Surco Ladder-Mounted Chair Rack

Surco's ladder-mounted chair rack attaches to the vertical supports of your RV's ladder instead of to its rungs so that it can fit a wider variety of applications. In addition, the rack arms have a unique, built-in pivot feature that lets you swing them away from the ladder. Now you can maintain complete access to your ladder - as long as no lawn chairs are mounted at the time - with no need to remove the rack.

Surco Ladder-Mounted Chair Rack Swing Away

To pivot the arms of your rack to the side, simply remove the pull pins from the top brackets of each arm, swing the arms out and replace the pins to secure. Now you have full use of your van or motor home ladder. To use the rack, pivot the arms back and secure them in place in the same manner.

Surco Ladder-Mounted Chair Rack Clamps

The arms of the rack attach to the ladder supports with sturdy, secure clamps that hold the rack firmly in place, eliminating the bouncing and jostling that can occur with racks that simply hook onto your ladder. Just attach the arms, individually, to the 1-inch-diameter posts of your ladder, and you're good to go.

Video Transcript for Surco Vans and RV Lawn Chair Rack Review

What's up, everybody It's AJ with Today we're gonna be checking out the Surco Lawn Chair Holder. It's gonna go on your ladder on the back of your rig or even your van. You're gonna attach it on there and then you can hang up your chairs, strap them down, and you don't have to find space for them in the basement doors or in the inside. Let's check it out. Taking a look at the arms themselves, they're made out of a heavy duty aluminum.

They're even rubberized here on the portions where the chair sits. You don't have to worry about them getting scuffed up, and it just helps with better grip. You can see me pushing back and forth. They're not easily moving anywhere. So we only have two chairs on here right now, but it can hold a total of six and has a weight capacity of 50 pounds, so just make sure you don't exceed that.

So there are some things to think about when you are gonna hang your chairs up here where you're gonna mount the arms. You do want them up and out of the way of your bumper if you had one down here, way down here. Luckily our ladder is in the center, but another thing to look out for is your ladder is more towards the side, you wouldn't want to cover up the taillights either. We have the straps up here up top. Really easy to run those through, pull them tight to keep the chairs in place, another thing to help them just not move back and forth a whole lot.

We'll move the chairs to take a better look at the arms themselves. The strap, just pull back on it a little bit, feed it back through, and remove it. When they're not in use, you can just put the strap back through the buckle. Now we are mounting these to the ladder, we don't want the ladder unusable 'cause you might need to get to the roof sometime. So you have the pins up here up top, you just pull that out and then you can turn the arm to the side.

That way they're out of the way and you can go all the way up the ladder. One thing we did notice is on this side, this bottom portion wasn't quite big enough for the pin. So I maybe recommend getting a drill and drilling out just a little bit more so it can slide back down. The other side worked just fine. Make sure you only put chairs on here, lawn chairs is what it's rated for. Again, the weight is only 50 pounds. It can hold six chairs, so just keep it around there. You don't wanna overload this and cause any issues. Now we've talking about what it is and what it's for, let's talk about how to install. It's not too bad depending on where you wanna put this. On the ladder, you have some brackets and screw them from the back. Check out how I did it. Starting the install, I've already installed some of the brackets. You're gonna have to hold up the arm and get that. You're gonna have the back bracket that goes on. It's not threaded, but this portion at the front is threaded. So we're gonna show you on this one over here, hold it into place. It comes with the Allen wrench that you need to do this and I'm just gonna get it hand tight, so I don't have to hold it the whole time. We'll get that one started and we'll do the other one on the other side. And it comes with the Allen wrench you need to tighten them down. I would try and do it evenly, you don't wanna tighten one side down all the way, so just go back and forth until it gets on there tight. Now once you've set it up, you can either leave it the arms at the side, that way it's out of the way, you can access the ladder and climb up, or you can get it ready for the chairs and just line up this slot with the hole in the side and then throw your chair up there. Overall, I think it's a good idea to add it to your rigs just to carry some extra chairs that you wouldn't be able to fit in the basement or inside. Now, this one is the Surco one, compared to the Stromberg Carlson one. That one only holds four chairs and the insulation is a little more difficult on that one just because it has bolts and nuts that you have to run through. So this one, you do have to hold that bracket in place, but it's easier to have that one threaded side than trying to fit a nut on there too. I think that's about it though. Thanks for hanging out. I hope this helped..

This rack gives me the best place to store my folding chairs. I use less undercarriage storage, easy to get to and re-store. This took the hassle away from looking in the under Compartment and struggling to pull them out. A must have. Easy install and good quality. You'll not be happier and will not regret spending money on this.


This is a well built device for hanging camp chairs on your RV. Easy to install although you have to be careful which side goes where as there is a Left side and a Right side.
I mounted my unit directly to the back of my camper as there is no ladder. It was an easy installation. The brackets easily hold two folding chairs, three might be a tight fit. I only had one problem that was nothing to do with the design or anything, and that is when you drive your RV on dusty or muddy gravel roads the chairs will get very dirty and will have to be rinsed off when you get to your destination.

After a year of use? Just fine! No issues. . . may even be Covid 19 proof!


Good solid product and will make a difference . Quality item. One little mounting challenge/- the screws attaching the bars to the trailer ladder face outward, away from the trailer . As such, I had to lay on the top of my trailer roof extending my hand downward in order to insert and then tighten the screws with a wrench.if the screws faced inward mounting would have been a snap but this engineering goof made installation awkward .


nice product but a few comments.
product change would be to tap the bracket that goes on the back instead of the one on the front so when mounting you can install allen keys from the back, instead of reaching around to the coach side of the ladder to stick the allen screw in from the back.
I was hoping I could get our four recliners on the rack but the arms aren't long enough and after loading three which just fit, I decided that I didn't trust the stress on the ladder with the weight bouncing up and down as we go down the highway. Not sure if I'm going to keep it on the MH.
For lightweight chairs 2 or 3 it would be great. It is really well made overall.


Product works as designed. Our trailers' ladder is mounted in such a way as to make its use very limited.


It does what it is advertised to do. I would purchase another one in the future.


Well made. Easy to install. Straps would be easier if they snapped closed


works great, use it on my fifth wheel.


Great items, just as seen on website, everything arrived quick and in great shape.


As expected and seems to be a very sturdy and well constructed item.
