We towed from Palm Springs, CA to DFW, TX with three two hour rest breaks. Seems like that was about 34 hours total time. Felt pretty darn good at the end. I have towed many 500+ mile days and felt great at the end of the trip each time.

Must be the "Fancy Stitching" on the seats. [emoticon]

not if you were in a truck with air-ride seats. Those things are very comfortable and you don't feel "beat up" at the end of the day.
I do have air ride seats.

Oh, then disregard. I have a bottom of the line truck and the seats are horrible. At the end of a long day of driving I feel pretty darn tired. My last truck had much more comfortable seats and I felt better at the end of the day. I'm older now, which probably isn't helping anything...

Yeah, me too. It's not physical discomfort, it's just the hypnosis of looking at the road, trying to avoid ruts and potholes, and sitting in one place for hours on end. The human body isn't really designed for that.

I'm sure the fancy stitching is good for another easy 150 miles to anyone's trip.
