Even full timers take a break from RV'ing occasionally. This 1972 model 55' houseboat will be my home for the next week cruising on the Tennessee River.
approx 35,000 pounds (steel hull)
14' wide (no permits are required on the river)
powered by one 115 hp Yamaha 4 stroke outboard motor
cruising speed 7 mph
75 gallons fuel capacity (it gets approx 2 miles/gallon)
200 gallons fresh water capacity
Approved marine sanitation system
one full size home style refrigerator/freezer
6 gallon electric only water heater (with the lake we don't take many showers)
DirecTV HD (only when tied up at a dock)
32" flat screen TV
one additional refrigerator on the front deck
3 200 psi air horns on the roof (sounds like a locomotive)
two 6.5kw generators (a backup is always nice)
And for the weight police (oops wrong forum) I do not plan on towing this behind my GMC 2500HD.
