      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Trailer License for Drop down fish house/camper?

Recommended Posts

Have "never" had to license a fish house on wheels other than shelter type.
If its manufactured as a "fish house" it does not fall into the camper trailer category... I've never seen one licensed or plated ...They are not state registered for title, other than a Insurance company wanting some form of generic title !!

I went through this last year when I purchased my wheel house. If you are going to use it for hunting or camping you will need plates to be legal.

If you are only going to use it for ice fishing, you only need a portable tag attached to it with identification on the house.

I was wondering what most guys get for a license on there shacks with wheels, bunks, windows, and cook stoves in them? My shack that I just built is 6'6" x 12'. It is like 101.5" wide total and less than 17' long. Weight is under 1500 lbs. When I went in to license it I came out with the plate type that I will have to get tabs for every year is this right? If not what can I do to fix it? I want it to be leagal becasue I will be using it for bowhunting on state land during the fall. Please help.

If it's licenced as a fishouse, it doesn't need to be licenced as a trailer. WHY would you wanna licence for both??? If in doubt, check with your county licence bureau, I did.

I checked with both the dnr and the license bureau. The dnr stated to me that if you hauled anything at all in it that it would have to be licensed, even if I was just using it as a ice house.

I then called the license bureau and they stated that if it was only being used as a ice house, a shelter license was all that was needed. They also stated that if I also used it to camp in I would have to license it.

All I get is a shelter license as I only use it for ice fishing.

If you do use it for camping and hunting with only a shelter license, theres a good chance that you will be ticketed.

Ronsay is correct.

Also,
If you use it for hauling other than going from your ice fishing destination and/or back, then it will need to be licensed as well.

Where can one get this license without a bunch of hassle? After spending 2 hours watching old people fail their vision test, and then being handed a stack of documents needing info from manufacturers, I walked out. Ignorance is my plea if pulled over. Might not work in every situation but it's not that great a stretch really.

I must be lucky as I have taken mine and my dads (alot) camping all over for years and never been questioned or ticketed for not being licensed ??
Mine looks like a fish house, but my dads looks like a nice camper trailer and we go to surrounding states camping..

Thanks to all that gave input. I got the plate and that will work out good for what I use this shanty for. i know i could have went a different way and took the chance, but to me it is not worth the risk.

    • I put stainless on my house before I even took it home last year.  It was less than $100 and they installed them.  I also see them advertised on Craigs place for $50.
    • Going on the 3rd year and haven't change mine yet.... that being said it is always rinsed off after being used and sits inside a heated shop
    • DON'T even think about shooting this gun. Leave it as is and hang it on the wall.  Maybe put a little plaque with it identifying it as "Granpa's gun" and the dates of his time on earth. My guess is the gun was fired very few times after he arrived in this country. Hang it up-don't BLOW it up! 
    • I think HSO readers are probably a little more responsible than some owners but I see people changing cable every 2 years, some every year, and some hardly ever. How often do you change cables and are you 1/4, 5/16, or 3/8 cable people. I usually do every 3 years on 5/16 galvanized cable and do the pivots at the same time. I had an old 6x8 skid house I built a trailer for, it was a heavy old pig and never changed them in the 9 years I had it. I will say that if I had both break the same day like someone on here did I would probably do them every other trip! I just have to believe something else was going on there too. I can't even justify the 4-5 times extra price for stainless. I'd like to hear you guys thoughts. I keep the pressure off them at all time except for going up and down. 
    • I was like bken, super simple. Just put in weights and approx value. 
    • I'm telling you we already did. Of course someone of your advanced age may not remember......
    • The trouble would be finding the pinfire shells for it. And then finding someone to take the first shot with it. There are a couple other things that don't function correctly either. One of the hammers doesn't stay cocked. It's a decent looking gun though. I'm very surprised that the stock doesn't have any dings or scratches. 
    • I can see them now. that thing is a beauty love the details on that stock. Would love to carry that through a field and hope for a true double. How awesome would that be with your Grandpa's gun. Then again I would hate to scratch it.  
    • Never thought about that. Then I could just double the offer and know what it's worth.  I can see the pictures? I'll try loading them again to see if they show up
