Gas costs add up VERY quickly if you actually want to go anywhere in an RV. RV's that I looked at generally got between 6-10 mpg's.

There are already too many people cruising. Go with the RV.

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? Sheesh.

(sailboat in case you couldn't figger it out)

Although I have to second the Nor'sea. Friend of mine and her new hubby just drove something like 16000 miles around the country towing his 23' boat. Slept in the boat just like a camper. Called it BOATERHOMING!

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

Personally I'll go with the sailboat 'till I'm too old to get the anchor up by hand. Then I'd go RV. But it'll have an anchor tied on the front of that RV. Every campground I stop at, I'll get out, throw that anchor 4 to 6 feet in front and give the hand signals to the "first mate" to back up to set the anchor. Anyone around that indicates understanding of what just happened is who I'll have a drink with that night!

I have both, and use each according to the season, and in moderation based on finances.

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

We do both. Take the RV north in the summer to cooler weather to escape the Texas heat. Spend time on the boat in the fall, winter and spring. I would love to have the boat on the Great Lakes in the summer and the RV in a park nearby. The admiral cannot climb the ladder to get in the boat when it is on the trailer so traveling with only the boat is not possible. The boat is not big enough to spend more than a week in, not enough storage space for food & clothes. I would sell the house, RV, other toys and current boat to get a bigger boat to live on and cruse.

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

Ive been cruising now 5 years and theres a lot of places a boat can't go.

I am looking at RV'ing in North America (Alaska right down to Panama) and Europe, and later back in Australia.

So at some stage I will lay the boat up for a season and hit the roads.

But it wont be a big RV. A camper van is smaller, can be neatly fitted out, better chance of parking on streets etc.

The photo below shows the type of vehicle I have alread done about 22,000 kms (14,000 miles) in the USA about 10 years ago. Very economical - 2 litre engine and fully set up.

I travel to go placees. Sailing is a means to get there and accomodation. So is a camper van /RV

I use my RV to finance my sailing.
