If your trekking by foot, then weight & bulk will be of the utmost consideration in anything you add, build, buy or attach to your Flip.

Didn't think of looking in the auto section of stores. I guess that's another area to spend time in. Will use some of these ideas. Lots of good methods.

Lots of great ideas on here. I am adding some cut up rain gutters to the back to hold my tip ups in, they fit perfectly. I also added some of the 4"pvc to hold extra 1lb propane. I am working on a shelf system that will have cup holder, and rod holder. Making it a little wider to help hold the side of the canvas out away and at least make it feel larger inside. I am hooking up the eye bolts to the front and using pvc pipes to run the pull rope through, I bought a harness system and want the pvc to help separate the lines a little more evenly. Bought some Climbing caribiners on clearance that will attaché to both ends of the ropes. I can easily add or remove it that way. Try to add some photos when I am all set up.

Wavfire06, that's a great set up and makes it easy to see if you're missing anything.

Awesome,  awesome post going here. I'm going to be purchasing a 1 man flip for trips I take alone and don't want to drag my 2 man yukon. Haven't seen any mods to mount a buddy heater/cooker? Basically a sunflower heater with the metal stand. It gets hot and when jumping holes you have to wait a few minutes to put it in your tent to move. Anyone have an idea on how to mount it or hang it so i can move quick and not have to worry about melting anything?

I am not positive this will work but I think that Reflex stuff is made of metal foil. How about lining a bucket with reflex or some other heat resistant material you may know of and then put your warm heater in the bucket for transport purposes?

Good Luck

My heaters burned holes through my reflectix while I was waiting for it to cool off and the wind blew the wall into it. Maybe a metal bucket or a piece of stove pipe?

I have seen, can't find it now, where they mount a piece of wood to the outside of the sled with two hooks on it. You then hang it back there, facing out, while you travel to the next hole.

Finally started getting everything organized in the sled. I will try to post some pictures.


HAWG Outdoor lights are amazing, cheap, and come with everything you need. They are waterproof, come with mounting straps, and are ready to hook up to your battery.


Mounted the tank holder, holds 4 1# tanks.


Shelves are in and fit great. I saw these on here and modified them a bit. Added cup holders and foam for hooks. I used another piece of wood underneath to help support. I also added the center console, and mounted a second battery holder underneath for the lights. Console can hold a battery that will charge my electronics separately.


Shelf for the other side.

Those shelves look good, glad the plans worked out for you!

Was thinking about adding a few layers of the rigid insulation to the bottom of the sled cut to size. Then i would cut out patterns to hold gas tanks, bucket, etc. My question, do i glue it down or should i just lay it in incase water gets under the insulation. I would think if water gets under it could get gross and smell. Thoughts?

Kuenro02    I have a 1/2" foam mat in my gut. Works great for noise and I think it's a bit warmer also. No matter what I do I seam to get snow or water in the bottom and it always gos to the recesses. My shop is heated and everything drys out fast except the water that's under the foam. I have it so I can set everything out and lift the foam out so everything can dry. Works great for me. Good luck

i have a non insulated clam voyager that i was considering putting reflectix in like some have, but didn't like how it looked in the pics on here. looked like it didn't seem to be supple enough to fold with the cover the way i would like it. so i was pondering how or what else to use while in bed just before i got up to go fishing early when it came to me. i was sleeping under my solution! my blanket was just perfect! later in the day when i got back i went to the local stores to look for a blanket that would work. found several at my local family dollar for a total of @ 60 bucks. put them in between the cover and poles, attatched them together and to the poles, using zip ties for now(i know,crude!) to be sewed together later. man was it warm in there and it folds up just how i wanted it to. did add a little wht. but after i get it all sewed up(or rather my wife, as she's the one with the sewing business!) i'll really put it to the  test next season when we hopefully get some really cold weather to make ice! oh, sorry no pics!
