Yes, ever since we started in 1979. Upto end of 2017 we’ve towed roughly 93 000 miles in 7 caravans.

We towed 81000 miles in all the caravans we had between 1982 and 2013 plus another 20000 in our motorhome since. We have not been abroad for a couple of years which usually adds up the miles.

I followed Kerry's tip of recording nights used and locations camped at. I have to say it is most interesting as we have now clocked up 400 nights in the new van and camped at 143 locations. Did not record distance but can say I would have travelled approx 35 - 40,000 km's most have been travelled the last 3 yrs.
