There are hundreds of thousands of houseboat owners in North America alone, but this number is actually quite dwarfed by the millions of adventurers who have sampled the houseboating experience by renting.
You're going to quickly discover-if you haven't already-that water types for this pastime vary widely, from deserts to snow banks and from steep canyon waters to wide-open, island-studded impoundments.
And you'll find them all right here.
Take your time to decide on what vacation will work best for you. Just remember: Demand is high. Once you've decided, consider that it may be six months or even a year before your turn rolls around.
Overall, the decision should be a pleasantly difficult one to make. Good luck and happy houseboating!
