Rough average of 7 trips per year. Have some great spots only 30 minutes from home plus the High Country - but recently work gets in the way. Working 8 weekends in a row puts a dent in the 'trip-ability'.  :'(

Not sure how often but I know I have racked up 150 nights in 3 years with the Kimberley Kamper and now 143 nights in the AOR Quantum (almost 3 years). Going to retire next Feb so hopefully will be out and about more often!   :D

We used ours fairly often in the first few months but then it was idle for nearly a year.

From the time we bought our first camper trailer appox. 4 years ago until 2013 we were using our camper trailer every 2 weeks.
Unfortunatly we got away from  it for a bit.
Havent used it since Easter 2013.
But she will be back in use in 2 weeks as we have a trip planned.
Hopefully we will be out and about every couple weeks again after that.

Had our Cameron for 11 months now and managed at least 9 short trips in it so far totaling approx 30 nights.
Have all of August off  :cheers: so should nearly double the nights but only 1 trip.

We bought ours in March and used it twice so far and hoping for at least 2/3 more weekenders at least and maybe a longer trip if possible - so i will vote 4 for now.

Only once so far, but first time ever had a camper.
Be lucky if it will be 3 times a year I reckon, wife not much of a camper.
Plus needs more work to be full finished off to be more useable.

We need a "haven't used it but would like to" - we bought our camper Oct 2012 and spent quite some time getting it up to our standard but having a father in hospital with broken artificial knee for several months, daughter away overseas and other family/work dramas/commitments I am sorry to say that we haven't yet used it yet.

Told my husband that if it wasn't used by this October it will be up for sale.  We are hoping to get going later this year!

Change that 'Hoping' to 'we are going to' and it will happen.
Everyone has to have a plan, we were hoping to spend a month on the road for years, then we made a plan to do it.
Best thing we ever did.
Oh, btw when you do, we want to see pictures  :cheers:

Not often enough. We've had an 18 month hiatus from the camper, so the 3 weeks we've been in it for the myswag red centre trip has been a good change. It was our youngest first camping trip and he appeared to enjoy it digging in the dirt.

Pretty much nearly all our trips with our Swan are "shake down" for our trip to the Cape and Kimberly next year.
Already been to 5 places in the first 6 months of having our new Swan, and a couple more planned before the end of the year.
