Normally our Throwback Thursday posts are all about motorhomes, travel trailers or fifth wheels but we are taking the meaning of “recreational vehicle” to new depths. At R&L RV Sales in Hayden, Idaho, our vintage RV is quite a rarity in the RV world. Check out the 1959 Other 17′ Chetek Runabout.1_2699_2085479_47623829

Take your travels to seas with this refinished wooden boat. This awesome treasure even comes with its own boat trailer, giving you one less investment to worry about. Even thouh this boat came out in 1959, there are only 100 miles on this beauty.

For only $4,995, this throwback can be the perfect accessory to your Summer traveling needs. Bring this with your RV on a family camping trip or just head to the lake for a day of fishing. Check out the listing on RVUSA.  For more new and used RVs (and other unique throwbacks) to add to your collection, visit
