Our Favorite Chairs

 Our Favorite Chairs

One of the most asked questions we get has to do with the portable chairs we carry around with us in our RV for outside seating.

We carry four of them.

Two of them are the Pico Telescoping Directors Chair. They were the very first accessories we bought for our Roadtrek when we were just starting out in 2012. Mike selected them because of how small they are. Each chair folds down to size of a laptop. They are made of breathable nylon mesh and polyester fabric and have scratch free nylon-coated feet. And they have a beverage holder and a side pocket.

They set up and become regular-sized outdoor arm chairs. They are probably the first thing we bring out when we set up camp. And, yes, they are surprisingly comfortable.

We know a lot of fellow Roadtrekers have also bought them after seeing ours, so we are obviously not alone in liking these chairs, despite the fact that, at about $100 each, they are certainly on the expensive side. The high cost is no doubt because of the way they telescope down so small.

There are two more chairs we also now carry in our RV.

They are Zero Gravity Reclining chairs, typically sold for around pools and patios. Mike and I call them out “look at the sky chairs” because they let you recline way back.

They take up quite a bit of room, and might be too big for some RVs.

But as for us, we wouldn’t think of heading out anywhere without bringing these chairs as well. You can get two of the models we have from Amazon for $98.

But check Walmart as we’ve seen them on sale from time to time for considerably less.
