When you camp in a teardrop trailer, your living room is the outdoors so your "recliner" should reflect the ease of nature and keep you comfortable as you sit in the sunshine or by the campfire. My husband and I have gone through our fair share of camping chairs and have found each of them to have their own pros and cons.
Currently we have two very comfortable loungers from Cabela's that we bought on sale. I have fallen asleep in them numerous times and they are great for looking up at the stars. However, they are super heavy and awkward to carry. They also take up a ton of room in the back of the car.
Right now, I am on the lookout for two new chairs that will not take up so much room in the car. I do like the Alps Aluminum camp chair from the Sportsman's Wharehouse. They are comfortable and do well in front of the fire as well as at a table. Most importantly, they are lightweight and fold up much smaller than the loungers. Unfortunately, they don't have that great foot rest.
Every few years or so, we will teardrop camp with some friends from Florida. We drive to meet them a state or two away from us and they fly in to meet us. This means we have to bring their camping gear along with us. They tent camp during this time, so we bring two easy-to-pack camp chairs that you can get at Costco, Target or Wal-Mart. These types of chairs are light and convenient, easy to fold up and store and they sometimes have nifty cup holders. However, they are cheap and tend to break apart after four or five camping trips.
What are your favorite types of camp chairs for teardrop camping? Where do you like to purchase your chairs and are there reasons why you choose one type of chair over another?
