The dinette booth, couch, and chairs in a 1995 Allegro Bus are very comfortable-

Elery, picked it up yesterday. I have been testing it out today at the house. So far it is proving to be very comfortable. Photo includes some other goodies I picked up at Camping World near Foley. Not sure why my photos keep coming out up side down.

Nice - it does look to have a comfy design - and I suspect it will fit in front storage compartment if some airstreams

After a season of use make sure and report back

I tried several different ways to rotate the photos. They look ok when I download them to Airforums. Once I hit post they show as up side down. I even purposely loaded them up side down and they still came out that way. I'm stumped.

I have a Lafuma gravity chair that would make a great camp chair. I use it on the porch in the summer time.
They come in an array of fabrics and colors, the best part they come in XL. I am six feet tall and appreciate a chair I'm not crunched up like a preying mantis on.

The XL if you are above say 5-10 or so it really shines

I think on Amazon and other places they may make some in a larger variety but so far it's rare

Enjoying mine as we speak with kabobs on the grill here in Destin (Henderson beach state park)

Also - it's worth noting that based on my experience over last weekend at the beach - I am through with my beach chair

The helinox chair sinks in the sand but eventually settled in - I probably will add tennis balls to the ends but even as it was it was awesome for the beach - I carried the beach back with chair in it with the only 2 lb weight addition - wife carried her beach chair with included backpack straps which was fine but I am so sold on this little chair

I would say that the dinette booth and sofas in most good quality motorhomes, 5-ers, and trailers are fairly comfortable... for about 15-20 minutes, anyway.

But sit on them for a full evening (like 4-5 hours) and the term "comfortable" becomes quite relative. This is when a good quality furniture recliner (not talking about camp recliners) makes the dinette booth and the sofa feel a bit more like a stone bench, than "very comfortable".

The Villa sofas in our 2011 HR Endeavor 43' diesel pusher were as comfortable as such sofas can be. And, again, after about 15-20 minutes, a good quality recliner would put them to shame for long-term relaxed comfort for watching a movie, surfing the web, relaxing, or... sleeping! Same goes for the sofa and the dinette in the new Airstreams.

The sofas and dinettes that come in RVs are fine for cocktails and a meal, but when you want to relax for the evening, or the afternoon, or the morning... they can't hold a candle to a good leather recliner.

We removed both sofas from our Endeavor and replaced them with furniture quality recliners. Spent 1 1/2 years full timing in that diesel pusher and we were every bit as comfortable there, as when we were at home... with the recliners, that is.

Our 2016 30FC will not have a sofa; we're ordering the recliner version (but without supplied recliners), and will put in our own choice of recliners. We will replace the mattress as well. I'm confident that with a pair of top quality recliners and a top shelf mattress, we will be about as comfortable relaxing (and sleeping) in the Airstream as we are at home. That is our objective, anyway.

Why spend $90k on a trailer and feel like you're "roughing it"? "Roughing it" is what tent camping is for.

I hope all of the rave reviews of the Lafuma chairs are correct. Look what you started PharmGeek...
