Kudos to them if they are using it and on the water. Many nice boats in our marina never leave the dock. What is a trawler is another thread with a million opinions.

Certainly not a trawler but those peeps are having fun. I bet they don't get caught up in singles vs twins, anchor type, or the latest chartplotter.
Someone needs to tell em their doing it all wrong.

Dang.. it even has Sat tv... I prefer to think at the tag along as a mother in law "suite" ... just one pull of the connecting pin away from happiness..

I cannot imagine the docking of a "semi" boat.

Only thing missing is a shooting tower/diving platform with slide.

I can't really tell, but I suppose it could be. I'm just taking my opportunity to yell "Photoshop" cuz everybody suspects me of doing the same, perhaps rightfully so.

I'm with you, LaBomba - it's on the water and being used. Having adventures and making memories. But are the windows slanted or .......

From time to time my imagination drifts toward a pontoon boat with ramped recesses in the deck to receive the wheels of an RV Trailer, so the RV chassis could settle low on the pontoon. One would moor the pontoon square with a solid bank, place a couple of pull-out ramps bridging onto the shore, and load or unload the RV. An Airstream would be nice.

A few decades ago a company in the California Delta rented pontoon boats that you parked your RV on. They strapped the frame rails and axels to the deck and off you went for a week of fun.

I think it's pretty cool. Great for cruising the calm waters of rivers or bayous. Easy to take care of means more time for relaxing and fishing. Like could be good on it.

My old boss and I used to talk about me towing a barge with a couple expensive RVs on it down the ICW every year....maybe the return or crane a couple yachts on it headed north after the RVs were done.

We both wondered....if so many sign up for those RV on a train trips to Mexico...how many would like a couple week trip with a water view?
