Sno Pro ice shacks, anybody tried one
« on: Sep 04, 2010, 04:55 AM »
Cripes, I spend enough money on everything else, I am now considering a Sno Pro ice shack.  I am interesting in maybe
the 6x10 size, as I feel my SkiDoo Expedition or Griz will pull it.  Anyone tried one of these and what do you think?

Last fall I bought an 8x12 sno pro   its a great shack!   price I payed I couldnt build a cheap storage shed for the cost  as it hasnt hit the ice yet....   as I worried about getting it off    prob last year would have been a great year to have it out! I have considered (thought about it cant quite do it) cutting it in 1/2   8x6 easier to handle (for me)

There is a Trailer / Dock company in Meredith NH. They had some on display, real nice looking, But $ 1400.00 for a 4' x 8' didn't seem like a price I'd want to cough up !  :o

Well, I know I will have to pay around 2k or better for what I want.  I have a 4x6 that I built and it will still be used, but
I want something else with a little more comfort and roominess for the lake I fish most.  I am getting a little
older and it seems that everything I have to lift weighs more than it did last year.  I am exploring the idea.  I like the look
of both of those shacks, but need probably a 6x10 or 8x12.  I think the 8x12 may be a little overkill.

That one we have is a 5x8.  It is retail at $2500.  It is VERY VERY light and has a sled/wheeler hitch on it!!  I can fully load it and push it on hard ice with one finger.  It also heats VERY easy!!!  We LOVE IT!!!  It's our new portable shack!

Unfortunately I saw one at Indian Hill last spring as the ice fishing season was ending.  I believe it was around $16oo, but
I didn't jump at the time.  Kinda regretting it now.  The next time I see a good buy on one I want, I will.

I got the 6x10 snopro that i insulated and put 1/4 inch luan on the walls and also built a dinette in the front. A very nice investment!!!! ;D ;D

I agree that the 6x10 would be sweet.  We think of an ice shack costing over a grand being excessive, but we all blow
tons of money on other crap that won't last half as long as a comfortable, easy to handle shack.  That seems to be the
one I am most interested in as I can move it easily on my snowmobile trailer.  If anyone knows, where are the Snopro
ice shacks made in Maine.  I would like to go there and see some of them, and decide if I want to take the plunge.  I
realize I have to go through a dealer to get one, but would like to have the shack built somewhat my way.  I have
ideas, about the windows, etc.

I got it, Winslow the main office.  Every time I would click on it over the weekend, it would not come up... I will have to
call around and see where they have one I am interested in, then go and look.  Thanks..
