Outdoor Living Area

Hello all! I am looking for the right place to make a post. We are planning some extended trips in our class c and would like to know what y'all are doing to create an outdoor living area.

Not really sure what we had in mind, just wanted some feedback on existing posts and pics.

Outdoor rooms, awning extensions, tables, lighting, couches, chairs, water fountains, etc.

A chair and a fire works for me.

Guess I'll jump in on this and say 'Welcome Aboard'.

As for an outdoor living area, you'll have it as soon as you set up and relax for a few minutes.
About all we need (or what we carry) is a couple different styles of folding chairs (NOT umbrella chairs!!), a couple of small folding tables, an outdoor mat and a couple of those smudge pots to put citronella oil in. We aren't living there, we aren't into glamping ~ a lot of extra stuff is just dead weight to be hauling.
If you have an awning, get a couple block screens which attach to the awning. They will come in handy.
Camp a few times, meet folks and see what they tote around ~~ not the seasonal sites, but the campers.
Above all, have fun & enjoy.

The block screens sound like something to look into. Thanks.

Again, my mind was in gear, but the fingers weren't cooperating.
I'm speaking of sunblock screens which you can see thru.
Not total view block screens.
The sun blockers can reduce the direct heat of the sunshine quite a bit if your awning & door happen to be facing the wrong way sometime. They attach to your awning and can be removed very easily.

I put out carpets that extend the length of my awning (18') a table and some chairs. If I need more shelter, I've got a popup. I also can rig my ramp into a deck, which is a great spot to sit in an easy chair with a glass of whiskey and watch the sun go down.

We are really happy with our Poly Lawn Mat - and we carry a couple of very cozy "director" style heavy duty steel frame lawn chairs. If your outside time includes campfires, having nice fire tools (shovel, tongs, pokers) is a good call.

We are somewhat bigger people. We splurge cargo-weight-wise on padded folding rocking chairs, plus directors chairs. We do carry a Coleman camp chair for the dog I am fond of folding stools that can do double duty as seats or tables.

I bring a folding aluminum table to place a UCO three-candle lantern and often skip the fire.

While I have a 9'x12' outdoor rug, I hate it, so have been bringing these handy mats
