    Default Can you launch a driftboat at Sportsmans and pick up at Jim's using an RV?

    Wondering whether there is enough room or clearance for that?

    The launch part should be no problem as there is a good ramp at sportsmans. Jims has a bit of a drop off to the water and I would at least go look at it first. Not knowing how long your RV is it might work. Go as far down stream at the ramp as you can and the drop off is less. Good luck!

    Agreed, will take a look first. Wondering if there is sufficient room to turn around a 31 foot RV at Jims though...? Could always winch the boat up to the trailer too if there is sufficient room. Is there parking available for an RV?

    The water is way way down. Does the road whale have 4WD?.

    Not sure on that. I guess I could use a raft and carry it up instead...

    there isparking just beyond the launch that can be used to help backup and turnaround. I have seen some of the samller RV's take out without issue.

    I have seen some RV's rip thier plumbing lines off in low water. Launch is easy....Jims. Drag it up

    The launch and the lake and takeout at sportsmans would work, they both have great ramps and parking. Jim's probably wouldn't be the best idea
