We have a camper that has only been used 3 times in the last 3 years. we were thinking about selling it and getting a wheeled house. I have been looking and do not like most of the floor plans that are standard. Has anyone built there own? Are you better off building the whole house or buying a striped down model?
Interested to hear from people that have built there own andthe problems you had while building. Was it worth it?
Thanks and have a good Christmas

I built mine from the ground up, frame and all. Toughest part about doing that is getting the trailer geometry right so that it trailers well down the highway and isn't too tounge heavy. There are several companies that build frames and you can do the rest. I think that everybody that has ever built there own fish house would probably say they wished they would of done something different. My best advice is to look at as many different fish house designs as you can to see what you like and dislike.
Funny you mentioned getting rid of your camper. I think my next fish house will be a 18-21' pull behind camper. I would remove the full width axle and replace it with independent drow down torsion axles. So that the fish house can be lowered down just like a drow down fish house. That way it could turn double duty as a camper in the summer also.
Since there is six times as much water as dry land on earth, any fool
can plainly see the good Lord meant for man to fish six times as much as he works.

I also thought about doing that with the camper. Have you seen anyone do this? I know they make them know but I have not looked to see how they work?
Would you have to rip out th whole inside to make the axles fit?
I have been trying to go look at one with Christmas we have just been to busy.
Thanks for your input.
