I need help with a decision

Recommended Posts

I just pulled the trigger on a new X2. I am debating what to do with my Yukon. I bought the X2 because it is put together better for 4 wheeler usage. I am thinking about keeping th yukon as a spare. It is all set up with led lighting, hyfax, and an onboard, mounted battery with switches. My garage is kind of getting full of fishing gear, boat, X2, and I have an 8x8 suitcase porty also. I guess the main issue I have now is if I try to sell it now, I will take it in the shorts. If I store it all summer, then I will figure a system to get it out of the way. What should I do?

I personally would wait until next year to unload the Yukon. I'd rig up a pully system using the 8 x 8 as a base, put the Yukon on top of it and hoist them both to the rafters.

Yah, that is a tough one. "Space Management " is a very important activity. I would suggest trying to sell it for what you want right now, there is still a LOT of good fishing left this season, like Perch on Mille Lacs and Walleyes on LOTW. I bet you could sell it here in the forsale forum in a heartbeat, tho. If you can't sell it, then I would ask a friend with a little space left over to store it for me for a case of beer. smile.gif Overall, though, I think you will use the new one all the time, even if you keep the old one - transfer your setup to the new one and don't look back! Another idea -> build a double-decker storage shelf out of 2x3's and OSB, if you had to store it, that'd be pretty cheep.

I have a pulley system for the 8x8, but I am concerned that the extra weight of another house might be too much for my garage rafters(they are kind of old ~85years)

This is sure a predicament your in lad and sounds similar to a man with a wife and also a mistress and getting the ultimatum by both that he must choose one or the other . Take the one with the least mileage on her as she will keep you interested longer . LOL wink.gif

during the summer, you can can store the X2, the Yukon, and the suitcase shanty in the trailer

Well, the decicion has been made. The Yukon and the 8x8 are going down the road. I found out I actually have 2 8x8s, and a 5x6 also. Within the next couple of days I will list everything I have, and clean house. I guess the reason for the big sale is the better half said I can pull the trigger on a tandem axel wheel house in the summer. The one stipulation is it has to be big enough for her and the 3 kids.
