Archaic word used in place of perhaps and maybe, it is the incorrect use of the real word "mayhap". Mayhap originated from the old use of the term "it may hap", hap being old happen in old English.
"Do you want to go with me?"

"Mayhaps, I haven't decided."

Although recent etymology has added "-s" to this word, Mayhap is actually a 16th century term meaning perhaps or perchance. It is actually a derivative of the phrase "may happen" and not a portmanteau of "maybe" and "perhaps".
"I really enjoyed our date. Mayhap I will see you again?"

John has had a cold for nearly a week. Mayhap 'tis time to go to the doctor.

"In 23.2 years mayhaps."
