This year was about 4 1/2 months. Next year we hope to be around 6 months and the following year if everything goes as planned then we'll be full timing. We're happy anytime we are out in the rig, so we figured that full timing will be the next step since we both want to see more of this great country.

One month in Fl, March. Three 1 week trips the rest of the year. Satisfied, I would like to use it more but there are other things in life, it's only one of many interests.

If it's okay I will combine our experience in the fifth wheel, which we had for four years, and the motorhome which we have had for just one year. We try to use ours at least once a month. We take a one to two month long trip each year. In the first year with the motor home we have put about 16,000 miles on it. We are very satisfied with the amount of time we spend in our motorhome.

We only use our RV from May through October. It then sits with a cover (and snow) over it otherwise. This past year we spent 46 nights in the RV and we typically average 45-50 per year. I figure that is like living in it for a month and a half, but we it is spread out as we go almost every weekend during the summer months.

I very much enjoy the use we get out of it but also never like to put it away, which is what I will be doing in the next week

This year we were only able to make a 2 week trip. Very satisfied and would have nothing else. Next year hope to use it more.

We used ours for about 60 days this year. We would go even more but our kids are 8 & 11 and school keeps us home.

5-6 months per year and, yes, we're satisfied with that for the most part.

Now that we are no longer full timers, we still use the RV constantly. From Oct thru April, we are snowbirds in Texas. From May thru Sept, it is parked on our RV lot in the western Idaho mountains and we use it probably 3 out of 4 weeks every month. It is the house that doesn't get much use....

Last year we were gone almost every weekend. This year it was weddings, graduations, grandbabies being born, cookouts, rehersal dinners, doctor appointments, etc etc etc etc and so on and so forth. Didnt get to use it once. Not even ONE SINGLE TIME!!! But I may...I just might...maybe....
