Creative Solutions for Zero Gravity Chairs?

Anyone have a creative solution for storing zero gravity chairs? We seem to have limited space for these large chairs in our storage bays and it's a pain to get them out of the area we have them. I looked at the Camco over-the-ladder storage hangar but question whether it would be strong enough and/or what it would do to the ladder with the jostling around. Anyone have anything that's worked for them?

TIA,

Debby

Wish I had a better idea. We did get the bags the have for sale at Camping World for each bag. Then we put them in the front storage area. The bags kinda keep them more contained and easier to move around but they are much larger than the chairs and kinda add to the space they take.

The chairs sure are heavy and bulky but man they are comfy.


I also bought one of the ladder racks for chairs and carry my waste tote on it. Just strap it up with bungies and ratchet straps. I would have no worries about carrying a couple of chairs on it. Seems decently strong to me as long as they were strapped well enough to not move. .

We just laid ours on the bed in our old TT. Now I carry they in the back of my truck which has a topper on it. I have a bedliner that holds 2 X 12's crossways and then a carpeted piece of plywood for a pullout storage shelve. Works great and I can now store twice as much in my truck and not have to crawl in it to get things out.

I use these to carry a ladder on my ladder. Secure it from moving with bungies or other straps.

EDABEUT, a photo of your slide out would be nice.

If you have a tt you could rig some sort of rack to store them on the a frame/tongue near the front of the trailer. My thought is something similar to the bike racks you see used on the a frame.

You might consider a bumper mount bicycle carrier to store the chairs on. Use a bungee cord to hold them tight to the carrier. If you have the spare mounted on the rear of your trailer, look for an over the spare mount.

Don't know what TT you are running, on mine the big compartment is under the bed slide and I can fit 3 O Gs a couple director type chairs, a few folding tables and the leveling apparatus, mats, door mats and other minor stuff. My guess would be 150#. The second small ext. access compartment is under the dinette bench. If that gives you some ideas

I either sit something heavy in them or chain them down

When we had our travel trailer, we carried them inside. Simply slide them in between the leg on your booth dinette. Ours had to go in a certain way or they wouldn't fit but once in place, they rode really nicely. Didn't take up valuable space and they were "secured". You might try & see if this works for you.
