My advise is for full thermal if you can swing it. I have a full thermal lodge and it rocks. I have had it out at -40 and could heat it with a single burner mr heater, in fact it ran on low once the house got warmed up initiallly.

Alright alright, no need to twist my arm! Just out of curiosity does anyone know if otter was selling them for a decent price at the ice show last year? I'm up by duluth, but would be willing to drive down there if it was going to be worth the drive.

Not to hijack the thread but this could be a mute point as Otter is suppose to be bringing out new houses this year including a new lightweight one man called the hideout supposedly and all new fabric and also a line of hub houses. This is what I heard from a different site, so we will have to wait and see. But yes in my opinion if you can swing the full thermal fabric go for it and you will not be disappointed.

Thanks for the heads up gilligan. I'd like to see what they come up with for a hub house. I've been slowly looking more and more at them.

I was at an ice show in st Paul two years ago and asked an otter rep why they didn't have hub houses. He simply replied by saying until there's a fool-proof and incredibly durable pole design, that there wasn't money in them.

This new hub house news has me STOKED! !!!!!!!!

Hopefully they have a stellar anchor system also if the rumors are true.

We had a 650 cabin and 1200 cabin last winter. Our trip to devils was conveniently the coldest week of last winter and with both shelters side by side most of the week we sold the 650 after that trip to get another 1200, the condensation was nuts. Sounds like you may have decided but another vote for 1200 will only make you look forward to what you're buying more

Once again thanks for all the comments! The last 4 or 5 years I've been doing an annual trip to LOTW with a bunch of buddies, and after these past couple seasons (averages around 20 below) I'm definitely ready to have a full thermal house!
