Sno-Pro or Mission Ice Shack
« on: Nov 04, 2018, 09:49 AM »
Does anyone own a Sno-Pro or Mission Ice Shack?

And if so, what size and how do you heat it...in addition, is it better to insulate them or leave them uninsulated due to potential condensation issues?   Ie.   Too air tight...

Thanks in Advance

I do not own one, although I have owned quite a few and do currently own an Alcom product. I've seen those Mission Ice shacks and drooled over them when I picked up my EZ Hauler at Scotts recreation in Augusta. All I can add is that when I put a heater in my un-insulated trailer it condenses quite a bit. I would insulate for sure and also add a roof vent.

I don't own one either but if you have the coin to purchase one I would think you can afford to insulate it. Derby up here raffles one off every year and I believe they put spray foam insulation and cover it with cedar paneling. It gets so damn cold up here I couldn't imagine trying to heat something that's not insulated. IMO insulation would cut down on most condensation issues. The other would be to heat with a wood stove rather than propane cause propane will cause condensation while burning wood will dry everything in your shack.
It must be something in the water.

You might want to look into a vented propane heater .

Thanks Folks...

The consensus from everyone iíve chatted with is to insulate and utilize a vented propane heater...

The folks at alcom offer this at about a $3k option...  needless to say iíll pass.

Iíd certainly be curious if anyone is heating these with a wood stove...  there ainít nothing like a fire and a few brewskis on the ice.

I have an 8 X 12 Sport Shack. I insulated it with 1 inch foam board and covered with Luan plywood. I heat it with a small woodstove and it will make you sweat most of the time.
