Would you rather own a sailboat or a RV?

So here's my dilemma.

I really want to buy a new sailboat. Has been wanting one for a while now. But I also want to get a RV of some kind.

With a sailboat you have a house on water. You could explore islands, remote coasts, lakes, rivers.

But with a RV you could explore the remotest parts of North America. I think RVing is alot cheaper too.

What do you guys think?

If you have to ask you should probably get the RV.

We now have both but use the boat a whole lot more than the RV. Seems like everywhere we wanted to go camping also had water access (except when we head to the Rockies ) so we usually end up taking the boat instead.

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

OK I'll play.

Do you like sailing? If yes one for the boat
Do you like exploring new places on short time frames weekends at a timext One for the rv.
Money? The rv was cheaper for us. We could keep it at home. Turn off the key the money bleeding stops.

We liked the rv but love sailing so sailboat it is.
But if you could keep/want a trailer sailer at home and a rv do both. I have a rv I can borrow and still have our tent and camping gear from our backwoods 4x4 jeep days.

Life is short. Play hard, try it all see what sticks.

Kind of like bringing a knife to a gun fight.

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

khammett,

EASY! Here is a 1-2 punch,

Find a new or used Nor'Sea 27! YOU can trailer it in all 50 states legally! It can (and many have) sailed around the world! We have stayed in ours many times on the way to new cruising grounds. We have friends who were camping in there's at a BIG car race and were interviewed on TV about it.
