I think you will enjoy them. I have 2, one for 4 years and the other just one year. I have enjoyed both. The oldest is padded and the only downside was the time it took to dry out when it got wet. the other is a mesh but have not used it much since the weather has been chilly at night.

You likely will be pleased - and if not return them

And of course check back in after a season of use and update us

They are a bit unwieldy but they are simply a staple for our trips now

Wife finished a book last weekend and said she loves them

The only thing that bothers her is that she forgets the things move - she does not lock in the position - then she moves and it moves and she freaks out and feels as though she is falling and let's out a bit of a shriek -

I rarely bother with the locks - if I choose a position - simply remaining fairly still and I stay in place perfect - wife agrees - it's a user error in her case lol

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'm on the couch now. I sleep on the couch. It is comfortable.

I have the padded version Lafuma but wish I would have purchased the mesh. The soft cotton fabric is fading fast.

I recall your feedback about the fading a while back

That plus more difficult to dry made me second guess and get the mesh

I have been lurking around this chair thread for some time with amusement and bemusement....wondering how there could be so much interest in camp chairs. But tonight we went to REI for hiking shoes, and there on display (along with an xl zero gravity number)......was a chair that got me excited....my dream chair......a folding mesh seat rocker! I would always rather rock when relaxing ...only thing better is a porch swing. This works as an outdoor chair because it sits on a stationary rail that lies flat on the ground....and the movement comes from pistons under the back of the seat. So the rocking isn't digging the chair Into the ground or carving ruts. i am not sure how it is accomplished, but it gives a nice smooth motion. I have already requested one for my birthday!

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

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.
