Budgetting South America

Realistically how much money would i need to experience the full experience of travelling south america? If i was looking into going for around 8-12 months visiting as many countries as possible ?
I appreciate replies greatful, aswell as enlightening me on your past experiences if you have participated in similar travels or plan too. :) many thanks.

I spent 6 months in South America (travelled Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Ecuador and Colombia) and budgeted about $1000/month. Camping helps to keep things cheaper (Argentina has some great campsites) ‘working’ (they don’t actually pay you) at hostels is also a great way to not spend much money and meet people :)
