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.

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.

If you are in a rush then use toll roads, if not......then do your own thing......its what your motorhome is for.
Break 'new' ground find that secret little aire feel special as you are the only one to use your own route.
