This RV Cruises Waterways as well as Highways

First Water RV

You often see them, those huge, 30 foot RVs towing a motorboat behind them as they’re off for a vacation of boating. It’s quite a convoy. But what if you could leave the boat at home and still enjoy a cruise on the waterways as well as the highways? Well, now it’s possible. The C.A.M.I.L.C Terra Wind is the world’s first luxury amphibious motorcoach. At a stock length of 42’6” and 8 feet 6 inches wide, the Terra Wind RV is designed around a marine grade fiberglass hull of plywood reinforced fiberglass and marine grade structural members. There’s also a retractible deck for lounging, fishing, swimming and diving.

The Terra Wind is powered by a Caterpillar 3126E turbocharged engine which can also power it’s two 19″ bronze propellers with stainless rudders. To make the transition from terra to aqua, you simply place the auto transmission into neutral and shift the marine transmission into gear. And suddenly, you have a houseboat. Top speed is 85 miles an hour on land and up to 7 knots on the water. And with room slides in the out position, they can become outrigger pontoons to keep the boat level in as much as a 3 foot wave or wake. She is designed solely for travel on lakes, bays, rivers, and sounds and is not designed to be an ocean going vessel.

Aqua RV Interior

Standard equipment includes 42″ plasma HDTV with an In Motion satellite with Direct TV for on the road entertainment, complete kitchen with marble floor trash compactor and a combination washer/dryer.

Prices start from the $850,000 upwards.

Ed: Hopefully there are enough life jackets on this bad boy :P

If you can afford the $850,000 price tag, I assume it wouldn’t matter…But, How many miles to the gallon of gas does this baby get???

If I had $850,000 or more like 1,000,000 after tax and getting the features that don’t come standard why would I get this instead of having a helicopter to fly me to my boat or a private jet for a half million more
