I recall seeing something on fish house supply, and roadking outdoors I belive. I am sure there is an option with Ice Castle as well. You could check out the local bank as well for recreactional loans. I would start there.

Delta, I have just sold my perm house on wheels, and plan to do an upgrade this spring. So I have been doing alot of searching and research on the net lately. I have seen a few manufacturers offer financing on they're sites. I also know that our local banks will do a loan for them. I did some checking on that as well.

After looking thru and evaluating it, I'm leaning towards buying a shell and finish the inside myself. The one I just sold was home made from the ground up, and was fun to build. But after crunching all the numbers, cost of a frame, framing materials, siding and roofing, ect.. to go with a shell. Plus, I can use the money I got for my old one on a shell, then invest in it as I can afford it. This eliminated the banks and financing.

If you are thinking of doing it that way, or even starting from scratch, let me know. I have had a lot of experience in the building trades, plus I have done the start to finish thing before.

I am in the middle of getting prices for shells now and hope to make a final descision in the next few days. Again, if I can help, let me know.

I guess I'm not to worried about my credit and stuff after all the different loans that I have had (house,3 car, personal, etc.) But you do make a good point!!! I guess I am just wondering if they finance just to compare rates and terms and stuff.

mjgrose- tell me what you exactly talking about? I'm not looking at buying a used one if that is what you are proposing. Me and my old man would like to build on to are liking or have one custom built, so that we know what we are getting!!

    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.
