hey scoot i own last years model, It is very heavy about 120 pounds. Has two meatle runner bars that all the seats are attached too. The new model is a bit better. Has a new seat system that the seats are removable. They got rid of the steel bars. Still heavy about 105 pounds. I like the black fabrick and has plenty windows. Triplex would need the tow bar,and a cover. Good for a guy that dose not mind the weight. Or who has a 4 wheeler, or a snowmobille for early ice. I was thinking about selling mine it is way too heavy for one guy to handle. Your looking at about 500 for the triplex about 60 for a cover, and i think the tow bar is like 150. I might sell mine for about 325 keep in mind it is different than the new model also no cover or tow bar

I also have last years tri-plex and I pulled it with a four-wheeler and no cover and it worked fine. Just need a long rope so the snow doesnt get thrown into the sled. The hitch seems like a waste of money to me. Me and my 6 year old son only used it so I had no problem handling it myself. Also I think this years model doesnt seem as good as mine. The new seats come off to easy- would blow out of a pick-up easily and just seems to be made lighter which is not always a good thing. Just my 2 cents though

I've had one for two years and love it. I took the middle seat out and moved the the other two to their inside position and have tons of room. I can load and unload by myself but rarely go fishing alone. Black canvas is tough and really warms up nice in the sun. I would buy it over again.

    • Never heard of the stuff.  English Muffin....Toasting Bread?  I was wondering if you really made French toast with round English muffins? 😵

    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around. 
    • I did a search ans it seems a shortage happens once in a while. That search came from 2013 and it was the same problem. Hope it just a temporary thing because it makes such great toast.
