Get em on sale.


We do have 2 in the rig but rarely take them out. I find them a complete PITA to haul around. Big and bulky. We much rather our captain' chairs.

Nothing better than a short nap after doing the tourist thing for much of the morning and a good part of the day.

And no better way to enjoy a barley pop after dinner.

I'll take an "Amen" there brother!

If you're looking for a decent "camp" style chair, you might take a look at these. They get some great reviews. I've never owned one, but I've sat in one and was pretty impressed.

Too upright for lazy afternoons and post supper for me, but to each his own.

I have two different style and brands of folding camp chairs that get used for grand kids sports and what not because they are light, but they are not for long term sitting and lack any adjustment but we can attach a clamp on shade umbrella from Bed, Bath and beyond.

DW & I have a set. Love em! When they first came out they were something like $120 each. Fortunately we found them at Sam's Club for $40! The model we have came with pillows and a pull out tray with drink holder.

My only complaint (if this IS a complaint!) is their weight. These are NOT the chairs you want to tuck under your arm and walk 1/2 mile to the river with They are stout with a good metal frame, so they make wonderfully durable camp chairs!

Got 1 wide, 1 regular from cabelas on sale. Think it was less than $100 for the pair. Very comfortable, very heavy and a pain to stow and unstow. The wife won't leave home without 'em. I live and breathe to serve her every whim and desire ;-)

We have 2 and they're comfortable but TOO HEAVY. I would love to find a couple of vintage aluminum folding chaise lounges instead. They'd suit our needs perfectly.

Zero Gravity Chairs

The original chair is Lafuma. When the patent ran out they started making knockoffs. If you don't want to spend the the big bucks for a Lafuma ($170 to $270 last time I looked). I recommend you sit in as many as you can before buying because though they look the same they are different. Your size and weight will make the difference in how each one fits. Good luck -

I bought Sam's Club chairs - they fit me best of the the ones I sat in and they are rated to 350 pounds

We picked up two gravity chairs from Camping World last summer and love them! Some friends of ours have gravity chairs and after sitting in their chairs we decided we had to buy our own set. We picked up one smaller chair for me and a larger one for my husband. They are the most comfortable chairs and perfect for naps. Like others have said they can be awkward to carry, we do not carry them far so really not an issue.
