Costco variety I spotted - pretty comfy and I think it's longer than many others making it close to the size of the lafuma XL - pretty comfy I would say based on a quick sit

So far so good and the "kids" seem to be enjoying them as well!

Just curious has anyone looked at the new rockers that are out there. I noticed LL Bean has nice one so was wondering if anyone tried it and if so any thoughts on it.

Thanks

They are aluminum and seem to fold compact and can double as a stool (rated up to 200 lbs they say)

My first couple camp stools I bought (lafuma) are fine but cannot double as a small table well at all and these do.

Think you will like them. We have long used these for a variety of tasks while camping they work great. We have not used them as seating.

Picked this up at WM on an impulse buy - mostly for home use for my son but we will probably bring it camping and try it out

It's pretty comfy actually even for me -

30 bucks

Walmart sells these in the camping department for about $18. We have one and use it all the time.

Bean bag material - it really is comfy!

Thanks for the Walmart tip - I'll see if they have them cause the Amazon source is on back order and will not arrive till projected July

We have two of the aluminum tables--bought at Walmart. Used them camping for the first time back in April. They proved invaluable. Whole family was there, so cooking for and feeding 10 people. Extra tables got moved to wherever needed.

I have seen a plastic version of these as well, but what's not to like about aluminum?

If you don't find them at the first Walmart, try another store. I find that some carry them in the sporting goods camping section and some do not.

ah, I see...its a different brand - "Ozark Trail"....thus the disconnect.

I am going to check this one out today and compare as I want these before my trip in 3 weeks ideally. THANKS AGAIN!

OK, I'll chime in. Chairs; I found some folding camp chairs (not Chaise) at Sam's , $32.00 that fold very compact and comfortable with side table. Table; those folding aluminum side tables are compact and sturdy; I bought mine at CW about 5 years ago nad as good as day I bought them. For the larger table, I now have a folding 6 foot table bought at Menards for $29.00. It folds inhalf and has adjustable legs (24, 30 or 36 in height). Grill; I have the Coleman 3 in 1 gas for emergency use. When camping, we like a wood fire or charcoal due to taste. I use different varieties of wood depending on what I am cooking. I also carry one of those "GRILL MATS" that can be used with gas, charcoal or wood. It can be used on a campfire pit using the attached grate.
Just my 2,3,4,5,6, cents

At Wally World - they only had one at location near my work and noted weight limit 60 lbs vs 200 lbs for the ALPS brand - the ozark is a tad more expensive too - I'll hold out for Amazon delivery - unless I find something o like more locally

When we first started with our first trailer, a Casita 17', there was no room for recliners in the back of our 4Runner and I didn't want to store them in the trailer. We had camp chairs that folded up into a bag that could be stored easily.

Now that we have an Airstream and a pickup truck the DW wanted recliners. We picked up a couple from Costco. They recline and have small swing out tables. While nice they are a pain to store since they don't fold up into a slender bag. I have to lay them flat in the bed of the pickup because of the tonneau cover and take up a lot of bed floor real estate. After a year of using them I finally figured out they should be located in the rear of the bed against the tailgate so they are easy to remove and put back quickly. They are the main reason why I wouldn't consider another truck with only a 5 1/2' bed.
