Will a Otter Lodge if in a Chevy Truck

8 posts in this topic

I have seen this question on the forum before but I couldn't find it today. I know that the house will fit but my question is that with a Access Cover on a full size silverado (6 1/2' bed) will an otter magnum lodge fit under the cover. I am pretty sure it will but I was woundering if any of you had experience with this. Do they fit and leave room to cover it up.

My Otter Resort fits in my Ford Ranger (with the tailgate down). The sled and house barely fit under my tonneau cover, so I would think that the Lodge will fit in a full size truck with no problems...

Believe it or not, the Otter Magnum Lodge fits in the back of my 94 S-10 Blazer. I just prop the slanted end up on the back edge of my front seats and I'm off to the lake. Not too uncomfortable either. So I know it would fit in the back of a full size Chev with a cover.

Ok here is an idea, lets avoid the guess work. Go to the Otter site, they have the dimensions on there.

Take those dimensions, and go measure your truck bed and and height to the inside of your cover. You will soon know the answer!

My ottter medium sled just squeezes under my cover, not sure how much deeper this one is though.

I just checked, the site says they are 18" high, so if I recall correctly that should fit just fine, because it isn't any taller than my otter medium which fits under my Truxedo cover, and these covers are just about identical.

So your answer is YES!

I have the Otter Magnum AND the Access Cover on my short box Ford. Yes, the Magnum fits under the cover and with the tailgate closed.

I am sure it will, I fit the Cabin (medium sled) in my S-10 and I dont have much room but it works with the tailgate up. I know this may not be of much help but I had the same question when I bought my Otter. The guy at Cabelas actually let me take the Medium sled out of the store and put it in my truck to make sure it fit before I bought it.

The Otter magnum will fit in the 6 1/2 bed of the truck. I have the same set-up and the tailgate just touches the frame of the fishhouse. Of course if you have the hitch assy on the house you need to remove it. I'm not sure if it will fit under you tonneau cover or not, I'm sure it will be close.

Alright thanks to all of you for your responses. I glad to know that it will fit. I would have hated buy one and have it not fit. Thanks again

    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
    • Would you use a bobber on your rattle reel with these? I would think a lively minnow would pull the line out of the contacts.
    • My my, how the mighty have fallen...  I went back to the thread on the cook subsidy, and what did I find in the second post from you, on the second page....     Gee, you were ok with the 66 million because it wasn't a stadium or something, but now all butt hurt over 7 million of Indiana money?    Now that there is a funny joke.
