nice recliners on sale

We received our recliners today from J C Whitney. They are Del Mar recliners, a near-perfect Chinese knock-off of the very comfortable La Fuma recliners. On sale for $40, a significant savings over the price of a La Fuma. The color is California blue, which looks bright on the Whitney site's picture, but they are actually a navy blue. Construction looks good and I can't tell the difference in comfort. Great for RVs. We're pulling out the couch in our Tradewind and using these in the living room, with four other folding chairs in the truck for when company comes.

Thanx for the tip. I looked at them on the JC Whitney website. They look very nice and the price is right. I also read the customer reviews on them, and they were most favorable.

Ive seen these around too (Cabela's I think) but never sat in one. I see rock is not too big on them but they sure look comfy. Might have to plop down next time and try for myself. I'm sure tired of getting my hind end stuck in those cheap folding jobs.

Looks like the one I got from walmart for $50 last spring. Two years of nearly continous use and it is like new. Most comfortable lawn chair I have ever used. I may buy a couple more just to have them.

Me too but the expensive ones come from China too made under different specs. They will make it as good or cheap as we ask them to. That is the part that kills me when we assume since it cost more, it was made in the USA. That's my dream but reality is different. As I reach down and look at the inside tongue of my $80 The North Face shoes. Bigger than Beijing, it says made in China.

I try to buy American made goods when possible. I don't realy care if 200,000,000 Chinese have jobs, but I do care about U.S. employment. No job, no money. No money, no gas. No gas, your AS suddenly becomes a cabin in your back yard.

Just a gentle reminder that this is a thread about where you can buy a chair if you want to.
