I got back from my trip around 4:30 pm today. I traveled 1840 miles in five days.
I am really tired from all of the driving today, so I will give more details of the trip tomorrow.

That's hard driving if you are not used to it.

agree ^
Why beat yourself up ?
I recommend no more than 250 a day for a relaxed ride.
Going slower lets you see more too.

Shadow, don’t know how you could keep that pace.
It a lot tougher drive in and RV than a car

I stick to the rule... 200 miles, 2pm, or 4 hours. Which ever comes first.

It was a good trip, just a lot of driving. With this being my first time driving an rv a long distance and living in it, I found
it quite easy to do. I have plenty of battery power in the rv and was able to watch tv at night and run my maxxair vent fan
all night. The only thing you really need to keep track of is your water, I did not run short on water, even after taking three
showers, but you need to be aware of what you have.

Driving my rv was a breeze, it was like driving a large station wagon, but it is small at twenty three feet long, compared
to the larger bus type of rv`s. As long as you know how to use the side view mirrors and keep track of what`s around 
you, you shouldn`t have any problems. Also remember to watch your speed. I set the cruise control at 65 mph and 
stayed in the slow lane, I was in no hurry.

There are a couple of things in the rv that I need to fix. I have a cabinet door that likes to come open while driving,
and no matter what I did to adjust the latch, it didn`t help. So I will be replacing the original latch with two magnetic latches, 
My screen door latch also broke so I need to order a new one of those also.

So, now for the information some might be interested in.
I traveled 1840 miles in five days. My gas mileage ranged from 7.60 mpg to 12.99 mpg
My total fuel cost was 667.02.
Miscellaneous stuff 431.22.
Total cost 1098.24.
