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.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
