I'm reposting trying to get a few answers, so please be patient. I was wondering if anyone either owns or knows about these 2 man portables. They look like the "Trap" 2man. I have a chance to buy one for $150. They are regularly $250. Just wanted to know if it is worth it. Thanks for looking.

I just bought one and they look plenty good for me. The sled might be a little shallow, and it is pretty light (34 pounds, I think) but it seems to be a nice house for the money. I also have a bigger portable and plan on using this as just a one man deal. Might be a little tight for 2 guys of any size. Great for a dad and kid though.
It went together fairly easy and seems to be a breeze to set up and take down, but that was just in the living room, not in the middle of a frozen lake in the dark with a 20 mile an hour breeze.
Time will tell, but I am pretty happy so far.

What are the dimensions of these when they are not in the fishing position?
Thanks,
A

Alphid -
Drop me an email and I will try to measure it tonight and get back to you later tonight. You are basically asking the sled dimentions and the added hight of the folded back canvas, right?

Drop and email with what questions you have at JeremyP71@chartermi.net and I will try to get your answers.
Last I heard St. Cloud was sold out and Mankato had less then 5 left. Not sure about other locations.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
