Camping furniture. It's all over, but we need special stuff that fits within our weight and size limits here.

I want new chairs. NOT the heavy foldy canvas ones that mold in a drizzle. Yes, they come in festive colors, but they are a pain to pull out of thier equally moldy bags, set up and so heavy!

I want webbed aluminum chairs. The kind we all had 20 of in our garage. One fold out from it's almost envelope flatness. WALLA!!!! instant bottom placement. No folding, no stuffing, no draining, no sneezing.

Ones that were so easy to find just a couple years ago. Everyone had them, from Home Depot to the corner grocery store. At about 7 bucks each. (Oh, to have a Fred Meyers here.. I bet THEY have them!)

The kind that weigh, oh, 3 oz.

Try finding one now!!!!

Did they go out of style and I just not notice? Is it a California thing? I haven't looked in Oregon, as lawn furniture, no matter how cheap and easy, is not on the NTSB pass list for airport security. (I haven't actually looked, but I bet they would make a new rule right on the spot)

I have one left. (The dogs ate my others) Anyone have a source? Here is what I found on eBay

Now they are "Vinatge"... and expensive!!!

We can't deprive Coca-Cola of their valueable aluminum cans just so we can sit down, now can we?

Hi Gina

We had two of the aluminum chairs with the webbing.. Bonnie and Taoward have been looking all over for them and they were at our home Friday night... Guess where the chairs are now. I think you've got it...

Yard sale or flea market. They practically give them away. I almost bought 4 aluminum with redwood slat seat and back. Very retro and light. $20 for 4 at an antique dealer. (gone the next day) I guess we're all getting old...er.

How FUN it is to be on this forum and meet iconoclasts! In the re-decorating of our scamp, I not only wanted, like you, aluminum/ plastic, easy- clean, lightweight, foldable chairs. But they also had to be the right COLOR! LOL

I did find some at our local hardware store- white painted aluminum frame, blue "webbing".

Gina, lightweight, easy to set up...perfect! I am getting old and I do know it!

These are the perfect items for a box of some sort at the front of the camper, no?
The ones I have scratch up the camper terribly when they are inside when I'm on the road. They fill up the trunk and I just think they should go in a plastic box outside.

Any ideas from all you that do use these chairs on a box that would work outside?
Cheers!
Gigi
