At 145 lbs,I would have a hard time lifting it into the van 

That's what I thought but I can get it into my pickup and or onto my trailer quite easily fully loaded. I just pull it up by the tow bar by hand.

The heaviness of an Otter makes it well built but also requires a machine to pull it.

I just saw a rapala two man flip at Cabelas today in Barrie.
$549.00 I believe.
Looks alright,, a split bench inside.
Decent fishing space & only weighs 80 lbs. (according to the box)

My one man recon flip weighs in at 40lbs,,, which is great IMO.

3 man pop up is still much lighter and compact

On sale for 299 get it while it lasts(in stock in Barrie):

I have the one man, also got on sale for $299 so the two man is a great price. I'm very happy with mine.

There is no way I"d pull my Otter Lodge by hand. Not gonna happen.

Pulls real nice behind the sled though. Real nice. And its the warmest hut ive ever been in that wasn't hard sides.

My buddy has the cabin, and I wouldn't want to drag it by hand either.
