Waiting at a traffic light in Yuma AZ yesterday, I spotted the above pontoon boat converted into a small houseboat. I had seriously considered this approach instead of buying a used TT or converting a cargo trailer before I started out, and it’s extra-nice to see that someone persevered and got an especially nice one done. And the trailer has a nice, wide stance. Awesome! It probably sits a bit low in the water unless there’s a third pontoon at center, but feast your eyes on an RV that’s truly recreational!
I like it! I wonder how that would work putting down the Mississippi ….
Oh yeah! I’m thinking a trolling motor and a couple of solar panels would also allow access to those many small lakes where motor restrictions are in place. Just idle on out there, drop anchor and “set up camp”. The Mighty Mississip’, quiet lakes, or dry land. Adaptability can be a handy thing.
A trolling motor & solar panels is a really fine idea! I’d put solar on it anyway…
I love it! And I don’t do boats since a bad canoe accident left me full of fear.
I get that. I wouldn’t want to make a wrong turn out the back door of something like this, but it is neat. Makes desert camping seem unadventurous!
I’ve entertained the idea of living on a houseboat.
And it is an interesting idea at that! Not practical for me personally, but it has its alluring points.
