How many road miles have you put on your trailer?
Out of the 20 months I have had my trailer it has been idle about 14 months.(winter storage) 6 months of real use about 3000 miles.

I've put on about 5,000 miles. But, I have only owned it for 6 weeks. I hope to double that soon.

Way to go Jim!

Bought last July, So from July thru Oct last year we did close to 8000 mile.............. Just getting started this year, due to the very wet spring we have had so we have only put about 30 miles on it and that was to the place to get the bearings packed so it doesn't count. Next week will be our first outing.

I can only guess... maybe slightly less than 20,000 miles since I Bought the Fiber Stream 5 years ago. I'm getting ready to add another 5,000 miles next month.

July of 2006 we put 1600 on it bringing it home from Rice. We use it for work and drive a lot up and down the west coast. Clocking the miles, we have over 60,000 miles in almost 3 years on two sets of tires, two batteries, two holding tanks(not the trailers fault) and still going strong. It sure needs a bath but is holding up really remarkably well.

Boy, that's a tough question.
We bought a 10 year old trailer and have towed it around for 15 years, so far. It's been coast to coast through Canada, Ontario to Edmonton a few times, and across the northern States and down/up through the North East US States. It's on it's second axle and has a new paint job to clean up the outside and a refurbished interior so that it can last for a bunch more years. I guess that we'll have to count wear and tear more than miles. Have never counted the distance, just the memories.

We bought our Dolphin in June 1995 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We have pulled it all over Western Canada, to Kenora Ontario, and all across Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana and into Washington State. We spent a lot of time over the last two years replacing the fold down dinette with a full mattress and modifying for use by the two of us. Our boys are both grown and each have bought their own trailers. Although not fiberglass as yet. Four short trips so far this year and about ten more planned. Fourteen years of fun!
