What Are Buyers Saying?
Rio Brands Cart
The first beach caddy we examined is manufactured by Rio Brands- it comes in blue colorations with rugged wheels, featuring an integrated tote bag with a shoulder strap, and a reinforced steel frame.
It has a 100-pound capacity- equipped to transport up to 4 beach chairs and a 48-quart ice cooler- this all means you can transport a good deal of stuff for a sunny day beach side. This beach wagon is designed to be pulled rather than pushed- it's assembled by clipping on the wheels.
- Buyers say that it's relatively easy to pull through beach sand- this is because of it wide wheels that rotate smoothly- you just need to tilt it back onto the rear wheels.
- One reviewer who is the patriarch of a large family employs it whenever he and his kids sojourn to the local bay on Long Island.
- In essence, he praises its tool-less assembly, its capability of maneuvering over soft sand, its large storage capacity, and the fact that he can handle all of the beach accessories on his own using this mobile transportation solution.
- Indeed, he is found he can pack it with a cooler, a beach umbrella, four different chairs, towels and all of the plastic toys his kids love playing with at the bay.
- Other reviewers say that it is a cost saver- instead of renting a beach wagon for 15 bucks.
The second option we examined was the collapsible beach wagon provided by Mac Sports- it comes in a camouflage, blue, black, green, pink, red options with some that even include a side table.
It's marketed as a particularly spacious option that doesn't require any assembly to get up and running with a 150-pound weight capacity built from rugged 600 D fabric. The handle is adjustable to make transport easier for individuals of different heights. Not just a beach cart, it's advertised to anyone looking to haul a variety of items outdoors.
- Buyers say that it goes across sand pretty well and deals with gravel easily.
- Another reviewer who lives on the coast that has to deal with soft sand whenever he travels to the ocean- he's found that he can strap more items to it using a bungee cord and that by fixing and umbrella to it you can add some cooling shade which is useful to protect drinks from melting in the sun.
- Another buyer disputed it's efficacy for beach trips saying that the wheels were really not up to snuff for transporting through heavy sand because of their thin design.
Rio Brands Wagon
The third option was another Rio Brands beach wagon- it's marketed as an all-terrain option that features detachable wheels and a 100-pound weight capacity. A foldable option, it's engineered to work on a diverse amount of areas including graveled sidewalks, wooden docks, wet grass and soft sand.
- One buyer was impressed- he tells us that because the rear wheels are the ones that work best in the sand, you'll have to perform a turn and pull so that just the rear wheels are moving through the sand.
- A head of the family told us he packed it with towels, a cooler, chairs, an umbrella , kids floats and toys, finding it an easy mobile transportation solution.
Rio Brands Caddy
The fourth option was yet another Rio Brands brands solution- this is a beach table cart that features a table top board with integrated cupholders and also includes a bungee cord for strapping on more items.
- Buyers were, for the most part, impressed, saying that it helped drag lots of equipment through the sand, though the mesh bag that's included with the cart wasn't useful once the it was loaded up and squished for space.
- Because its folding bars lock, it does have a pretty solid weight capacity- functioning as a rugged caddy that was pretty wind resistant once you positioned it the right way.
The last beach caddy we examine was the Tommy Bahama option-it's advertised to store a 48-quart cooler, four chairs and various accessories.
- Some buyers who live by municipal beaches and often visit the water on their own without assistance from friends or family tell us this is a solid solution if you want to spend the day getting some rays waterside.
- One buyer said it was easy to pull, that assembly was simple, but did experience some problems with the front wheels.
