    Just wondering what Funsters' average Motorhome mileage is?

    Ours is pretty much averaging at 5k per annum.

    Our van is 4 years old on November 1st and the mileage is 19500.

    We have only had our motorhome a year but have driven 2000 miles most of that was our Scotland tour:thumb: Motorhome mileage is now 40,000.



    I probably drive around 45,000 miles a year in the company vehicle, im doing something wrong i know:Doh:

    At least 5000 a year - the summer trip usually accounts for half of that, and we're going abroad more often at Easter now. Can't wait for a five figure annual mileage - four more years and counting..

    Hope it's on the "correct" side of the road, regardless of country ::bigsmile:

    Ours is around 3,000 miles per year, but if I can persuade SWIMBO to retire then as many as it takes :thumb:

    Last couple of years it's been about 7,000 miles.
    Might do a few more this year as we're off in 2 weeks for a couple of months in Germany and then in January we'll be off to the Algarve for 4 -5 months and maybe heading down to Morocco.

    Averaging 8000 a year over the past 5 years, about half of that in S Europe. :Cool:

    This thread seems to contradict the idea some folks have that MH don't go far so have low mileage. Clearly Funsters use their MH as they should be used, throughout the year. :thumb:
