Biggest Pop up shanty
« on: Feb 19, 2019, 12:01 PM »
Looking to upgrade my two-hub Glens Outdoors pop-up to get more space.  I have a small coal heater in there and a filet table with sink, so space is limited to 3-4 guys.  I have researched the Clam XL6000TC and the Clam Escape Ice as the two biggest two-hub and hexagonal pop ups....   What else is out there?  My current double up is about 80 sqft, and the Clam would up that to 112 sqft.  Anyone know of anything bigger????  Is there such a thing as a quad-hub?

the XL6000TC(top insulated only) and the XL6000 Garage(whole house is fully insulated plus the one end opens to drive a snowmobile or atv inside if you want too) are the biggest hubs on the market today. they are a 8' X 14' rectangle shape house and the Escape is a 11.5 foot Hexagon shape house.

I've got the XL6000 Garage. I've used it for a large two person house up to 7 guys fishing in it. Great large house. I like that it is fully insulated and has an oversize storage bag.

Scheels sells a double clam 1660 which im sure had to be the biggest. I've seen one in person and it was way bigger than my XL6000

that is a Scheels exclusive and I don't know if it was made this year. the 1660 houses were replaced with the escape houses.

The Eskimo 6120i is a roomy shack and advertised for 6.  I would say it will comfortably fish 4 adults fishing 2 holes each okay.

We have a 9416i and it is a monster of a shack, heavy and huge. My only gripe is that it needs anchors in the middle of the two long sides regardless of if you anchor the full shack or not.  The two long sides tend to bow in towards each other causing the shack to be narrow and you need to anchor them outwards for the full size.
