I usually have two nylon-webbed folding lawn chairs (yep the old fashioned kind) along. Lightweight! That's it!

I carry two Zeros and two bag chairs.

Zeros stay with the trailer, bagged chairs for when we go some place and know we will need them or for a couple of visitors.

Wait for her to go shopping or something and then loose the extras.

We carry 4 rocking chairs, get 2 out and leave the other 2 in the basement drawer. We also have 2 zero gravity chairs we leave home due to the weight and space. Would sell both of them cheap but if we get no takers, will give them to the oldest son when he comes home from Anchorage in Oct.

2 zero gravity chairs and two bag chairs. We used to have more bag chairs but they wore out and I was waiting for a sale. Oops I missed the sale. We get by and we are a family of 7. The picnic table, cooler, ground (ok the rug) usually works for us.

Honestly this is one of the biggest reason we bought a TT and not a 5ver. I have a topper on my truck and all the extra gotta have stuff goes in there.
We carry 2 large zero gravity chairs and 4 extra folding chairs plus 2 bag chairs. Just in case. Party at our site!!!!!

This will probably hijack the thread, but I see how everyone has a zero gravity chair in their RV, it seems. A good one is hard to beat, and I lost three by default to females.

The first one I had, and was also the first one in our camping group several years ago, I ended up bragging on how comfortable it was. I let one of my friends use it, and she pretty much laid claim to it for the entire weekend. I just went ahead and told her she could have it, and I would get another. (Came from Sam's Club)

The funny part of this story is, when we were packing up to leave, her husband came over with his wallet in hand. He asked me how much for the chair, which I thought was odd, since I had gave it to his wife. Evidently, she had forgotten to tell him that I gave it to her, and she just loaded it up in their basement storage. Rather than argue with her over it, her husband was trying to keep peace with everyone and try to pay me off over on the side, since he thought she was just taking/stealing it. Once I refused the money and told him it was a gift to her....you ought to have seen the relief on his face. We still laugh over that one to this day.

The replacement for my gifted chair, then got taken from me by my own mom. We live beside her, and during a family firework show one evening, I pulled the chairs. including the gravity lounger out of the camper so family members would have a place to sit while watching the fireworks. Mom ended up in the gravity lounger, and to this day, it's up at her house, where she sits in it while reading or knitting outside.

My third one (second replacement), my daughter laid claim to. It no longer resides in the camper, but she allows it to get loaded if she is going to be attending also.

I did end up with a fourth LSU one as a gift to me, that everyone knows is mine but it's not near as comfortable as the ones from Sam's Club.

WM, we are not far apart and need to meet someday!

I live next to my aged mother as well! Talk about a challenge. And my daughter is here visiting from Colorado Springs and heard the discussion about this thread with me and DW and said "I can help get rid of two of the zero gravity chairs if you want, I'm leaving for home in the morning".

I never said I would get rid of TWO of them. They are uber comfortable! But I don't see the need to provide another two to guests............I use them when I'm not visiting, and have a newspaper over my face. They're not really conducive to guest visiting.

None of which matters to DW. So I guess we'll have lots of chairs if anyone needs one.

P.S.
You can't hijack any of my threads. "Going off on a tangent" is often where I pick up neat tidbits. I know, it's not how this place works........but it fits my scattered brain well!!!
