Had ours 6 years and have put 29k on the truck. 4 1/2 years were working full time. Now that we are retired we are doing more trips, going further, and staying longer. In Sept we leave for a 55 day 5600 mile run to the baloon fest in Abk NM. Some reservations have been made and some will be made in route. Looking forward to that trip!    Pat

30K mikes in 7 1/2 years, so far.  Hope to "adjust" mileage upwards soon. If all goes well, we'll do a 4k mile trip this fall and a 8k mile trip over the winter.

Since 2003 we have averaged 10K a year in our various trucks. Some years are far less.....least being 5000.

Howdy All,

In the three years I have had the Freightliner, it has dragged the toy hauler over 78,000 miles and counting.

We have owned the 780 for 7 months, we have 3300 miles so far.

I hope we can do 5-6k a year for the next decade and a half, then I will retire and run the wheels off of her.

21000 miles in almost 5 years, but my DW and I still work full time.  Once we retire, that number should go up quite a bit.

We have used ours for 6 years, and have logged 73,000 miles.  We seldom bobtail, as we park in an area for a while, and explore in the Jeep, dirt bike, or on foot.  So far, I have found the best MPG, is while on foot!!  Dick T
