I love my Otter. The sled they have is about the best you will see on the market.

I wish I could give some feedback, but I did buy the Clam lighting and was not at all impressed with the quality. Now I'm sure it was an isolated incident. mad

I have a Wild 2 man which is similar to the Otter,and I really like it, wish it had a thicker canvas though, like the otter. Worth noting that the weight on the X is... I think around 100 or so LBS, don't know if that is an issue though.

Good luck.

The canvas on the Team Wild is lighter than on some other Otter houses but I have experienced no problems with it, do either of you two care to elaborate on what you don't like about it?

FYI to all, the Wild series is more of an "entry" level house, it does not have all the bells as whistles of the other Otter houses, but for the price you will not find a better flip over house on the market.

Don't compare an Otter with a Team Wild house. Both good units but they are in 2 different leagues.

Yes the X2 will fit tightly.

A good roomy 2 man house is the Otter Lodge. The cabin is doable bit tight. I like the extra room for fishing as well as the head room. I would go with a Lodge in either Camo or Ice Blue. Great houses and the best tubs in the market.

I also would suggest looking at the Sportsmans Caddy if ya get one. Awesome storage unit with spots for beverages, baits and all you need on a trip.

The new seating allows you to tilt the seats to store stuff in the tub easier.

Sure, my only issues are the canvas is real light. When its really cold you may have a lot of water dripping, I did, probably the case with most, but I felt it was in large part due to the thinner fabric.

Also I did not care for the bench seat and got rid of it and used 2 chairs that were in a Wild Wilderness series from a few years back that I found on another fishig forum. This made it reallly light about say 60LBS with gear.

Should be noted that for about 300 bucks, its tough to find something as nice though. As someone else has said they are in 2 different leagues.

I don't think it'll fit, just run a strap across the sled so it holds the canvas down,or buy a travel cover. IMO not having the tonneau cover over the house isn't that big of a deal. Am I wrong or do most houses not fit under a tonneau cover?

My Otter Lodge fits under the Access cover on my 06 F-150 6.5 ft box with at least 1/2" to spare. I have hyfax on it which adds a little to the height. But I do have to take the seats off. I feel pretty secure leaving it in there all winter with the tailgate locked and the cover over it.

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.  
    • Inaugural concert attendance (estimated):   Obama 2009: 400,000 Trump 2017: 10,000   Also Trump nodded off because it was so great.
    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
