I really enjoy going to new places and seeing new CG's and destinations. My typical max length is 1 week. Obviously when traveling to a destination I'll do a 1 or 2 nighter, sometimes 2 nights so I can spend the day exploring the intermediate stop rather than setup, sleep, pack and go. On this recent trip I'm on I did several 2 week stays. Upcoming will be a 1 to 2 month stay for various reasons (pickleball, improving my own diet and fitness which was a goal of this trip, failed so far, and keeping the puppy in one place).

How long do you typically like staying in one place?

Since we own a lot at the Polson Motorcoach Resort, that's our "home base" during the spring/summer/fall months and we stay there for a few weeks at a time. Otherwise, we typically spend just "a few days" at other campgrounds during our travels.

I generally stay about a month. A few places I only spend a night or so when 'en route'. During the summer I stay at one for about five months, but that's where the kids are.......

We tend to be travelers In a leisurely way. We like to stay at least two nights, unless on a timetable for some reason. When we hit special destinations we will stay 4 or 5 days, and take time to relax and savor the sights. When we get a chance to stay in extra special spots such as Sante Fe, NM, or Key West, we will settle in for a week. We have so enjoyed discovering places that we want to visit again for longer periods. Judy D

I could have checked all the boxes. If we are heading to a certain destination across the country we may have a few days that we only spend one night at a CG or a dry camp site. We have also booked a week in a spot and then decided we needed another week and stayed on. There is a CG we enjoy in costal Alabama that we always book for a month stay. Up north in the summer while visiting family we stay by the month in a CG. Then of course our winter site we utilize for 4 months or so.

I still work/own a business, so a large percentage of my RV travel is business related. If I go someplace for work, I try to make count by staying several days and calling on clients when I’m in an area.

Right now, it’s the Christmas holidays we are in Amarillo to hunt for 5 days then to Lubbock for I think 9 days for Christmas and New Years then either back to Amarillo for a few days or OKC to work.

My career has kept me on the road and in hotels where never had any idea what the person(s) did before you and you never get a good night’s sleep. Now we load up the MH and enjoy the journey.

We are spending the winter based in South Carolina, but going on a few 2-3 weeks trips in Jan and Feb. In April we plan on going Cross Country and tentatively planning on 2 week stays with 1 nighteries in route.

We’re both still working, so 1 week at a time is the norm for us. If we’re making a destination trip like Acadia or Florida from Maryland, then 2 weeks, with an overnighter (or 2) while traveling.

Wife and I have been speculating what a 3 or 4 week trip would be like.

My feet get itchy to move after about a week. Sometimes I make it 10 days. Like others, if I'm traveling from A-B we stay 1 or 2 nights.

i am new to this rv and we made 4 trips before our renovation. They could have been 1 day trips, but took 2 days to get there, then stayed a week. The next trip is a vacation business trip to Salem Oregon. I’m thinking of traveling three days let’s say to Moab Ut, stop a week Side see and work, then travel on to Salem. I guess I’m more or less flexible to the situation.

We have always been weekend warriors, but plan to change that this year with the new rig. :)
