300 to 350, will push 450 if I need to, but not often. I'm retired, I don't like to get up early and I don't like to set up in the dark at night.

We aim for 250 miles a day, sometimes more sometimes less. We enjoy breakfast and on the road by 9:30 want to be where we want to be by 3:30. Back in the day when we called it vacation we would push it, drive all night taking turns at the wheel. ??

How old are you?
I have been a road warrior since the 1960s. Even in slow old cars a normal day was 600-700 miles. If we were in a hurry 1,000 miles.
Now cars go much faster, but I am near 70 and like 250-300 miles at the most.

On the first day of almost every trip we knock off 600-700 miles. I have seen the Dakotas many times. We want to get to the Black Hills or the Rockies so we push it. Wisconsin is centrally located but it is still a good drive to get where we want to go.
After the first day, we may not go anywhere for a couple of days in a row or maybe 200 miles.

On average 8 hours, currently roaming around Canada with my 12 year old grandson, will end up in northern Vermont in a couple days spend a week at property I own then back to Delaware in time for him to start school.

200 - 250 miles in a F53 based mh is a good range for us. Have done 300 but never again unless some tragedy requires it. Allows for later starts and still get where we’re going while the sun still shines.

It depends on how you use your camper. If you have 2 or 3 weeks' vacation and want to go from New York to Yellowstone and back, you'll be pushing it to maximize the time at your destination. If you're retired and on an extended road trip you tend to stay at places along the way long enough to explore the area then move on down the road a few hours and do it again.

We are now in the latter. I've set the RV Trip Wizard travel radius to 4 hours, which gets us 200-250 miles per travel day.

generally we try not to drive more than 300 miles a day. Around 270 seems perfect. we like to hit the road around 9am, stop for a late breakfast, and be off the road no later than 3:30pm.
Works for us.

We used to drive a 1000 mi to get home at midnight Sunday to go to
work Monday . That was crazy but we managed .
No more of that I'm way to old now but still usually drive 300 to 400.
Here in Tx 3 to 4 doesn't get you very far from home
