Trailerable Houseboats- towing a longer houseboat with a big truck
(North Fort Myers, Florida)
Towing a large trailerable towable houseboat.
I saw this houseboat launch off a modified trailer pulled by a Dually truck. I run over to the marina where I am staying and I helped him tie up. Reply - Answer
The owner said he regularly towed it from up north down here to North Fort Myers. Last year he decided to leave it here in storage. It sits on a triple axle trailer and looks to be near 35 feet. I'll check later on the actual length and weight.
Now, I have been reading a lot of the trailerable stories and was wondering why everyone seems to want little houseboats?
Bigger = more comfort and more toys. A dually truck is a reasonable vehicle for towing and with a 4 door cab is quite comfortable driving.
I say, "Don't get a smaller boat, Get a BIGGER truck to tow with".

Well Russell, I can see your point, why go small, when you can go longer, especially with a good sized tow vehicle.
If you find out the weight, let us know in the comments section.Lastly
