IcePro’s winch axle drops trailer floor onto the ice for drilling and fishing

The IcePro trailer emerges as a novel solution for adventurers seeking to conquer the icy landscapes of North America. This teardrop-inspired trailer, designed for the harshest winter conditions, combines the versatility of a toy hauler with the cozy confines of an ice fishing hut. Engineered to be towed by a chained-tire ATV or to carry one within its confines, the IcePro is a beacon of innovation in a market previously dominated by traditional ice fishing shelters.

Design and construction

Breaking away from the conventional boxy designs of towable ice houses, the IcePro boasts a sleek, glossy fiberglass construction that sets it apart. Its form factor, resembling more a small camping trailer than a typical ice house, measures 17 feet in length and 9.5 feet in height. This design not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also contributes to its functionality, providing 6.8 feet of interior headroom and making it an ideal toy hauler for winter sports enthusiasts.

Unique features for ice fishing

One of the IcePro trailer’s standout features is its innovative cranking-winch adjustable wheel system, which allows the aluminum chassis to lower over a foot directly onto the ice. This mechanism facilitates easy access for drilling through the floor to the ice below, enabling anglers to fish in comfort within the trailer’s heated interior.

The trailer’s construction emphasizes lightweight towing and effective on-ice insulation, thanks to its fiberglass body and molded-plastic interior. Further enhancing its suitability for icy conditions are the insulated acrylic windows and a powerful 25,000-BTU ducted LPG furnace, ensuring a warm environment for fishing activities. The electrical system, complete with a Group 27 12-V battery, 45-A converter, and various lighting options, adds to the trailer’s functionality, making it ready for any adventure.
