Does anybody have experience with this line of fish houses/toy haulers? I am curious as to your likes/dislikes as I am looking at purchasing either an 8x16 or an 8x18 and use it as a year round toy-hauler.

Thanks for any info, I jut want to make the correct decision on a $20k purchase

Posted this same ? earlier this year on I believe the ice fishing forum. Got the same response. I did talk to a couple owners out on the ice but both were last years models. One had the 16 and the other the 18. Both knew each other and the owner of the 18 was much happier with the way the tandem axle towed. I have looked at a few display models and am convinced it is the best shack on the market. Waiting for future hydraulic model to hit the market and will be placing an order for a 20.

Have seen a few of the larger models being towed with the wheels chained in the down position and busted winch cables. Guessing they dropped one side all the way down with the other all the way up.

Thanks for the feedback, I will definetly go with atleast the 18 footer for the tandem axle, I'll have to look into the 20 foot option.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.

      Thanks slowpoke.  I just looked at them again and they're in really good shape actually, it's just that the back boards where the screws attach are weak and some of the screws don't stay in on a couple of them.   Does anyone know of somewhere in the metro (preferably south) that would repair them.  Would a Marine place like Dan's Southside or Valley Motor sports do something like that?
