Trailerable Houseboat For Sale


This trailerable houseboat is manufactured by Pipercraft. I found it today on eBay and I have to say I have never really seen anything like this.  It’s awesome!

It raises and collapses with hydraulics which is one of the reasons that make it easy to tow.  It can sleep 4-5 people and has a toilet, shower, refrigerator, stove, generator, and air conditioning.

It can actually be used as both a houseboat and a camper.  Pretty neat all in one.  I guess these MSRP brand new for about $70,000.  If you’re interested in this one, act fast because the auction’s almost over!

It has a 75 HP engine.  The boat itself is 28′ in length and 8′ 6″ in width.  With the trailer it’s 31′ long. Fresh water tank is 65 gallons, black water 33, and grey water 44.  It holds 47 gallons of gas and weighs about 8,000 pounds with the trailer.

While towing it’s 9’7″ high (but remember it hydraulically lifts/collapses).  It even has an outdoor grill in front of the cockpit.  Very unique houseboat!

Have you seen anything else like this before?

    I’d like to buy or build a lightweight trailerable houseboat or a pontoon catamaran, which can carry a mobile home, or a slide on construction which can be used on a pontoon base as well as on a flat-bed road trailer.

    Any contacts and links welcome!

    What are you asking? Location? How old is the motor?

    Hey Chet it’s already been sold. It was on auction in eBay.

    Wow! That’s one of the most unique things I’ve seen in awhile. Is it a boat, a camper or a housboat? Hey, it’s all that! Way cool!

    Unique and really neat. This would be awesome for any who like both camping and sailing! Guess this would mean you are ready for anything, right? Good idea…… wonder if there are any more out there.

      Glad you liked it, Kat. I haven’t really seen many others like this out there but then again I haven’t looked too much. If you find something please share the link here!
