Recreational kayaker since 1996 and now looking for a folding boat option since taking up RVing. Found this forum at the Folbot Fb page. Hoping to find a Folbot but might need to look at other options since that company is no longer in business. OH well.

Welcome Lyn, lots of options in the folder category. Folbot is still not out of the question, but support will be non existent through the defunct company but there are many people here who can give advice. Otherwise there are lots of Kleppers on the used market, and there is growing interest in the Oru folder. Stay away from Wayland, they have a very bad track record in every way you might imagine. Good luck, let us know if we can help!

If you really want a Folbot, there are still a couple on Amazon and, of course, eBay has one occasionally.
Otherwise you can look at Packboats for a good, low cost kayak.
And keep your eyes on the For Sale section here.
