Looking forward to many years of comfy camping...
Yes, RVs and boats can be similar while being different. Boondocking in remote locations or being anchored out around deserted islands means no one is around to assist you. You have to be pretty self reliant. We are usually other places in the summer, but we are in South Florida on our boat getting some maintenance items done. Instead of our usual anchoring out we are tied to the umbilical chord to run the air conditioning 24/7. The sun is brutal down here. We enjoy both, but boats take much more maintenance.
