Recommended Posts

Big_Cahuna

I heard that Minnesota laws were fixing to change with regards to how heavy a wheeled ice house can be. I've looked around but didnt find a thing. Can anyone shine some light on this subject? Thats alls I'm saying.

Does anyone have an idea what a 6.5' x 14' weighs?? It has double doors in the back and oven/furnace with cabinets on the v-front. Thanks

Thanks BW. I saw a spike in wheelers getting sold on [YouNeedAuthorization] and wondered if something besides the economy might have been the cause. Several bigger houses. Cheaper too.

I talked to the DNR a few weeks back and asked them the same question. The officer I talked to litterally said it can be as big as you can make it, both in weight and dimensions. He did say there are restrictions if your driving it up and down the highway though. Not sure what those might be.

The largest single trailer (fishhouse) you can legally tow down the road without a special permit is 13 1/2 feet high, 45 feet long, and 8 1/2 feet wide.

169.80 Subd. 2. Outside width.(a) The total outside width of a vehicle exclusive of rearview mirrors or load securement devices which are not an integral part of the vehicle and not exceeding three inches on each side, or the load may not exceed 102 inches except that the outside width of a vehicle owned by a political subdivision and used exclusively for the purpose of handling sewage sludge from sewage treatment facilities to farm fields or disposal sites

169.81 Subdivision 1.Height.(a) Except as provided in paragraph (B), no vehicle unladen or with load shall exceed a height of 13 feet six inches.

© Statewide, no single trailer may have an overall length exceeding 45 feet, including the tow bar assembly but exclusive of rear bumpers that do not increase the overall length by more than six inches.

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.

      I got the Polluted From my own observation.  The North Branch of the Sunrise River, At least the part that Runs though The town of  North Branch, Isn't the healthiest.  I Walked by the river in a small park. The River was full of peoples Trash.  Like Washer Machines  and trash bags. People Trash Either ran into the river, or People just dump their trash their.

      I don’t know who told you the sunrise river is polluted. Aside from a little bit of run off and algae blooms, the river is quite clean. The lower river is a popular summer float tubing spot. Come duck season, it will seem like the whole east metro is packed into Carlos Avery.
