Outdoor recliners

I searched, I really did. I know that I've read about this sometime and someplace during the past year, but my pathetic searching ability hasn't unearthed a thing.
We want to replace our reclining loungers with something that will lock into different positions. Does anyone have a favorite?
Kicking back in comfort has a high priority in our Airstreaming dreaming and we'd love any input.
Many thanks.

When Cabela's opened in the St. Louis area, they had recliners that look like the Lafumas at a great price. $64 for the wide-a$$ models. Only used one season so far but they've held up well and everyone that tries them likes them. I don't think they're always available, however.

Lafumas

And WE bought Lafuma brand on Ebay.. Gary's is a nice blue upholstered and MINE is a black mesh.. which gives you a waffle butt if you sit too long, but it dries faster than his from rain :-)

Got two of these a few weeks ago. Got ours at Walmart for $50, in solid color. Very very comfortable. Smoothly reclines to any angle. Each arm-rest has a friction type lever to lock in a position. I think max weight is 225lbs.

I purchased mine from the Lafuma website directly. They are a terrific company making fabulous chairs. Free shipping.

Costco.com (or costco.ca for Canucks) also sells some for good prices.

There are lots of chairs out there that look like these- I'd check to see what the materials are made from. The Lafumas are made with Sunbrella fabric for instance - very durable, uv resistant, etc...

We bought a couple at Camping World last year. We tried the ones Ron and Debbie (str8stream) had at Casini last year but they were we thought too pricey. So we tried the $50 sale ones at our local hardware, Wal Mart, K Mart and so on... so we went to Camping World and waddyaknow their good ones were on sale. I think we paid $130 - $150 for both. We are happy. If you haven't found ones you like we'll share ours (a little) with you at Casini soon.
Neil.

Thanks so much for all the great resources!
Neil, we'll try to arrive at Casini with our own kick-back accommodations, and promise not to pull the chairs out from under you. But we appreciate the kind offer!
