Default Houseboat Camping at RV Park?



Advertise Here

Long been considering an RV, pull behind or 5th wheel. Also contemplate triple towing from time to time (65' overall length in Texas) to bring along a boat. Then I really get out there and daydream about a small houseboat, or camping pontoon with all facilities. Have any of you campers ever seen a houseboat pulled into a standard land based RV campground and used for land based camping? Other than the crazy looks you would get climbing a ladder up to the door, leveling seems like the main concern. Would be nice to be able to choose land or water, well, settle for land when water is not available. Dumb idea not worthy of further consideration?

I have camped in a boat several times sitting on a trailer. There were no hookups but it was quite comfortable. Sailboats with a cabin and berths.

There are a few houseboat/caravan (trailer) that are made and sold in Australia. They do exactly what you are talking about. If they were for sale here I would have one. The two that I can think of off the top of my head are called Boat a home and Caraboat. You can find videos of them on youtube.

I prefer a truck camper and then I can legally tow (in any state) either a boat, my Jeep, or a cargo trailer, as the situation warrants.

Maybe an outdated idea but I thought it was bad for the boat to spend time in/on it out of the water.

If the trailer fits the boat, it is not that hard on boats. They spend most of their useful lives on a trailer.
