Bob, did you see Per Walthinsen's solution. He owns a Burro and the cabinetry is molded in just like your Egg Camper: Comfortable seating, achievable?

Great idea but we also need something for outdoor use. I ordered two Strongback chairs today. We'll try them out before we head to Texas on Feb 15. If we like them we'll keep them. If we don't like them, we'll return them. I guess we're kinda grasping at straws. This wasn't an issue with our 31 ft Kodiak with two Lane recliners but the Kodiak is going to be sold in the spring. Our typical snowbirding is over. Instead we're going to be in and out from home 2-3 times per winter for about a month at a time. We've had enough of going somewhere warm and parking for three months.

You may want to consider a Coleman Comfortsmart suspension chair. They can be found numerous places and allow one to have his or her feet on the ground/floor, if that is important to you. I use a zero gravity chair for napping or in the trailer the back of a La-Z-Boy for "stadium seating." I call the last one a La-Z-Nette. For a footstool, a tote with a pillow works pretty good.

Just for fun.
You could always go with the kingpin chair because when you've got the smallest camper in the campground usually you need the biggest chair...lol This is me sitting in front of my camper.

You sure get a lot of looks and comments when you're sitting in this in front of one of our little eggs.

I use the Ace Hardware version of this for outdoors - very comfortable, and while I rarely use the awning while camping, it is handy for lawn concerts in the sun. I don't believe they still sell it - on their web site is a different version. This one folds into a 4" square rectangle and the awning becomes the carrier.

For the Escape, I've added a West Marine High-Back Seat. Ridiculously expensive like anything related to boats, but very comfortable, adjustable, and will even work well at a picnic table. Since I've set my 4 person dinette up permanently as a bed, I use the chair at the small front table. Much more comfortable than the stock cushions.

Jon,

I looked at that same chair and was almost ready to pull the trigger, but went in another direction. Glad that you are getting good use out of it in your Escape.

Yes, on the expense of items related to nautical vessels. Read another post recently that said B.O.A.T. stands for Bring Out Another Thousand.

That being said, my wife is getting the boat itch, but our kayaks and metal canoe have served our aquatic needs for many years, so I'm sorta dragging my feet on that topic.

I sure did a Double Take or better when seeing you in that thing the first time!
Kind of reminded my of Humpty Dumpty?

I think I may need one now.

Have you ever approached them about a possible solution.

I approached Scamp about a more considered solution and got no response but certainly there is a market for a smallish trailer designed for two travelers wanting a little comfort. Maybe the EggCamper people would be interested.
The way Eggcamper molds are made, the raised (seat) parts are molded in. So are some other parts that dictate the bathroom location and such. You won't see a different layout offered in the (low production volume) Eggcamper. Not saying that they aren't nice the way they are, of course.
