    Living in a RV ?

    Live by myself. Been thinking of selling my house and buying a class A. mount my Harley on the back and tow my bass boat.
    Has anybody done it?

    I had 2 class A's, pulled a jeep and a bass boat, no problems at all.

    The only issue I can see is that every time you want to fish you have to move your House (RV) to launch the boat

    Go check out some RVs. Last time I went to a show I found fifth wheels to have a much more livable layout than the big bus chassis Class As. As least at that show. But, then you'd have to tow the boat behind the RV and thats a whole 'nother discussion. And, no idea where you'd put the Harley unless it was a toy box model fifth wheel.

    I think it sounds cool short term but the problem is that would be a permanent thing in your case. I used to live in my T@b for a month straight. Eventually, I just got tired of it.

    the problem with a large class a is the boat ramps. some have to much angle and the coach gets high sided.had to put in a couple of class a guys at the ramp. just know that if are going to fish a lot and are sold on a class a look at a better built trailer as the other guy said you and your boat, bike, and toad are ready to go. good luck. the guy that lived in for a month then got tried of it must have had not given it enough of a chance i have been living in my class c for the last four years and love everyday. fish where i want go where i want.

    Aside from the problem of turning an appreciating asset into depreciating asset(s), it sounds like a hell of a lot of fun.

    Consider a Park Model. Most are just under 400 square feet. Much cheaper than an RV but you lose the mobility of an RV.

    They are quite comfortable and can keep your own vehicle for towing your boat. Especially nice when parked near your favorite water.

    I would think that a fifth wheel and truck would serve better than a class a.

    Another option would be to use a 8' bed 3/4 or 1 ton truck to tow a travel trailer. You could put the cycle in the bed. Air bags on the rear axle would be needed.

    Some of the new high line travel trailers are comparable to fifth wheels--but with a conventional bumper mounted equalizer hitch with sway bars.
