I have the Eskimo quick flip II deluxe with the bench seat. The back of the seat folds down and should fit in his truck fine. I have a Dodge Dakota Qaud Cab and it fits with a soft cover. If you have a full size bed you will have no problem

The Eskimo bench seat folds down in all models. It shouldn't be a problem for you.

In case anyone hasn't noticed, the Eskimo line of Fish Houses has been improved over last years models.

I'm impressed.

Northlander, you would absolutely love the Eskimo QuickFlip III. Plenty of room and head room too.

Rick, I was impressed with the Eskimo Quick Flip 3 also, for the money I think it is very nice. Do you know anybody who has a Eskimo? How are they liking them?, went to the show today (Sun.) and nobody had any left.---Thanks for your help.

My quickflip 2 deluxe fits in the back of my Jeep Cherokee so it can easily fit in a truck. Probobly even a short box.

Web, I like the new Eskimo so far. However it has not yet been field tested. The only concern I am going to have is protability. The unit is a bit heavier with the bench seat installed. Hopefully for early ice we don't get alot of snow and then later in the season I can just drive to the spots.

The III fits perfectly in the bed of my F-150 which is short bed. It is slightly heavier, making it a little tougher for one guy to move it in and out of the truck , but the amount of space inside is unbelievable. I'm a little over 6-1" and can almost stand straight up. They also offer a tow bar so once the ice is a little thicker, I'll be pulling it with my sled. I wouldn't see a problem stacking one on another of you needed to carry 2 in the back. As Rick mentions, the bench folds down for transporting.

I just got a Quickflip 3 and put a hitch on it. Used it at LOW this weekend and it pulled great. It's very roomy and at 78" high, I wanted something I could stand up in. For the price its a great house. We were in Canada on the Red River with 30mph gusts and had no problems keeping it warm and it didn't shake a whole bunch, I'm very happy with it.

My cousin picked up the QuikFlip II before we headed up to LOTW this past weekend. It performed flawlessly. Even with the wind howling like it was, it took about 2 minutes with the sunflower on high to warm it up enough for me to drop the Carharts and take care of business. Now, if I'd only remembered to bring out toilet paper. Where's a Vikings hat when you need one. HeHeHe

I fished out of my Fishtrap all weekend, so I can't tell you how the Eskimo fishes. Oh, and did I mention that we slaughtered the Walters and Snaugers?

Farve for President? Does he ice fish? I suppose if he did he'd have a Quickflip. Good to hear the news on the Eskimo stuff I bought the Barracuda auger 2 years ago and my buddies thought I was crazy...they're always using my Barracuda now...

I just got a Quickflip III as well. Looking to hit some early ice but noticed the unit is a bit on the heavy side so portability may be an issue. Have to get a hitch so my 3 wheeler can pull it.
Gonna put it together today after work and try out some metro ice this weekend can't wait. Having a family fish fry on New Year's so I'd better get fishing.

Well, after reading all this, I decided that I had to have a Quick Flip II. My wife, the woman who spends my paycheck, didn't think it was a good idea. I finally talked her into joining me inside to see what she thought. When the door was zipped and the windows closed, she thought it was cozy. Well, we started snuggling and fooling around and making a bit of noise. The up side is that she thinks its a good fish house. the down side is that we are permanently banned from Fleet Farm.

Yo Bob!

As a fellow QF3 owner, I can not describe how impressed I am and how hard I laughed.

icehousebob, good story. I had mine set up downstairs and the wife decided to join me in my cozy new shack. I will not continue the story from her as this forum is dedicated to the topic of fishing...

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
