Since picking up our trailer in January .... we have towed it 3,400 miles. We are parked for the winter in Arizona ... so I guess that will be our total for the year.

Moonshot ... I like the name of your trailer!

Well, I'll tow nearly 400 this weekend, which will put us near about 700 this year, which I think is pretty good considering I've only had my A/S since July.

It'll get way more than that this spring when we pull it out to Vegas.

SWe tow about 10,000 miles per year, 5k in the spring, and 5k in the fall -- and love every mile of it!

How many miles will you tow this year?

For the past ten years, I have averaged more than 4,500 miles per year with one of my Airstream product coaches. The 2004 travel season was one of my shorter seasons due to a major move - - only traveled 3,000 miles. Plans for the 2005 season currently include more than 6,000 miles, but much of that is dependent upon the cost of fuel and time availability due to employment change.

Hmmm, I am somewhat surprised by our total.
We did over 2000 miles without going on any big trips! A Commwealth rally here, a WBCCI region 3 rally there, and a couple of unit Rallies and it all adds up.
Looks like next year could be even more miles with Florida State Rally as a first outing

We put on over 6000 this year, thanks to the trip to OK and a seperate trip to a rally in CA. Then there were the trips to Ashland, OR. It all adds up quick!

I think the poll needs a few more options with higher numbers. 1500 isn't all that much, I'm sure we got that much in our first year towing! Maybe it's the wide open spaces out here, we have to go further to get where we're going. Next year we're off to Mt Rushmore, so I'm expecting several thousand more miles. Good thing I got that new axel!

In the last three years, we've averaged about 2000 miles per year and 30-35 nights out.

2005 will be much higher (over 5500/60+nights) as we will attend International and National Rallies which we haven't done before. Not bad for working folks!

I agree. I'll ask a moderator to add a new item or two and modify the last one. Thanks!

I've added a couple of options for the 'high-octane' travelers ~

If you've already voted and want me to change your poll, let me know via a PM and I will do so.

If you have a motorhome, please feel free to chime in with your mileage.

I don't live in that world so it just didn't cross my mind when creating the poll. Sorry!

We took the Southwest Caravan the round trip was over 7k. We already had a trip to Florida there and back about 1600 miles. Then the weekend rallys in Virginia 200-500 usually. They add up quick but they are a lot of fun.
