Since I use web chairs I do not bother fiddling with a cover. Most of the dust just falls off and I occasionally hose them down, at least when water is available.

It's quite easy for us to just put the chairs inside the TC and pull them out first thing. Or put them in the back seat of the double cab.


Geewhiz, the last thing I want are chairs rattling on the back seat. I already use that area for my archery target, luggage and some other bulky items.

Putting them in the camper is also not acceptable. Next trip I will be driving several days and 2500 miles to my first destination. I want to be able to pull over, use the rest room, cook meals and even take a mid day nap. At night I do not want to put the chairs in a Walmart, truck stop or rest area parking lot. When I do reach my destination, I will be hiking and sight seeing most of the day and I will probably only use a chair maybe once a week.

Thanks, but chairs belong outside and the brackets make that easy.

My chairs didn't come with covers but one of Costco's fifty gallon garbage bags works great...

I carry mine in the back seat of my extended cab, along with my step ladder and no rattling. I run the outer seat/shoulder belt right across them and click them in. Last thing I would want is to be in a rollover and get killed by a flying chair or ladder.[emoticon]
