Investing in a recreational vehicle is a big decision. Do you go with a camper that will help you explore the reaches of our beautiful country?

Or do you go with a boat to enjoy all that the open water has to offer?

In the case of the Sealander, a camper than transforms into a yacht, you don’t have to decide — you get both.

This ingenious contraption hits the road connected to a trailer hitch, like a regular camper, and then operates like a flat-bottomed boat with an outboard motor on water.

While the Sealander is not the most spacious yacht or camper on the market, the company says that it fits up to six adults.

You can configure the space as benches for hosting or as a bed for sleeping.

You can upgrade the basic design to include such amenities as cooking and washing stations, and audio setup.

There’s also the option to add a toilet to the cockpit storage locker to convert it to a bathroom.

Each Sealander is custom-built at the factory in Germany, and you can choose your own interior finishes as well as exterior colors.

So how much will the Sealander set you back? The basic model starts at around $17,000 and takes about eight weeks to build.

Here’s The Most American Road Trip You Can Take

There is so much to see in the United States, it can be pretty overwhelming.  From the National Parks to the big cities, there is something for just about everyone.

One really cool way to see the country would be to visit each state’s capital city and its capitol building.  And that’s exactly what the man who brought us the best road trip ever, Randy Olson, has done. This time it’s the most efficient way to visit all the state capitals.

The trip is 13,310 miles, hits all 48 state capitals in the contiguous United States and takes a total of 8.5 days to complete.

Olsen, a researcher at University of Pennsylvania, created the trip using the same algorithm that helped him created his other fantastic road trip ideas for the U.S. and Europe. And he’s made his tool available for anyone to use so you can plan your own custom trip.

To learn more about the road trip go to Olsen’s website.

 

JetBlue Offered Its Passengers On A Flight A Free Trip…If They Could All Agree On The Destination

Forget the debate the country is having over presidential candidates.  The real argument is over Costa Rica vs. Turks and Caicos.

In a fun social experiment (and promotion), JetBlue made a surprise announcement on a recent flight.  They told all the passengers that if they could unanimously agree on a vacation destination, they would all get a free flight to that location.

Watch the video above to see how it ended.

Hopefully, our politicians could learn a thing or two from this group of travellers.
