We used to have a 20' pontoon boat and loved it other then it wasn't set up to be able to sleep overnight. We used to pull a tarp over the bimini top and sleep but a lot of extra work.


So we started looking for small houseboats. Not too many around that caught our eye. We found a L'il Hobo and bought it. Redid the upholstery and tuned and cleaned it up a bit. We just put it out in the water a week ago.

Sitting out on the calm water enjoying your dinner, and then retiring to a warm place to sleep. Getting up in the morning, have a wash, and enjoy the beauty around you, catch a couple of fish before breakfast.

It doesn't get much better then that. Now that's what I call living. It is so easy to maneuver around and with an 80 hp Yamaha 4 stroke you can barely hear it running, and very good on fuel.

We would never sell it. So if you're thinking about buying one go for it.

I can understand what you mean, there's nothing better than being out on a boat, any day is a great day out fishing.

The advantages of trailerable houseboats are that they can be pulled out just about anywhere, and are great for couples who want to explore. Glad to hear that you're enjoying her.

New Hoboist
by: Toocanooz

Agree with all the other comments and had to add my 2 cents worth of experience.

My Hobo is a 1995 model she weighs in at 7200 pounds ready to hit the water. Tongue weight is "Heavy" and will be an important factor for anyone choosing a puller unit for a Hobo.

I started with a full ton 360 c.i. Dodge 15 passenger van with the seats removed that I previously used to pull my bass boat around. However, we quickly realized a Hobo ain't no bass boat and replaced the van with a Dodge 3500 dually with the Cummins diesel.

The truck pulls the Hobo as effortlessly as the van pulled the little boat. It's very stable and sure footed going down the road especially in strong crosswinds when you usually have less than a foot of unoccupied space in your lane.

I attribute much of the stability to the fact that we rebuilt the trailer with brand new electric brakes on all 4 wheels and in addition rebuilt the truck brakes at the same time.

In addition, the set back axles mean you have to give some consideration to how you negotiate it around parking lots and at 13 ft. 2 inches to the top of the A/C unit you need to pay attention to your route and do a little planning ahead to avoid low railroad underpasses and the like.

Overall, like most of the other commenters we love Toocanooz and would never sell her unless (or until) we have a new one custom built someday.

We also enjoy our 12x35. It is super stable, lots of room to move around and share space with guests.

The only downside is we would like to use the boat other places and of course it is too big to trailer.

We are located at Doctor's Lake Marina in Orange Park.

Hope to see you and your boat in the future.

30' Lil Hobo trailerable houseboat
by: She&I

We also bought a used Lil Hobo that needed a lot of fixing up and 3 months later it was done. We are like you, will never sell it now as it is perfect for us.

We are not stuck on one lake and get to see many more places. It is perfect for two. We retire in two months and can't wait to get going.

What do they weigh? Can I tow one with a V8 half ton Toyota Tundra which can pull 10,400 lbs
