Great idea... good looking seat,

I need to make one for my 4 wheeler. Fold up model. Cover with a corn sack so it is not so obvious as to what it is.

Are you producing these commercially? I know at least two people that would buy one of those. Can you make mine with the soft padded seat? :)

That would be a nice thang to have. Ill tell you have made fun of people who were holdong on to that limb and it broke and well u know the rest.

Now that is plumb slick. I know you would get some looks if you left that thing on the back while running the roads.

Is it tall enough to put a 5 gal. bucket under to catch the residue.(sp)Great idea for the woods.

So much for the TailGate feeder instructions i thought i was going to see on this thread.

Definitely a nice thing to have though.

I have a suggestion to improve on your design. Add a toilet paper holder. Then start advertising and watch the orders roll in!

Gallon paint can and a lid with a good tight seal......:D

My nephew made one for me years ago as a gag gift, but it really is useful.

Also gets you all kinds of looks driving down the interstate.

I've said for years I'm gonna mount a foot rest to it, but never have. Then you really could us it to corn roads..... :)

That would be a nice addition ... and if Dale builds one, I'm sure it'll have the mandatory beverage holder too! :D

Someone actually marketed the "Bumper Dumper" about 10-12 years ago. I have no clue if they are still in business.

As soon as I posted, I searched it on the net. Sure enough, http://www.bumperdumper.com/bumper2.htm they are still selling them.

Not too take away from your invention, I think it is great. Our Academy sells the portable folding one for about 5.95. However, they do have a 200lb weight limit and I am sure it would sink real quick on wet ground.Also it would hard to add a drink holder and magazine rack. I think it's time for a movement. Gotta go.

Devin, That wasn't a gag gift. I figured y'all could really use it. :) V hasn't ever even taken his off the wall. I put toilet paper holders on y'alls didn't I?

I wonder if you could use this as a rear bumber protecter for those higher end models(escalade, denali, etc.)

I was thinking the same thing!:rolleyes:


It could come optional as a headed seat that plugs into the trailer light plug.

For ADA, you'll need a grab bar. :D

I had a little time on my hands so I drew this.

I know for a fact that these do NOT hold 290lbs! :rolleyes:

The bottom left corner of that web site shows that over 1.6 million people have visited that web site...

Looks like they are made around Houston with the 281 area code. They even offer tee-shirts.
