We were really surprised at how sturdy this rack is! We now have storage room to stow our chairs so this chair rack isn't used w...hen we are traveling. However, once we reach our destination, we put our chairs, as well as our grill stand on it when we go inside for the night. It keeps the chairs clean in case of a rainstorm and keeps them in our camp in case of a windstorm. No more chasing them down! A simple bungy cord around them keeps them safe and in place. I also use it with a circular clothes line to dry towels, etc. I am finding more uses each trip we take. I highly recommend this rack to any one.
I wanted a rack on the trailer ladder for holding chairs while traveling. My concerns were that the chair bracket
would interfer... with being able to get to the roof, when needed and have to be removed and reinstalled each time
involving tools. I found the bracket very simple to just hang over the ladder when used and lift off when not needed.
I even use it to hold the chairs in the garage, when we are not traveling. In the garage, I just hang the bracket on a
vertically stored extension ladder and the chairs hang there ready to use. I'm not seeing any deterioration of the
finish, but not certain how it will hold up in the long run.
We finally purchased a nice high end pair of lawn chairs but found them two large to fit in
any of our compartments easily and w...ithout getting them dirty and dinged up. Our only
alternative was to hump them into the motorhome and put them in the shower stall. We did
this for a season and it was a real pain, the chairs we purchased are large and heavy and
getting them inside was such a hassle so we purchased the chair hanging bracket and the
cover bag. The hardest part is lifting both chairs in the bag with the bracket already attached
through the chairs and bag up high enough on the roof ladder to clear the break lights
(which is pretty high up). The bracket is plenty strong and while the bag is not water proof it
doses keep the chairs clean. I put three bungee cords around the hung chairs and we are
good to go!!
I have seen others with the racks and wondered it they were a good idea. Yeap, they are. The new oversize chairs are impossible to... store but hang easily outside. I hooked mine high so chairs are above the bikes on a trailer hitch bike rack. i strung a stretch cord around them just in case, other don't.
This was a winning purchase. We travel to beach in our RV and had been storing our beach chairs inside the RV. This meant that eve...rytime we put the chairs in the camper we would have to brush off all the sand and find a place to store them without damaging the interior. We're not tripping over them anymore or tracking in sand. Now we have a spot for the chairs and the inside of the camper isn't cluttered. Who couldn't use more storage place in their camper!
Went to Alaska via Canada with ladder on back of 5th Wheel. Just want to say that IT
NEVER MOVED with bungees holding it on. Hal...f-way we placed folding chairs on it, also.
Again, never moved. Even when went over the mountain to Chicken, AK.
We hated hauling our zero gravity chairs to camp because they are so heavy, large and cumbersome! Our basement storage was not wid...e or high enough to store our chairs and we did not like the idea of putting them inside the RV. Saw this item and knew we had our solution! I ordered two thinking that three chairs would not fit on one rack - I was wrong! Our three full size zero-gravity chairs fits on one rack! With bungee cords to
keep the chairs from bouncing and a locked bike cable to keep them from walking off during storage, this rack solved our chair storage and transport issues. I now use the other rack in my garage to hold our ladder and hoses. If you have a ladder on the back of your camper, you have to have at least one of these!
Works very well for chairs, but a little hard to get bikes on and off very easily due to the fact
that all bikes have different ...frame designs. Would be better suited for 24 inch or larger
bikes. Rack fits perfectly on the ladder and bungies can easily be used to secure it from
slipping. Nice rack for the value.
So far the rack is working great. It fit just right on the roof ladder. I hang an 8ft aluminum
ladder on the rack and so far no ...problems with the rack holding up to the task. The only
reason I gave it a 4 is because to date we have not put many miles with the rack in
service. I expect it will hold up to the challenge.
Works well, looks nice. Only thing we have found we need to do is secure items onto the
rack and ladder. We tend to travel less ...than smooth roads and the jostling sometimes
disrupts the chairs we have on it. Simple and quick fix with a bungie cord.
This item is great for chairs or a step ladder or a small and/or light bike, but I would be very careful with adult bikes. We almo...st lost two bikes, (One was a lightweight Schwinn) due to bending of rack. Also, you need to be cautious of scratching the back of your camper.
We used this rack to hold two zero gravity lounge chairs to the back ladder using two locking nylon straps (non-ratcheting type). ...The rack tilted to one side slightly because it is not "square". My husband needs to try to straighten it, if that's possible. You don't notice that it's not square until you put weight on it.
Although it held our 2 chairs fine, I don't think it would hold more than 2 zero gravity lounge chairs or 2 bicycles. I think more that than would be too much weight and will stretch out the metal at the top.
Pros: Easy to use, Inexpensive, Easy to secure to ladder
Maybe, it depends primarily on the weight of the wheelchair as item# 27584 has a weight capacity of 40 lbs. Also how compact the wheelchair is since there is about 10" of space for an object to hang off item# 27584.

Can rack be attached to bike?

I ride my bike to the beach. Can this rack be attached to the bike rack to carry beach chairs?
That is mainly due to the weight restriction of 40 pounds. Some mountain bikes do not have a full vertical post in front of the rear wheel, which is needed for mounting on this rack.
