The present home page picture of the Roach's fine camp set-up has finally driven me to admit my chairs just don't cut it. I've been making do with the cheap folding cloth chairs, and they just aren't very comfortable. I need a pair of good quality reclineable chairs. So here's my question; what are the best chairs you've found, and where can I get a pair?

I love my Lafuma recliner folding chairs. There are many knockoff versions of these chairs, but IMHO they are not quite as comfortable. The downside is they are very pricey. I believe you can find them at various online stores.

I live near a Lafuma office that has outlet sales a couple of times of year, so I got mine for an extremely low price.

kat has that right! They're now about 1/2 price from what I paid four years ago (but worth every penny then!). Mine is a zero gravity recliner. One caveat... the recliner is heavy. So, if you're at tow limit you might want to really think about it before spending the bucks.

This is one of many websites, pays to shop around!

FYI... We've been able to give two Lafuma recliners away at the Oregon Gathering in July for the past two years, thanks to Gibbs RV in Coos Bay!

Cam: I have two LaFuma recliners as well as two of the Zeller's knockoffs. The LaFuma is much better quality and is lighter. I purchased both LaFuma's here in BC, from my local RV dealer. The dealers are now stocking a different brand with a lower price tag. I would phone around the RV dealers in Winnipeg.

HI,
We bought our Lafumas at their own on-line store, and were delivered really fast!
The one's without padding are lighter, and dry fast if left out in the weather. We LOVE them.

If you're looking for a very comfortable folding chair that is light weight and stores easily, Zip Dee makes one of the finest chairs around. I have really enjoyed ours, but we sold them with our last trailer. The fabric matched the awning, and it just wasn't right to keep them <sigh>.

I'm considering buying another set. The... um... wide-body model is $100, and the narrower standard version is $91. The currently have a special that they'll send you a leg extension that turns them into a lounge chair free with the purchase of two chairs. That is usually about $50.

Here's the link to Zip-Dee Inc. website, and the monthly special.

Heavy.
Awkward to set up.
...but oh so comfortable, they recline too, and have built-in cup holders.
