Let's see. The world is 70% water?? Learn how to camp out of whatever vehicle you already have and enjoy the best of both worlds!

Was this thread really started in a SAILING forum????

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

It does seem a silly question in a sailing forum, but I bought an RV before I bought my boat thinking that cruising around the country would be just as much fun. I definitely did not use it as often as I am now using my boat. In many ways, RV'ing is similar to living in a marina, but it's a form of travel that's more akin to power boating than sailing. On land, I'd much rather camp in a tent and explore more wild places than tow a trailer. If you really can't decide, my suggestion is to just do both! You'll know soon enough which vessel/vehicle is just sitting there more often than not ;-)

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

This is a completely useless poll.

If you don't already know which is better for you then you shouldn't commit to either.

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

the RV thing has always been attractive to me, but I always go back to how many hotel rooms I can buy with the money an RV costs. I like camping and an RV isn't quite camping. But I have to admit that as I get older my back sure does keep asking for an RV.

Then I began to see and RV more as a travel convenience than a replacement to camping. It sure is nice to be able to pull over and sleep instead of hunting for a hotel room.

I love sailing more, but I honestly believe the wife and kids would prefer the RV.

We have had both. My wife liked the RV better because it didn't "tip".

Saw both of our mothers go through the last two, very bad. Don't have the RV or sailboat any more but am enjoying every day to it's fullest even though I am not on salt water anymore. Just don't take my Smith & Wesson away, I may need it.

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

For me the question is more about motor versus no motor. Sail. No question.
