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)

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
