Hey guys looking for the best RTR electric for the money. I want a boat to store in the RV for fun while travelling.

Really depends on where you plan to run the boat and how fast you want to go.
Each person has different opinions on what is the best boat.
There are certainly a bunch of great options out there.
Price also comes into play what is your budget?

If you are not looking for a lot of speed, the AquaCraft P-27 Gunslinger is a great running fun boat.   Runs on 3S packs.

Pro Boat River Jet. No rudders or props to worry about. Self-Righting. Sweet looking. 23", so easy to pack.

For hydro I'd skip the aquacraft. And check out that new Proboat Ul-19. Videos look very nice.
