I bought a Voyager last spring. I can tell you I don't like looking through the thin spots on the fabric. Other then that its been good? Have you considered the Eskimo or the Otter.

Surface Tension: I have Voyager like you. After a few uses I found the small holes/thin spots as you. These were located in the area where canvas covers the support tubes bolt to the tub. I foud that ths was caused by canvas rubbing against the front of my pickup box and the sharp heads of the supplied bolts. MY cure was to replace the supplied bolts with socket head cap screws(cap head on outside of house). You will need an allen wrench but they will not have the sharp edges like the supplied screws. Also I put a 4x4 (2 2X4 nailed togeter will wok also) in the bed of my truck. I slide the house in with the tow rope facing the tailgate of the truck. Make sure that the ends of the house are flipped to the inside, not hanging outside. The 4X4 will contact the front of the pickup box and the flat end of the house tub. Thats why you put the towing/tapered end facing the tailgate. Put you heater, minnow buckets ect. between the house and the tailgate. Hope this help you Voyager owners.

I have a Frabill Triplex. I use it pretty much constantly, hauling it around to the various lakes that we fish in the back of my shortbox pickup. It is quite comfortable, however, I only installed two seats in it. The Arctic Armour fabric does a good job of keeping the light out and the heat in. My experience is limited to Frabill, but several friends have the Eskimo Quickflip II's. They are also a fine shelter, but they do not do the job of keeping the light out. Weight is not a factor with me, as I do not manually drag the shelter. It either rides on the pickup or behind a snowmobile. No matter what brand pleases you, don't leave the retailer's without a cover!!! Nothing is more aggravating than having to clean the snow out of the shelter before putting it up, or forgetting and having a swack of snow go down your back.

Pound for pound, the trap is lighter. If you have to load it yourself you might have to consider this. Add gear and then it's heavier. I have the 2 man trap which I mainly use by myself and I can load it into my truck with the vex, rods, heater, and a few of my catch all by myself without having to empty it. Most shelters have their advantages and disadvantages. Find the one that fits your needs and you will be happy. smile.gif

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      Sounds like a fun day Moose. The weather was just about perfect for the days event.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.
