Perfect RV take-along: An inflatable kayak

I love kayaking. But with a Class B campervan-style RV, there just isn’t enough storage room to take one along. At least that’s what I thought until I discovered the Sea Eagle inflatable Kayak.

SE330K_DSBFacebook friends on our Roadtreking page alerted me to it and I’m planning to order one before spring. The one I’m looking at is the¬†SeaEagle 330. It weighs just 26 lbs. and packs down small enough to fit in the “basement” of my Roadtrek Sprinter van, the storage space under the bed behind the rear doors. Others claim it can be stored inside, in one of the cabinets. As the video shows, it’s a rugged kayak able to hold two people or 500 lbs and yet easy enough to be carried and paddled by one.

Teri and Ken Jones of California demo it in the above video.

A foot pump inflates it.

The 330 comes with two seats that others have suggested I upgrade for greater comfort.

Since so many places we go to have nice kayak-friendly waterways nearby, I’m thinking that $319 for the deluxe package with the upgraded seats is not a bad investment.

I”ll read you comments here before ordering so if anyone has some suggestions or has had experience with them, I’d love to get them!

    When my husband and I were traveling around the country for a year (if interested, check out our old blog about the trip at
    http://www.thedreamyear.blogspot.com)…we spent most of our time in our Roadtrek 210 popular. We had a bike rack for our two bikes and stowed our Sea Eagle in an outside compartment. It was great to have along. I don’t know anything about the upgraded seats — but certainly would consider it — especially if out for more than an hour or two.

    We took a Sea Eagle along on camping trips for many, many years. They are amazingly durable, easy to transport, and lots of fun to use. Go for it!

    i never got past the planning stages with my desire to get something i could carry around and get out on the water with – i was looking at those fold-a-boat things, but carrying them is a pain. i later found out that they aren’t the most stable thing on the water, so it’s probably best that i eventually ended up with so much other stuff and the boat and bicycles ideas got ditched. oh well – i do see a lot of people kayaking everywhere i travel, though.

    I’m a kayaker – but mostly in inland streams. I’m not familiar with this particular brand, but in small streams and rivers we usually paddle, the skeg recommended in the video becomes a hindrance. We’ve had them along with a Club outing and seen them having to get out and drag over rocks and shallow spots when the rest of us just zipped right on through. If it weren’t for the skeg, they would have been OK, too. It helps for tracking on bigger water, but can be a problem on smaller streams.
