I was interested in the ice fishing RV trailers suck as ice castle and noticed they have some models with ramps for snowmobiles atvs etc. Being a true fisherman at heart, I was looking at getting a true wilderness do-it-yourself package, (which amazingly I have athority to obtain from my wife) So the first step I was looing at is a true workhorse of snowmobile and finally found the Artcic Bear cat Z1 which seems like a decent pick for what I would use it for as it would not be needed for high speeds. My question is that this snowmobile would fit inside the icehouse, but when you get to the lake, I was wondering if the snowmobile would be able to pull a 16' trailer with single axle across the ice ( slow speeds of course). especially as I see now there are skis that you can drive the wheels of the trailer on and strap down which would help in the floatation on top of the snow of the trailer, and I would think you could always rig a ski on the toungue of the trailer to reduce downforce on the snowmobile for reduced turning ability, but would something like this actually be feasable, I have always seen people pull these with normal trucks, but this seems to defeat the purpose of a "toyhauler" in this application and you are at the mercy of the snow depth at that point. besides with this set up you could be less worried about ice thickness, within reason. and of course it is always easier to lose a snowmobile value wise than a full sized pick up. I thought that and Argo could probably do the job, but then would not fit in the interior of the trailer for transport to the lake, same with a lot of the UTVs on the market now. Any ideas of what is possible with a sled. Looking to have a mobile shack that you can spend a few days in right on the ice instead of having alternate accomodations. especailly when going to Northern Minnesota where these things are becoming more common, popping up on a lot of their big lakes.
thanks in Advance for your ideas
