cars, and portables...

Recommended Posts

have a 1 man frabill ultra-lite. folds down to 54"Lx30"Wx17"H. I have tried to place it in my trunk yet with the seats folded down but i have a feeling it wont fit. I have a 03 monte carlo.

Just wondering what you guys would suggest for transporting it. Lugage rack?

Would prefer not to put a hitch on my car.

I used to haul my 1 man portable in my Saturn SC1. With both back seats folded down I had room for it. Mine was only 28" wide, but you have a bigger back seat than I did.

I had a Suzuki Swift and I strapped it to the roof. I did not care what it was doing to the car, I wanted to go fishing. I do not know if you would want to do that to a '03 Monte.

Don't quote me on this, but I think they make a bolt on trailer hitch. That way you could take it off after the ice melts grin.gif I don't think they are rated for much weight but should be fine for pulling your portable and gear.

I have an Otter Den that fits about 2/3 the way into the trunk of my '99 Accord Coupe (I know - real practical ice fishing vehicle). Unfortunately, the opening at the front of the trunk where the seats fold down is juuuuuuust a little too small. So, I cruise down the road with my Otter sticking out the back end and the trunk lid creating a lot of drag. smile.gif It actually is better than it sounds because its super easy to get in and out. Only problem is that I have to put the auger in the back seat.

I do have a Yakima roof rack that I've been thinking about trying out. Maybe throw the house up there with a couple of cinch straps and see what happens. The house is pretty light so I _think_ it'd be OK. I just don't want the house and whatever's in it to end up in somebody's windshield.

Itchin' for ice,

Matchman

If you don't mind driving in the cold with your windows slightly down you can always strap it to the roof, using the upper part of the door frame as hooking points.

    • Fork Horn.  Welcome to the forum and thanks for the ice report.   eyeguy 54 title fix. 😊
    • Medicine has some ice in the north shallows, but is mostly open. Rice is 3/4 froze over. Should be making ice tonight with cold temps and calm.
    • LOL,  Don't p i s s Carol off! 
    • I have the Helix 7 Ice and there is no way you could pry that from my hands for a noisy spinning round dial thing. ( I was going to type flasher but I know what types of snarky GIF's would have been posted in reply to that. 
    • I’m glad Lavine is gone! With him on the team, wolves would’ve been in last place last year. He is NOT a winner! Chicago sucked last year! They suck this year! And they’re going to suck next year! I think Jimmy Butler would have stayed if we would have shipped off Wiggins. If anything, this trade should help reduce minutes for KAT and Gibson in a positive way.
    • Well, I’m only about 5 minutes into the next show, and I already know the older Judith will be more annoying than Carl was. Yep, show is back in the pits!
    • I think the trade sucks if they actually had the Heat's offer of Josh Richardson and a 1st round pick plus another player...even Richardson and the first round pick would be better then Saric, Covington, and a 2022 2nd!  Maybe I am off on this (Saric and Covington aren't the worst return) but looking back I wish they had stuck with Lavine, Markinen, and Dunn!  Oh well glad to put this behind us and start the healing process!!  hope Butler brings the 76ers and their "Process" down!! 😂  Go Wolves!!
    • My son was able to gain access by connecting it to his desktop. It required 12v power to drive it. Thanks.
    • UFFDA dats close!!!!!!!!!! we are close to the spring lake store iffin you go that way much!!!!!!
    • Not much to complain about so far, must be why its so quiet in here. From the games I am seeing we don't even look all that great yet but are finding ways to win and Dubs/parise/granlund have been amazing. Will need some depth to kick in to be any kind of real contender, and of course we need to find a way to actually score goals if we make the playoffs, it seems that is always the issue.
