Here's my 2011 Starcraft 235fb with a Stromberg/Carlson Trailer Tray and MaxxHaul Bike Rack attached:

And here's the driver's side with my porta-bote attached:


I think I'm kind of getting like The Beverly Hillbillies with the number of things I have hanging off my vehicle!

Hey Dewey.... How do you like the porta-bote? I had been looking at one of those.

We love it.
My wife and I love to fish when we go camping, but we were always stuck fishing from shore because we couldn't haul the travel trailer AND a boat. My nephew told me about porta-bote and it works great.

We have the 12 foot model. It has 3 seats and we keep the seats, transom, and a 40 pound thrust trolling motor in a big canvas duffel that we throw in our pickup bed.

It takes about 15 minutes to set up (and take down). The hull folds to be only about 4 inches thick, so my TT is still legal width with the bote attached.

The hull weighs about 70 pounds and I can handle it myself, but it is easier with two people taking it off the trailer. Some people also mount them underneath their trailer or 5er.

Here's our Autumn Ridge 329BHU. We were at the Leisure Resort campground on the San Marcos River not far from San Marcos, TX last weekend (Aug 4 - 8).
Lots of fun with the kids, grand kids and friends. There were 4 RV's in our group.
