Any newcomers in the wheelhouse business at the Ice show in St. Paul?

In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.

 

Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.   

 

Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.

Sorry...was wrong on the specs.

 

Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.
