NOT, even if I won!

I heard this tale a few weeks back.

An out-of-work engineer with a large family was teetering on the brink of financial disaster. He started praying to God for help by allowing him to win the Powerball. After each drawing, he renewed his prayers, getting more desparate each time.

Finally, God spoke to him and said "Look, fella, you have to meet me half way on this. You can't win if you don't buy a ticket!"

That is what some of the movie stars use on location. I doubt RV parks would allow such a rig, or have room to maneuver if they did.
In a Southern Indiana city a a 53' fifth wheel RV was for sale. I would never buy that length for the above reason. T&T repairables had it and someone has bought it according to the website.

Actually, I'd probably give up RVing and take to boating. I'd go find a Boeing Model 929 Jetfoil. They're 100 ft long, 40 ft beam with two decks. Total cabin floor space is about 3000 square feet.

Twin turbine engines, twin Jacuzzi water jets for propulsion, about 55 knots top speed (have personally witnessed the speed on test).

With that 3000 square feet converted into luxury residential living space and the capability to handle up to 10' seas at 55 knots, that would be a hell of a live-aboard. So you can't go the Zion or the Grand Canyon, but you could rent an RV for that!

All but two of the production total were commercial passenger carriers and most of them ended up serving the Hong Kong to Macao route. One was equipped as a North Sea maritime patrol vessel for the British Royal Navy (HMS Speedy) and the other was built as a luxury yacht for one of the Middle East sheikhdoms.

Boeing gave up on the concept eventually. The competition was much smaller (120 passengers compared to about 400) and cheaper ($2.5M versus about $10M). One of the salesmen compared the job of selling the Jetfoil to the existing operators as trying to sell the 747 to a regional airline with a fleet of Twin Otters.
