I have a sunny patio where this foldaway line now lives, it's smart, tidy and easy to use. You can fit more than a load of washing on it at once and I'm really delighted with it. When not in use it folds away quite small and with it's cover on, is not ugly and annoying when you are using the patio for more sociable occasions. Tip: (obvious) load from the back or washing will be slapping you in the face! A great purchase and good value for money.
