What's the longest continuous period of time you've spent travelling around in your motorhome?

How literal do you mean?

Ie, how long as in how many hours in one go or how long as in how many days away from home at one go?

Hours - longest time travelled in one go about 8 hours
Days - about 22/23

We find that the novelty of mobile living tends to wear off after a couple of months but the longest distance trip was 8000 miles on a six week tour of Scandinavia to the Nordkapp crossing at Dover/Calais and the longest single day's travel was 525 miles across Belgium/Holland/Germany.

We've just completed the first month of our second year long trip; the first ten years ago in a 94 Autotrail Shawnee, this time in an 03 Autocruise Starblazer ... we love this way of life it's so much simpler.

Had over 6 months when we were 'in bewteen' properties, so were travelling around, and found it quite enjoyable even though it was over the winter period. In fact, although we did have a 'base' site, we got fed up being in one place, so moved around quite regularly.
Other than this, we frequently (well most years) have one period in France of around 8-9 weeks, and often follow that with anbother of up to 6 weeks later in the year.
Other than the year we moved properties, my records show we generally have around 140 'bed-nights' per year in the motorhome, and there is no month in the year we do not use it.

We try to get two six week trips a year to France, one Spring & one Autumn, plus the occasional few days to a week away in the UK. Over the past 6 years we have managed to spend about 110 nights a year in our Burstner T-615. This Autumn we hope to extend our trip to 10 weeks, if we manage it it will be the longest time we have managed to spend together in such a small space!

Two three month sessions each year

End of Feb to first week in June
End of Aug to sometime in November.
Usually 5/6 weeks touring first finnishing up in Benidorm

We find Spain too hot for Jan and Lee after the first week in June, anyway the lawn usually needs cutting by about then
