    How many miles do you do in a year? Is there an acceptable yearly mileage for a used motorhome?, I am led to believe it is about 5000.

    We allow for 7000 on our insurance. If we don't come close we've clearly been sitting in front of the tele too much.

    In 3 years we have done 22,000km across UK, France, Spain Portugal, so 5000 miles is about right. This will change next year as we plan to be away lots.

    64,000 in 8 years or average 8,000 per year. We have unlimited mileage as there was no cost difference on our insurance.

    We did just over 12000 last year, but we spent 6 months in Spain and do very few miles once we are there. :rolleyes: :ROFLMAO: Bob.

    Strange question. It's not how long it is it's how much you enjoy it.

    One mile is acceptable if that's what you want.
