Depending on where you are in NC and your trailer, we can build you a roll out drawer and make it real easy to get the chairs, table, etc. out to where you can access them real easy.
It sure made my life easier.

I've got actual build photos of it. The hardest challenge for me is cutting a straight line with the tools that I have. I ended up using one of the 2xWhatevers and clamped it down as a guide. Then it was just some pilot holes and screws.

I know that OC looks down his nose at other solutions and feels his is better. It's definitely less bulky and nice that they slide out, but I am happy with how mine turned out. I really don't need it to slide, I just set stuff in on the edge and slide it back into the shelf. No fuss, no muss.

Au contraire my friend, I don't look down my nose at anyone's mods. If it is good for them, it tickles me to death. I just happen to be lazier than most folks and can't crawl into my basement or lift things like I could when I was younger. I have to do things as easy as I can or otherwise I couldn't/wouldn't be able to go camping.

Thanks for the offer OC but I like the shelf better because it gives me more usable space above the chairs. DHs argument is he doesn't have the right tools.... well Christmas is coming may be it's time for a table saw?

Interesting for us - and other 8289WS 5er owners: the Zero Gravity chairs will store vertically in the basement - we put our 2 chairs on the right hand side next to the toilet drain to the black tank.

It depends on which chairs you have

Some of the wider ones do not fit upright in storage .....😞

Only takes a 5/16" nut runner/screwdriver and about 10 minutes time to mount.

I just throw my chairs in the back of the truck bed. I don't care if they get wet. My 8289WS has limited storage in it. Oc built me a roller shelf, so I didn't have to crawl in and out makes life a lot easier on me. Why waist that on chairs.
