I Love microskiff.com!
I drove a 48’ Prevost for several years and that trailer is not too difficult to backup. It’s the short trailers that are hard - Can’t see them in your mirrors until they are turning out from behind the bus. This guy has an awesome setup IMO.I want to see him back that thing into a parking space
I see that kinda setup all over the west, not allowed in FloridaNot sure which laws apply in which states, but I see a lot of pickups towing 5ers with boat behind the 5er. I realize you're in a motorhome, so you might check this out - this is how I moved my car and my quad from Blythe, CA to Santa Fe, NM in 2009:

I know it's not legal in CA, but I gritted my teeth and sweated for the couple of miles I was in CA. I went past state and city cops in AZ and NM for 600 miles and didn't get stopped, tho' several of them watched me go by. Saved me a trip.
Get rid of that anchor mess if you wanna catch something decent in our area. Way too much noise. If you don't want a power pole, just get a stick it pin. You need a trolling motor or a push pole to get into your fishing spot. If you run your engine, TOO MUCH NOISE.Your comments have been very helpful, particularly these about AL boats appropriateness in SW FL. Also the low tides in the winter. I did skim over some skinny flats last March in Matlacha last March. So my thinking is evolving which makes me feel a bit like a flake. My Pathfinder has almost everything one would want, low hours on the motor and boat, Minn Kota Terrova, Solex 12 and even MEGA 360. A friend has even offered to tow it down for basically his travel cost, and with the hordes of snowbirds here in MI pretty sure that can happen. So for this winter at least, I believe using my Pathfinder down there is best.
The one thing yet to consider is the anchor. The one I have (see image) is pretty loud, as commented by a fishing friend, and also a bit of a hassle for long runs. How important is having a power pole? And how long of one around Everglades City and Pine Island? With a Power Pole I would take the wench off.
