    How many miles have you done in your M/H in the last 12 months.. ?

    I know a member and was talking to him tonight, who has done well over 10K... home and abroad...

    Approx 18,000 in 15 months... :Cool:

    Every oportunity he is away,,, both he and his wife work...

    He is toying with updating to a slightly larger M/H with an island bed and slightly different layout...:Cool:

    His first motorhome and loves it...:BigGrin:

    Boy do I wish our circumstances allowed us to do that...

    That`s the way to do it....:thumb:

    Just checked the MOT and since purchasing this one in August last its done 11053. There will be another couple of thousand on it by the time we get home end of the month. Generally 14/15000 per year is an average between MOTs. It will be much more this year as we hope to do north Norway in June which can easily be a round trip of 6000.

    No idea really.. We do bottom end of Spain in Jan, and in August do a round trip of Europe for about 7 weeks.. then there are all the rallies and meets in the UK, plus all the weekends we do local trips.. I spose about 10 or 12k per year ??

    Last year we done 4500 and that seems to be about the norm. The most we ever done in a year was 5500. And that was the first year we had a motorhome.

    More time sitting with a glass of vino and less time driving :Smile:

    Collected it end of March last year and managed around 8k km in 5 trips.

    At Easter this year this year we did around 1400km

    Too many km and not enough trips:Sad:
