Zack Shack?

Is a Zack Shack house worth the money? They seem kinda spendy for the size?

I have been looking for a fish house that is very easy to set up and can be used for a decoy or ATV trailer. Anybody out there have a zack shack? What do ya think about it? Was it worth the money?

I don't have a Zack Shack but a similar dual purpose type from Prairie Truck in Minot. It is 6x12 w/double doors in back as well as side door. I like mine and use it to haul stuff in summer as well as ice fishing. Only complaint is its low to the ground when wheels are down so it doesn't have alot of clearnce. Mabye I'll see if I can find 15" tires to raise it up alittle. I havent pulled it on the ice with a 4 wheeler but it pulls easy moving it around the yard with 4 wheeler or garden tractor.

I do not have a shack either, but can atone for their workmaship. I have a dock and deer blind from them. Both were more expensive then competitors but were no comparison quality wise. I know with certainty that I will be money ahead in the long run.

Hunt,
I have a Zack that I bought used last year. The big question is how many do you plan on having in the house. We have fished with 3 in the house, little tight. Stayed last Sat. night in mine, plenty warm given the outside temp. Pulls easy with a 400 4 wheeler. I feel that it was worth the used price. Would I buy one new? I don't know.

Joe,

Oh it would only be one or two most times. More just as a base camp when it's really cold. I have a portable right now but when she's this cold I'd like to have something warmer. I really like the fact that you can haul an ATV inside and also use it for decoys or whatever.

How old was the one you bought? Price you paid if you don't mind? Is it as easy to raise and lower as the video makes it look?

i used to build the zack shack for zachmier and they are well biult and very easy to set up and i can move one faster then you can move a portable with the drop hitch they have you dont even need to unhook it from your truck or atv just pull the pins on the wheels and lower it when you want to move just raise the bars on the tires lock your hitch pin in and drive away

Hunt,
The one I bought was 3 yrs old. Used less than 1/2 dozen times. I paid 3500. Priced one new with same options would have run me about 6000. I fit my wheeler in no problem, but the guy I bought it from had a 700 polaris with bigger tires, wouldn't fit. i use it just as you would, base camp. Raises and lowers no problem by myself.

A friend of mine boughta z shack and it is so one handed easy to set up. one man operation. easy to heat 9000 btu is to much even on a cold day. The thing pulls good until you have a wind head. front should be changed so that it is more aerodynmic, the cost is steep for what you get.
