    Won't last long

    on 27th Aug 2015

    I bought the Chesapeake playset 3 years ago for my kids because it had great reviews & seemed very sturdy. I especially liked that it had a high weight capacity for the swings (I didn't want the kids to have all the fun on them--LOL!). Initially, one of the critical wood beams was very split so they had to send me a replacement, then the replacement turned out to have just as big of a split so they had to send me yet another replacement. Fortunately that one was fine so I could rehire the guys to come assemble it. After about a year, it started getting wobbly even though we tighten the screws every few months like is recommended. It's now been 3 years & it looks like it's a decade old. It is peeling/cracking like crazy (& we do stain it regularly) & I hate to watch how much it wobbles back & forth when my 9 year old swings (& he only weighs 63lbs, so it's still not a lot of weight). All in all, I wish we could have afforded a Rainbow playset or waited longer to save up for one because this is very disappointing. At this point, we can't afford to buy a new set after everything we spent on the last one & we worry that unless we got the super expensive version the same thing would happen again. :-(
