pulling a wheelhouse?

4 posts in this topic

Hi I have a couple questions Im planning on buying my 1st wheelhouse within the next year or 2. I was thinking about going with a 8x16, I really want a big enough house that will have a nice size cooking/stove/oven/counter space. I dont want to buy a smaller house and then in the next couple years want/have to buy a bigger one, I have a kid and a wife that need space.

My last question is Ok I was wondering what you guys thought about my 2002 dodge dokota v8 4x4 pulling a 8x16 wheel house? Am I going to have to go buy a bigger truck to be able to pull the size of wheel house I want? Thanks Dustin

ps I cant wait for ice fishing season

Should be fine pulling the house down the road. It will be on the lake where you might have a little trouble with traction. May be a good idea to have a set of tire chains in case you get in a situation.

I bought an 8x18 a few years ago and I wish I would have gone smaller, believe it or not. The issue for me is the weight. Due to the last couple winters being not so good for ice making (slush and late freezeover) it has really limited my use of the wheelhouse. What you choose for counter space you sacrifice in fishing space (floor space for holes)
