    The State parks at the lake here have limited number of reserve spots for RVs...the rest are all first come first serve. You can call and see how many are available but if theres only a few ya better step on the long pedal.

    I've hauled the RV to the lake on a wednesday after work before then come back to work until towing the boat up, just to make sure I had our favorite spot.

    Would sure like to find an affordable old school GMC motorhome with the tandem rear wheels and all the windows....come retirement time I would love to start hitting the college bowl games and make the MLB stadium circuit. Just wish there was a way to tow the boat with one and manage the launch without turning the rv into a houseboat

      Launching a boat with a motorhome is easy! With that huge rear overhang, the back tires don't even get wet.

          Hmmmmm....the boat floats way better imo That would be a nightmare.

          The GMC models from the 70s are front wheel drive powered by 455 Rocket motors. Not rated to tow anything though, but really sweet looking rides.

          The ramps i go to are nowhere near wide enough to sling that setup around to back in.

        Boating and RVing offer completely different joys. They each come with their particular challenges. I love both and do both. If I had to pick between them at my present age I would pick the boat. But I would then miss the joys in RV world.
