“The Chuck Bucket is the ultimate trailer hitch ski rack: It’s easy to use, quick to install, and provides many options for securing your gear.”
You’re probably familiar with similar vertical style ski/snowboard storage systems as seen on resort shuttles and gondolas but now there’s one available for purchase for your personal vehicle.
The Chuck Bucket was prototyped by engineer/dad who wasn’t satisfied with the struggle of storing his family’s gear on traditional roof mounted racks going to and from the mountain. He prototyped the design by bolting a 5 gallon bucket to a cheap bike rack and refined the design over a couple ski seasons before debuting it on Kickstarter where it was fully funded with $64,691 pledged.
The system simple to install, tilts back to maintain rear entry to your vehicle and holds up to 8 pairs of skis or 4+ snowboards. The Kickstarter campaign is closed but you can still pre-order a Chuck Bucket for $319.00 HERE.
