    The most amount has been 12 days; 5 days in Canada Niagara Falls and 5 days in Heshey Park, plus 2 days in State park in between.

    We usually scout the areas around the CG and see if there are shops, parks, pools, museums, or other atractions that we can visit while camping.

    3 nights is my max. I just don't sleep that great in the pup. And the kids get to bed later than normal, and wake up when dh and I get up early, so they aren't getting enough sleep either. After three nights of everyone not getting enough sleep, I've had enough and I'm ready to go home to our own beds (and seperate bedrooms [:D] )

    our second trip was 4 nights 5 days. It was 100 every day and miserable, But im sure if it was cooler we could stay longer. We dont have any small children, mine are grown now, but with 2 dogs, one is a yappy Chi, its like having children. lol

    So far the longest has been 6 nights. We would love to do longer trips but DH can only take one week at a time.

    Most so far is 8 nights but at some point I'm sure it will be more.

    I couldn't stay more than 4 nights at one spot though. There isonly so much to do in one area without getting bored.

    Were planning 6 nights in October. It's our big annual spare no expense vacation. We started with 3 days and have been gradually increasing it every year.

    Normally we do 2 nights though.

    4 nights has been our max so far.

    My wife is done by then. She has some neck issues that keep her from going more than 3 or 4 nights.

    I could go on and on myself. I actually sleep good on those thin mattresses on plywood.

    22 nights! Our first non-driveway camping with the PU was a cross Canada, cross the US trip to Ontario and back two summers ago. While in Ontario we stayed at three CG's for more than one night, otherwise we were on the go and spent single evenings at too many CG's to mention here. Since then our trips have been 2 or 3 nights although we have a 7 night trip planned for this August.

    Me and my 4 year old twins just did 11 days in our pup at the same spot same campground.. We were at Greenleaf State Park here in Oklahoma and the campground is very family friendly so we were entertained all that time..

    I don't believe taking the pup out for less than 4 nights and I prefer 6 nights or so.. If I am going to do all the work, I at least want to take the time to enjoy it all.
