Smile Porta-Bote/Getting On The Water


Does anyone have a Porta-Bote mounted on their RV? I am trying to find the best way to have a 'portable boat' with out pulling one behind my RV. What do you have and how do you store it?

In advance, thanks for ideas you might have or ways you get out on the water while RV'ing.

Mich, I've looked at the Porta-Bote mounting, but my slide includes the refrigerator, so it won't fit there. Wondering if there are any alternate boats or alternate ways to carry
on the 'Mother Ship'.

Thanks for replying!

There are quality inflatable boats out there, with or without sectional wood or metal floors. Probably a better "boat" than a porta bote.
Many years ago when I towed a travel trailer I had an 11'6" hard bottom (fiberglass) inflatable with a 30HP outboard. Both fit in my TV van.
When I switched to a motor home, I bough a trailer for the inflatable, but after a short time with that set up, I decided if I was going to tow a boat, I might as well tow a "real" boat and bought an 18' center console.
