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)

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
