Comfort in an Airstream

I was really hot on getting a vintage air stream but was looking and they didn't look that comfortable to set around in what have some of y'all done to make them more comfortable

Some people remove the stock dinnets (sp) and couches. Hard to beat an old Lazy Boy for comfort.

The built in seats in most any travel trailer aren't comfortable for me. I use a good reclining office chair that has armrests and headrest. Not quite as good as a Lazy-Boy but very close, and takes up less room. The wheels are nice too, just lay it face down when on the road. The problem is finding a trailer with the room for a good chair. Haven't figured out where to put the wood stove though! Leland

If it was me, I'd use a comfy zero-gravity lawn chair, that can be used indoors or out.

In fact, that's exactly what I use as a recliner at home. Easier to move for cleaning the floor, too.

Look for a model where you can remove the furnishings that are uncomfortable so it leaves an empty space in front. Then you can put anything you like in there. Sofa, recliners, love seat, futon, lawn furniture . . . your restriction will be what fits through the door, and weight and balance.

we replaced our gaucho with this home theater seating from Big Lots, $600. Much better. There is room for the fold out tables too.

Thinking of pulling out my curbside dinette seat and cabinet in my Classic 25fb and putting in a Lambright Wall Hugger in matching Ultra-leather.

Lambright recliner

Looks great guys! We used regular TV trays for two years with our recliners until we found these. Not as pretty, but the feet slide up under the chair and they adjust in height so you can get the tray over your lap. No more dribbles on our clothes. We got ours at Bed Bath and Beyond in black.
