      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 for camping supplies and hauling a small boat

Recommended Posts

We recently purchased a Truck Camper that we are looking forward to using this season. We would also like to purchase an enclosed trailer that we can pull behind our Truck that can be used to store all of the miscellaneous camping, fishing or hunting equipment that we might need on a trip. We would also like to be able to mount a 14 ft. fishing boat on a rack on the trailer roof. Would prefer that the height of the trailer be only about five feet so that two people can easily load the boat on top of the trailer. Instead of the trailer consisting of one totally open area like most of the enclosed trailers are that I have seen, we would like the trailer to have several side doors that can be opened to access several compartments in the trailer.

Is anybody aware of a company that manufacturers trailers something like this or a company that might be able to build one as a special order? The enclosed trailers I have seen are normally too high for what we would like to use it for.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

How about a used pickup service body. Many of them already have rack on top that would work perfect for a boat. They have nice doors and pull out trays.

Google Remackel Trailers in Forest Lake and check out what Dennis builds.

I got a 4'x8'x2' utility trailer from him and love it. I added a rack for the canoe, but it would work great for a small boat too. I was actually thinking the other that, if I got a little Jon boat or something, I wouldn't need to get a trailer.

Use it for utility, camping, ATV, snowmobile...everything I need. Some of the best $$ I've ever spent. This thing will last for a long, long time. It doesn't have separate compartments, but you could talk to him about that - He does custom stuff.

He's excellent at what he does and is extremely cool to work with.

Hope this helps.

Used to see them all the time years ago. Pretty standard enclosed box type trailer with a boat flipped over and hauled on top. Some of the better ones used rollers (probably from an old wringer wash machine) on the back edge to roll the boat on. Wouldn't be too hard to make.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will follow-up with the Forest Lake dealer and also check further into some type of pickup service body that could be mounted on a trailer. I appreciate your assistance.

    • I have to stop procrastinating, ice will be here before I know it! I made a little progress lately, I painted the inside, installed cedar accessory boards and thermostat and hopefully by this weekend have the rubber flooring down. I also ordered the termination cap for the furnace, should be seeing that in the next week or so. I also have a custom cushion being built to fit my bench seating. Got a question on rattle reels, I am looking at the all aluminum ultimate  rattle reels. Anybody use them? They seem a little spendy but not too concerned about the price, looking to see if there are any reviews out there. If those don’t seem to fit your need, what other brands have u used and feedback on them would be nice also. I will take some pics this weekend for a quick update.  
    • Sport's Show is a great place. I purchased the grey Frabil for under $200.00 But that was 5 years ago
    • You mean like Chicago is doing with Hossa?  Great idea...think of the space that would clear up!
    • Six of us shot 10 on public land Saturday near Worthington.  Good day until the wind really kicked up at the end of the day.
    • I have trail camp pics of some yearlings sparring.

    • Parise Update:    Zach Parise, battling an undisclosed injury, was in a red jersey and skating on a line with Joel Eriksson Ekand Eric Staal. The goal for the past several days was for him to make his season debut this weekend. But early in practice, Parise left the ice and did not return. "I talked briefly with Chuck, but he said it was a setback. I don't know how much of a setback or anything," Boudreau said. "I know I talked to him before practice and he felt great. That's why he was in a red color and was ready to go. The next thing I know, somebody told me he went off. I don't know why he went off. Obviously, something didn't feel right."   My feelings is that he needs to be put on the LTIL and get 100%.
