The Boaterhome is based on the Ford Econoline van. It was lengthened to 11 m, and a third axle and a special rear platform were added. An 8.5-meter boat is loaded onto it, and it becomes a kind of continuation of the motor home, because its cabin is connected to the Ford living compartment. The boat is lowered into the water with a winch.
