this coming summer.

From NH down to VA, crossed TN into Ark, up to Missouri, back down to Louisiana, over to Biloxi Miss, Mobile Ala, across Florida, up to Charlotte NC and back to NH. We were gone for about one month and travelled about 5K miles. Pulling a Whitehawk 24RKS with a Ram 1500. Like most people who posted we usually limit ourselves to about 400 miles per day.
