How does the 8' wide fishhouse handle on the road?

4 posts in this topic

Just curious as to what you think about the 8' wide fishhouse on wheels (I know these aren't on the outside of the house)? It seems the extra space would be ideal! Anybody have any problems moving them up or down, driving down the road, etc.?

Thanks,

I've had mine for 3 seasons now, its the 8x16 Ultra Shack in the for sale forum. It trailers great! There is some planning to go into the layout in terms of tongue weight.

My recommendation, keep the tongue weight low so that you can pull it with an ATV, but leave room for packing gear on the tongue so you can add the extra weight while on the road.

If your interested in taking a look at mine I welcome you to stop out any time.

That sounds like a very well built house if you can pull it with your ATV! I saw the pics of your house, SWEET! Might have to take you up on looking at your house sometime. Thanks for the info Grabs!

with a 8 ft. house the wheels are inside so others can not take the house. that is getting to be more of a problem these days. i have had these kind of houses for 25 years, they sure are nice to have.

    • I gave up trying to watch it. I think the guys dog filmed it with a Go-pro strapped to his head. 
    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
