Re: Would you rather own a sailboat or a RV?


A lot of RV'rs will stay in Wal Mart parkign lots, some areas this is allowed, other not. Some in AZ will overwinter in actual sites, the overnight cost goes down some. I've stayed in rest area's, truck stops etc overnight also. Federal forests are free many times also, depending upon the where you stay etc.

This also depends upon the how setup you are just like a boat. If you have a genset, solar or equal, you can stay in one place for a bit before using up the battery bank. Many of the items in RV's are similar if not the same as on boats.

You can go to forums like, and a few others to get how some will do things on the cheap in there $500K type A MH with every liveable option one needs, including washer dryers, marble.......Just like boats, there are entry, mid level upper level costs, livaboard, semi liveaboard, weekend to day use designs of RV's. All have different levels of niceties if one will on board. ALong with how much tankages, niceties, etc.


She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
