I've looked at them as well and they seem to be a great shelter for the price. They are a great option if you don't have something to haul a flip over style house or a way to pull it around on the ice. Once you get some snow on the lakes a flip over style house can be a bear to pull by yourself without an wheeler or snowmobile.

I have heard from alot of people who have bought the quickfish 3 and they have all had great things to say. They all say the ice anchors are great and you really only need one on the windy side of the house to hold it down, and if there is enough snow to bank the house you shouldn't need the anchor at all.

The fabirc looks good and sturdy as does the whole house in general.

The quickfish 3 is the house that I am looking toward getting when i am in the market for something.

I own a green QFIII that is five years old. I like it alot. It is heavy and Sucks to pull by your self with more than a couple inches of snow. Suckes just as much pulling when your buddy puts his stuff in there and you both pull it. I was thinking of screwing a pair of crosscountry skies to the bottom. The fabric is good, I have yet to put a hole in it. Need to be careful when folding down, the fabric gets caught up in pole mounting bracket. If you have the extra money you should get the cover for pulling behind machines. It is a mess when you get any amount of snow in there. Fishing three people is hard, two is great if you want four holes. I think the best feature is the velcrow windows. This is my first year I will have to replace one and it couldn't be any easier. Most stores don't carry them on hand so you have to order them. Hope this helps!

Sometimes the country store in cumberland wisconsin has great deals on eskimo houses. I got mine with some stitching defects for about half price. The defects haven't mattered a bit and saved me a bunch of money.. You can contact them and buy from the store or else check it out on E-bay at.. The country store-Ebay


Actually they have a few refurbished Quickfish 3's starting at $99
