Have a fish house you can be proud of; a sweet Camper Conversion

34 posts in this topic

Have a fish house you can be proud of!

Be the proud owner of a one of a kind camper and fish house. Save yourself the work and most importantly the cost that comes with designing and building the ideal fish house. My unique design removes the need to remove tires or mess with pins and dangerous levers. This shack features a box containing the 6 holes which drops tight to the ice with only the turn of a crank; picture a sunken living room which raises and lowers. Simply pull onto the ice, drop the box, and drill your holes. In addition, you will no longer need to look down a tunnel to see your bobbers; the box sits only 5 inches off the ice.

This unique fish house is built from a 16 x 7.5 foot dual axle camper, featuring 6 holes (with covers), 30,000 BTU wall furnace, 3 bunks, LED lights, 12 volt ceiling fan, and 2 solar panels (capable of recharging a deep cycle battery in 12 hours). The completely remodeled interior features fully insulated ceiling, floor, and walls finished in white paneling. As an added bonus, I have designed a weight transfer skid which allows this shack to be towed with an ATV. Call me at 651.324.4021, Price $2800.

30,000 BTU wall furnace

SO if it understand correctly, it is like a camper with a pop-out side except that it pops down instead?

That's kind-of neet. laugh.gif

Hooks,

Your exactly right. When describing the fishing area I use two comparisons; 1) imagine a camper slide-out going from the bottom of the camper to the ground or 2)a sunken living room which raises and lowers. Simply, four turns of the crank and you are either up for travel or down for fishing.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.

      I dont think you will have trouble. Just be careful. There are a million trucks driving all over the place now

      Big Pine as of 1/15 had 16" of ice on the north side.  Only drilled 5 holes and all were around 16" according to my ice scoop.  Just placed fish house out there for the nephew and called it good.  Sorry no fishing report.
