it ways a ton. Kind of hoping to lighten it up. I was going back and fourth with 6x8 and 8x8 because of the weight. How heavy would you say it is.

I have a 6X8 about 20yrs old. I am pretty sure when I bought it they told me it was around 100lbs. By the way the house is almost in as good as shape as the day I bought it, Canvas Craft puts out a very high quality product.

Thanks guys cant weight to pick it up. I checked the web site and it says the 8x8 is 145 pounds to me its worth wrestling for beingcomfortable and having warm feet. I dont move around much.

All ready have some good ideas to move it around thanks to the ideas of jim43 and jimalm. Time to get the welder going and fire up the stove in the garage.

I have an old 6x8 also. Been out in it at 20 below with some awful winds. A great house. Just getting too heavy as I get older. I made a cradle for mine and put some old water skis under it. I can leave some of the covers off the holes when it's folded up and put 5 gal buckets in them when I'm pulling it. Still looks like new.

Overnighters are in the picture. I bought the kit and assembled it myself tonight in the basement. Bp was right it ways a ton I wonder if I should have used cdx plywood instead of treated could have saved a third of weight. It was warmer in the ice house than the basement room. Now I got to figure how I'm going to get out of the basement, didnt think that one through to well. blushlaugh

    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
    • What? This can't be. Aaron's the real car building brains of this show. Richard is just the clown. Together they made it work. Apart?
    • It's catch-22.   The point is that there is no point.
