At only 175lbs, I'd be a little nervous to get up there is there was the possibility of gusty winds. Have you considered adding ballast to the base to stabilize it?

Otherwise it's a great idea, and it looks like it turned out well.

the top part ,the blind itself only weighs 175lbs. the frame is alot heavier. with the wheels all the way to the back,its all tongue weight. i don't think its going to blow over.

Looks like a great idea. I would like to see a few more pictures if you have them. Pulling the blind around a hunting area would be fairly easy (limbs, etc), but on the highway at 50 or soI would think the wind would tear it up. Setting it up as a permanent blind would be a lot easier. Lining it with carpet or something would keep a small sound from sounding like a drum.

pulling it on the highway wouldn't be a very good idea at 16ft tall. i will be mostly useing it on the farm around corn fields ,so limbs won't be a problem.
