Anyone heard of Skychairs?

Years ago I purchased a "Skychair" at a local Renaissance Festival. This is the most comfortable lounger I have ever sat in. I eventually came up with a rig to mount into the hitch receiver on my truck to hang the chairs for tailgating in style. I recently manufactured a similar mechanism to mount under my awning on my 5ver toyhauler and seems like Im in paradise when relaxing in them now. Take a look at this and let me know what you think!

I see Im getting a few views here but no one seems to be giving any opinions. I made the mechanism on the side of the camper with a pivot point so that it can be adjusted side to side a bit to avoid being in the way of the back door or to move into or out of the shade of the awning. I was pretty proud of my ingenuity here and was hoping for some comments to either boost my ego or at least tell me that this is the goofiest redneck idea anyone had ever seen. lol

I prefer the Coleman folding chairs. Open chair, sit down, pop top, drink beer. Looks like you have to climb "into/onto" that thing.

They are very comfortable. We have seen them at every Pirate, Renaissance or Medieval Faire we have performed at or been to.

I have one, used to have it mounted on the aft deck of my boat but have not figured out how to mount it from the motor home. You work has inspired me but I am not sure I have the equipment or the skill to follow your lead.

Does the wind blow you around? I'm especially curious how they ride when someone is driving the truck.

If you have consumed a few cold adult beverages, its really not that bad til the driver slams on the brakes!
