Using an Advanced Elements Convertible DS Inflatable Kayak in an RV

Kayaking from a different perspective!

We get many questions on kayaks for camping, flying, traveling and RVs. Check out this cool video put together by David and Brenda Bott.  Tired of doing the same thing “day in and day out”, the Botts are now traveling the country in their Tiffin Allegro Bus 45LP RV Coach – in fact, for nearly the past year they have been living full-time on-the-road with their extended family of furry friends.

Of course, as one travels there are many nifty paddling opportunities. Tired of looking for rental kayaks, David and Brenda took the plunge with an Advanced Elements Convertible DS inflatable kayak. The maiden voyage was captured on video using a single GoPro3 with a clamp mount that was moved around the kayak for front and back shots. The aerial portion taken from a Quadcoptor using FPV, First Person Video.


As David said, “I have been flying a UAV for three years … As we travel the country we try to capture video using the UAV and have some wonderful views … we also support the Seg4Vets Foundation which helps our wounded warriors by giving them back mobility via the training and use of a Segway.  The quadcoptor was used at the Alamo to document an award presentation for the veterans.”

They have also chronicled their first Convertible DS set up with video footage which took place inside their RV (lucky for them they have a long one – our little Boler is only 10 feet long!)
