Twelve Days of Christmas: The Tailgate Sling Chair

December 12, 2008

OK, so we’re not aware of many things more useful than a barbecue pit or a hoops backboard attached to your truck’s trailer hitch. But then, on our way out west, we skimmed through the best catalog you can shop from at 35,000 feet—yep, Skymall—and found the perfect accoutrement to your weekend of exhaust-soaked nirvana.

Now, at long last, you can “be the king of the tailgate” with these trailer-hitch sling chairs. You’ll hang like a freakin’ Christmas ornament from the back of your Ranger in these steel-frame jobbies that attach to any standard-size trailer hitch. Pop a cold one, sit back, and wait for the stadium gates to open—or just whistle tra-la-la in your driveway while Junior mows the lawn.

We’d say this thing’s perfect for Father’s Day, if Father’s Day weren’t six months off. Oh, and pardon us for pointing it out, but the guy on the right looks like he might exceed the chair’s weight rating of 250 pounds. We’re just sayin’.
