I'm retired so it was pretty easy to get in 125 nights and 5900 miles in the camper this year before I sold it in June!

Hope to beat those numbers in 2016 when I pick up my 19 next feb

What a timely thread. Tonight is my last night on the road for my current trip. Nerd that I am, I keep a spreadsheet, and it says tonight will be my 163rd night on the road. I think this is the only trip I've made in the Escape this year.

I'm in east Texas, and should be home tomorrow evening.

Terry is not retired and we managed 55 nights in the Escape and I think about 6000 miles. We won't be using it again until next summer.

We are retired but so far have only spent 63 nights in the Skylark this year:
  • 31 in February/March, mostly in Texas, NM, and AZ.
  • 29 in May / June heading to Osoyoos and back
  • 4 in July visiting some friends and staying at a state park.

We will be putting another 21-28 nights in during September/October when we go to the Mississippi River Escape Rendezvous. So we will probably have 80+ for the year.

Slow start, still working. Bought used 17B late April, only camped a total of 13 nights on 3 trips this year, but our semi-annual (hopefully annual starting this year!) big trip coming up in a week. 6 weeks on the road, plans for Yellowstone & Utah, and/or wherever we feel like pointing on any given day. Our #1 rule: no freeways. Our #1a rule: primary highways only if absolutely necessary. We like to stick to the "blue highways" as much as possible.

I'll be in site 85 starting Thursday.

And for the record - Since April, 2011, I've slept in the trailer 697 nights, towed it 68,701.5 miles, averaging 15MPG (US) using the RAV4.

Isn't it a bit early to be asking this question? Still a few months of camping even up here cold north. Methinks it would be a good January winter discussion.

You must keep pretty accurate records, Jon. I started to do this years ago with our tent trailer, but kept forgetting to log them. Maybe I will start up when we get a new trailer.

I would be interested to hear what practises you, or anyone else, employs to keep the records. Just diligence? I kinda fail at that sometimes, as my mind gets onto other things when I stop, and I forget to record the distance travelled. Any tricks or such?
