And has been worth every penny to me. My RV is a place to eat and sleep, the boat is central to my hobby.

At best an RV is a collection of compromises with wheels.

At best a boat is a bunch of compromises that float.

Combined the result does not do anything well except suck up money.


A house is also a bunch of compromises too.
- It sucks up a lot of money for property taxes every year in addition to maintenance.
- Try hooking it up to pull to the local state park or drop it in the lake at the nearest boat launch and come back and tell us how it goes.

Whens the last time you seen a house not appreciate in value ?? Whens the the last time you seen an RV or boat NOT start depreciating the minute you buy it.

This would just be like a dual sport motorcycle. It is capable of doing both but not great at either.
