Hauling Fish House

6 posts in this topic

I probably won't know the answer to this until I try it for myself but I'm just wondering what you guys think. We built an 8x10 fish house on wheels and want to road trip with it up to red lake. The frame was welded together by the blacksmith place in alexandria. He said go as fast as you want with the frame. We drove 75 all the way home on the freeway. Now with the house built on the frame, how fast can I expect to travel. We used aluminum studs and tin siding. The roof is tin also. The house is bolted down to the frame very well. Does anyone have a similar setup that they travel around with? What speed is normal and is distance a factor? I'm really clueless about this subject. Thanks!

unless the wheels retract into the inside of the house, the fish house iss too wide to be road legal. 102" max is legal. If you are over I would stay off the freeways and take it easy (55)

I don't own a house with retractable wheels. I have seen many houses with the wheels on the outside being bowed out due to excessive weight and traveling. I wouldn't think it would be very inteligent to just take it road tripping all over the state every weekend. Am I right?

Don't worry about that Bigguns. My buddy plans on keeping it up on Red for the winter. I don't plan on pulling this thing around too much. I am just wondering if anybody has gone this far and what speed they held. We did keep the house weight under the weight the welder told us too, so the wheels should be alright. I will have to measure the total width. I know the actual width of the house is about 7'8 thats 92" so depending on the wheels it will be pretty **** close. Actually probably a little over. Thanks for the info fishtrap and bigguns. It's appreciated.

Hey where did you get the alum. studs from? I am in the planning stages to build one for next year.I found a place that builds trailers with tires on the inside of the frame allowing to go to a full eight feet. 8x10 frame 15 1500.00- kind of spendy. What did you pay for yours. How much does your house way????? Thanks

    • Whatever happened to reinhardt1?  He caught a lot of heat down here because he was so enthralled with Michelle Bachmann, but when he left Sillytown, he moved to the cooking thread, and he was very knowledgeable about cutting and preparing meat, since he was a butcher by trade.  I never spent much time in the cooking forum, but I would read reinhardt's posts occasionally.   I didn't mind Lmitout, but I've been frequenting these forums since the wild & wooly days - back when Jackpine Rob & the crew was on here.  Lmitout was pretty tame in comparison to some of those guys...   One who comes to mind went by the handle "Mariner Magnum"...                
    • Fun time at the river
    • There you go again, calling names.   "senile elders"  "brainwashed baby boomers"   "need the blue pill"     Are you serious dude?   And you wonder why folks don't take your alternative chiropractic talk seriously? 
    • some are still here, just not as busy posting.
    • The administration I referred to was not the Obama administration.  Don't edit me when quoting.  It was the HSO administration. 
    • Like I said I pop in from time to time , not like before. I do remember you rundrave stepping in and commenting on all the babble when the cooking thread crashed, you think that was the only babbling going on here? Hey, your a mod and we're just trying to cool things down, I get that.  In my opinion it came down to the cooking thread was dominating the rest and some didn't like it.  But if you want an answer on politics ,you don't have to look hard..
    • Rage, ok, thats funny. More so making light of rebels transparency regarding not being able to handle differing opinions and allowing his homeboys to throw out as much smack talk as me, only i come a little harder and sensative people struggle with their emotions.  Hence deleting a post with no rules breaking.     This whole post was a story, made up to start something. Nice troll work OP, i knew it a long time ago but played along cause it was fun but now its just a bunch of senile elders or brainwasher baby boomers that cant exchange without feeling like they were talked down to. So soft and zero passion for anything worthwhile, thats why you all need the blue pill.    
    •   Well shistter,  I had to WiKi the curry wurst so it looks like a real deal!   Currywurst (German pronunciation: [ˈkœʁiˌvʊʁst][1]) is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage (German: Bratwurst) typically cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste, itself topped with curry powder, or a ready-made ketchup seasoned with curry and other spices. The dish is often served with French fries.
