Lawn Chair Covers

Have a chair rack on my Forester roof ladder. Wondering what you guys use to cover the chairs to keep them both dry and clean. It's the kind of rack that looks like a bike rack with the two legs perpendicular to the ladder.

I've never known anyone that uses any kind of chair covers. Most people use foldable camping chairs like these:

We have a seasonal site so we have regular patio chairs on our deck, but we just leave them out all summer and store them in our shed over the winter.

moving down the road with a cover on could be risky...
a small cheap blue tarp wrapped around with several bungees holding it might work, although I might look for something heavier and canvas...
covering them while parked is, well why would you do that?

For the past 6 years I've been using Large Nylon Laundry Bags, 30 inch x 40 inch from Amazon. Seller is Laundry Bags Online.
I use one bag per chair, and I also hang them from the rear ladder using a ladder chair mount carrier.
Slip a chair onto the rack, and from the bottom up I slip the bag onto the chair. The bag cinches up nice and tight. Keeps all the dirt/grime off and pretty much water resistant. Run about 10 bucks each in asst colors.
I carry 2 chairs on my rack, and after covering them with the bags, bungee them to the ladder by running bungee's top to bottom and side to side.
6 years now and have yet to have one "blown off". Still using same chairs that are also 6 years old. Bags also will slip over the larger "gravity" type chairs.
I recently took advantage of the companies lifetime warranty and they sent me two new bags after one seam started to unravel. Didn't even ask me what I was using them for, just sent me two new ones.
