    On Pates Pond here in the Panhandle, there is a PUP mounted on a pontoon boat, this one is turned sideways and the beds are over the sides, it is a neat looking outfit and seems to work great, he has a porch (the front of the boat) with a canvass top , and I have seen him out fishing at night , then when finished he climbs in the PUP and goes to bed.

    I would definitely have to limit my adult beverage consumption if I were going to spend a weekend in that camper!!

    But how do you haul bikes and will my 2001 Alumacraft Crappie Deluxe with a 15 HP two-stroke tow it if I add a transmission cooler?

    Very Very carefully and the brakes should be no problem on the downhill, something will stop you :)

    If I get close to the GVW, do I add some barrels and call it good?

    Owning a 2006 Flagstaff Pop up 625D . Tires see to fail to often
    They are 1350 lb cap. Should I increase wheel wells and go to 14 imchers and more capacity weight

    How do you winterize? Removing all of the water could be "challenging".
