Wheels on Fish house?

4 posts in this topic

How do you mount wheels on a fish house? I have looked at fish houses on the lake and they have all kinds of different ways to do it. But what is the cheapest and easyest way to do this.
Thanks LW56003

Well, the best (and road safest) way is to have the frame with the retractable wheel system already on it...before you start building the rest of the house...and then you would have to have some knowledge or experience with engineering it, so it's safe on the highways. Otherwise, you'll have a trailer that sways and wobbles down the highway at certain speeds...very dangerous.

There's a ton of different ways to do it. None of them are as easy as buying one of the trailers. It depends what you have to start with. If you have something with some sort of steel frame and a hitch that's on skids or something it may not be too bad to rig something up. If not it may be easiest to buy one. If you have a steel frame you could buy a stub axle, hub assembly and a piece of pipe. Then weld the pipe under there as an axle and then have the stub axles either welded inside the pipe or have them be removable with a pin. That would be the easiest way.
