need advice on buying 28' land n sea

Thinking of taking the big plunge..from kayaks to a houseboat..guess i am getting old and tired plus i finally got married at 60... so you know the rest...
and ..no mate ..bob is not my uncle. (a ritch guy in australia) my immediate concern is pulling it ..it appears to have 3 wheels and a surge or elect brake system. Would i be nuts (well i am nuts) ...would it be possible to tow it with my 01 grand cherokee ..even a short distance? Or what would be the minimum in a tow vehicle. Also what could you tell me about the engine's from this picture. Fire away..much appreciated!!!

how do you post a picture?

You might want to contact jeffnick on TrawlerForum.com - he's quite pleased with his 28 Land n Sea.

He's towed it as far as S Carolina to Lake Powell. Here's a blog link.

I'd guess towing with a Grand Cherokee would be dangerous at best, unless extremely short distance w no hills and very little traffic. Maybe a 3/4 ton pickup or SUV minimum.
