Boat or RV

Unread postby Rookie on Mon Jul 24, 2017 3:17 pm

I have a young family (2 boys under 6) and we have always been a "boating" family.
We love being out on the boat although its only a small one that is quickly getting smaller for us.
The only problem we find other than only being able to take it on the water is that we also dont know any other people that own a boat and also find it hard to meet people while boating. We have now started the idea that maybe buying a camper trailer would be a fun alternative.
As complete newbies to the RV/Trailer scene, has anyone here ever transitioned from being boat owners to RV owners and can convince us to do so? Like i said, we're new to the idea and any input would be appreciated.
Thank you.
Al.

We owned an RV as well as a small boat and we towed the boat behind the RV when we went to the lake for the weekend.
That way you get the best of both worlds, but you will need a motor home instead of a trailer to do that.

Have fun!

Nice rig, but not legal in all provinces or states for that matter.
You would not be allowed on BC roads with that configuration.

Colorado and every adjoining state (plus many more) do, so I'm good. I saw about 20 like mine on the road last weekend - it's the time of the year to go lake camping!

I could tow like that all the way to Florida legally, and may well be doing that next year when we move down that way.
