Who else builds Retractable Trailerable Houseboats?
Nomad builds this low profile, retractable, trailerable houseboat.
I found these Nomad retractable trailerable houseboats, but was hoping that there might exist another manufacturer of a retractable collapsible house boats. If anyone knows of such, I would really appreciate it.
I don't think the wife will go for 40k for the Nomad, and hopefully there is another make of the similar concept. Now, the need for the retractable model is not the trailerable feature, it's that to get to my dock, I have a bridge/culvert to pass thru and a conventional houseboat won't go thru.
It's about 5-6 feet above the waterline to get thru and since the top lowers, I would be able to get thru. With my pontoon boat, I just lower the bimini top and I can travel to the bay. Hopefully, there exists another make to look at. Thanks, Mark

Well Mark, thanks for your post about the retractable houseboat from Nomad. It's an interesting design, when you consider that you can lift and drop the cabin portion. And from the photo, people can see that it's a very trailerable houseboat model also.
As to other house boat manufacturers that make small trailerable houseboats, you could look at the Adventure Crafts, and the Travelwave360, to see what models they have or make.
I think the feature that is rare to find is the collapsible cabin/structure. You may very well have to convince your wife to "up the budget", so to say. :)
Lastly, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their collapsible, retractable, trailerable houseboat experiences. Feel free to use the "Click here to post comments." link found near the bottom of this page.
