Anyone have a Clam 6800, I am leaning towards buying that one.

Had one til this season.  What do you want to know?  Comment - it is not a "sled" - very tough to tow.  I always loaded it and everything else on a trailer and towed it behind my wheeler - not a very portable outfit for moving around the ice.
It is/was an excellent shelter and my kids loved it - warm, with the floor an all.  I just decided to change my "style" of fishing a bit this year.

I have one and like it.  It has alot of room.  It's easy to set up and take down.  We fish three guys out of it pretty regularly and never have a problem.  Although it is heavy, I can load it in my truck by myself.  It's also hard to pull by hand.  I'm thinking about mounting some detachable skis to it so I can move it easier.  Hope this helps.

The 6800 does indeed have a lot of space, but pulling around in the ice with any sort of snow can be a bit tough. The new pop-up style Clam's are a great choice if you're looking to house several people and still stay somewhat mobile. You can throw any size (Hub, Base Camp or Command Post) in the backseat of a car and away you go. You can also lay one in a sled and toss the rest of your gear in there and have no problems pulling it around through the snow.

I've taken a Command Post with me on guide trips and have just thrown it inside the tub of my Thermal X and onto the lake we went. Had enough gear (along with the Command Post) loaded in the sled of the Thermal to adequately house an eight-person guide trip... tough to beat when looking to add more people and keep everyone comfortable...

The pop-up style Clam's have created an inexpensive option that offers a lot...
