Agreed as Lucy2 says.

No toll roads and if you get lost or make a mistake it will bring you back on track again with no hassle.

. . . 4 hours 49minutes - what motorhome can go that speed to match that time ?

. . from experience you'll be lucky to do 100 mile in 4 hours without a stop
100 miles in 4 hours ? 25 miles an hour ? Slooooooow.
Nah not slow . . even at 45/50mph you'll be lucky to do more than 35 miles - and if [like me] you enjoy just poodling along I'm happy.
-after all its not a boy racer vehicle . . or is it ??

It is reality, not slow.

Even if you spend hours on Autoroutes doing 80mph. You wil be lucky if your average speed clocks 60. As soon as you, slow to wait for other cars to move in, stop at Tolls, Service areas, slowing for bends, traffic or roadworks, etc. Your average speed starts to fall.

If you are meandering around coast roads or in-between towns on Fast N roads. Your average speed can be a lot lower than you think, in reality.

Also bear in mind, you are probably only covering 72-75 miles an hour when your speedo is showing 80.
I have just had a rolling road test on one of my cars at VOSA and the Speedo was showing 70 mph but the vehicle was only doing 58mph.
