Talking chair

Oops, forgot to say what kind of chair do you have?

Will have to send you a private message to give you my e-mail address for a picture.

It is not necessary to put a chair as large as a Lazy Boy to be very comfortable. We recently removed our sofa/storage unit in the '97 Excella 25 and installed a pair of Ekornes Consul Chairs. http://www.ekornes.com/usa/stressles...sless_stol.htm They are very comfortable and don't overwhelm the space. Another consideration is going to a smaller than the Lazy Boy, wall hugger model easy chair like the Barcalounger St. Claire or Barcalounger Abbey. http://barcalounger.com/products/index.html These look like normal somewhat smallish rocker easy chairs, but when you pull the lever, a head rest slides up into position, the foot rest lifts up and the chair assumes the shape of a recliner. They are quite comfortable, can be placed right up to a wall and still work as a recliner, and in my opinion, the Barcolounger has one of the smoothest operating mechanisms in the business. Again, they aren't going to overwhelm the space. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

Chair

Bob, thanks a bunch for the information. I will check into the info you gave me.

I have been gone since 8-12 and just came back home yesterday and read you message.

I really hated to put a big chair in there because it would take up so much room.

there are two barrel chairs on ebay from an older motorhome. These are easily bolted thru the floor with drilling four holes and using bolts thru the bottom. Could be recovered to taste. I found them two days ago., and guess what they are in Tennessee!

Unhappy barrel chairs?

Gosh, I wonder if they are comfortable enough to sit in and read for a spell?

That is what I am wanting one for.

Also I would hate to put holes through the carpet and the love of my life, Mariposa!

I will check it out though, appreciate your post.

my barrels are quite comfortable, though no lazy boy. I recovered them in leather like stuff that matches the captains chairs.

We had a chair like that in our second AS TT and two like that in each of our MHs. They are VERY comfortable.

The new owner of the TT didn't want the chair, so we kept it. It sits in our home office because it is so comfortable for sitting and reading!

The problem with the chairs as shown in the ebay ad is that they need to be bolted to the floor, so you can't move them around.

Red face chair

Edie,
Are you talking about an Ekornes' chair?

I am having a time finding a store near me within 100 mils that sells them.

Will keep trying to see what I can find.

I am just afraid the chairs eBay would not be comfortable to read in for any length of time.........and that is what I am wanting. I read to keep out of trouble, try not to roam the camp grounds causing trouble. lol

The Swopper - Relax the Back Store

Here's a thought. Very expensive - but if monies no object you could fit a couple of these in a trailer without removing the couch no problem. I sat on one of these a couple of times and they are very comfortable. Joe

Swopper

May I ask a personal question?

How the heck did you come up with such a name as "barkingspider"? All the spiders I have ever come into contact with did not bark. In fact they were rather quiet, especially after I stepped on them.

The picture of the chair is a bit confusing to me, I will have to check into this. It does not come across when I pull it up to well. But probably a good idea, since $$$ is a big determining factor in what I buy. I do like to eat too. Not just sit and read.

Thank you though for your message.

TNSue

Maybe ...

I worked for years with a bunch of Vietnam vets. Any loud, gassy, emission, would always be blamed on a barking spider that they claimed inhabited the lab but was never seen. They claimed it only came out in the dark.

Every time I see his handle, I think of those guys.

Talking Well!

Thanks John for the lesson. This is the first for me but it is always good to learn new things and interesting facts.

I can always bring this up over the camp fire at our next Rally south of Chatanooga. Wish you could attend, you might enlighten us more on the subject.

Sure glad I ain't around these guys. I don't care for spiders day or night and at night you can't see them.
Well, I guess you can hear these...........................lol

Wonder what would happen if I google that? Think I will try.
