Ratchet strap or bungee cord them together. Maybe back to back.

I thought maybe there was a method of strapping them so they don't scoot and get torn up against the door or cabinets. ??

They won't fit except one stacked upside-down on the other.

One with back on floor and the other with back up on top of the one on the floor with a rug between them and strapped together.

2604s chairs

Another issue we've noticed is the screen on the rear window is "poked out" from the left corner of the back of the chair closest to the door banging into the screen.

2016 2604ws

We have the same chairs in our 2016, we actually took on of the chairs out and put in the house for safe keeping. My wife likes the couch and I like the chair. I added some plastic guards to the back of the chair that protect the back edges from the little table in the corner. Our first trip in rubbed on the edge of the little table and cause a small hole in the covering. One thing to note the swivel mechanism is mounted on a solid piece of wood on the bottom of the chair which is great until you mind out the wood is only stapled together and the more you set in it the more it squeaks from the staples pulling out. I totally rebuilt ours so it is great now. Glue and screws did the trick, also spoke to FR about the quality of manufacture of the new chairs. while I was at it i also put some slider material on the feet to make it easy to slide around and not scratch the flooring.

We just use the factory straps and turn it sideways against the back wall and strap it down.

Our 8529IKBS has two recliners at the back wall.
It has factory tie downs at the bottom of the rear wall with a tie down strap attached to them with a buckle in the center. We put the two recliners back to back, bring the strap up over the arms and fasten where the backs come together. No rocking and no moving when traveling. But for extra insurance, on the one recliner, we do put a pool noodle over the lever (which faces the wall) just in case.

Good information everyone. We are looking to upgrade to a 2604WS and was wondering about this.

Our trailer is at the storage lot, but I do not think we have any strap or hooks to attach it to.

We called Rockwood customer service today.

I would like them to tell me how they expect an elderly retired person to lift an 80# chair and turn it upside down on the other chair without injury.

BTW....Don't let this sway you in your decision to buy this model trailer. Although disappointed with the after sale communication from the dealer where we bought the trailer, and the poor design idea of the large chairs, the overall quality of the trailer is good, and we are happy with the purchase.
