I've done a search on here and have read which brands are "preferred". I was hoping you guys could help me narrow it down. I can't seem to find any at local stores so there will be no testing prior to purchase.

- Lafuma's - nice but very expensive.

- Faulkner - seems like middle of the road on price but couldn't find many reviews. This brand I can get through my RV dealer with a 15% discout.

- Infinity - Can get a "2-pack" of these on amazon for $120 total. They seem much cheaper than some of the others but I wonder if they are comfortable.....cant find many reviews on these either.

Edit: I AM aware of many of the other brands.....I've just narrowed down to these 3 brands. I'm leaning towards the Faulkner brand unless feedback encourages me otherwise.

Any suggestions? Recommendations appreciated.

We sucked it up and popped for LaFumas about 6 years ago...They are still a favorite part of our camping...

I have 2 LaFumas - Don purchased the second one because I forgot my first one and left it home one trip to the RGV and he didn't want to hear me cry because my favorite chair was home!!!!They are 10 & 11 yrs old and I love them!! I just restrung the older one and will do the other pretty soon. I definitely vote for LF over any others and I have tried several others!


See ya' down the road!

Seems LaFuma is a fave ... do they make them in a lightweight model? I am buying new chairs this season as well and been trying to get opinions.

When we got the rig I got one LaFuma because she liked it. That was followed by a $50.00 special the looked similar from a sporting goods store. There are also 3 or 4 assorted other chairs which make the trips. Upon setup the chairs come out and the one first taken by the dog is the LaFuma, always. They are not light or cheap but we don't backpack with them and after almost 6 years I have only bought it once. Try them all and get what you like.

Big Sur,
We have 2 Lounge Lizards from Travel Chair, kind of in the same class as the Lafumas, meaning they're expensive. Ours were about $100 each on sale at REI about 8 years ago. Still like new after heavy use.

Having said that, the best advice I can give you is SIT IN IT BEFORE YOU BUY! The reason I say that is we shopped around for a while before I bought the Lounge Lizards and stopped at a sporting good store that had some lounge chairs on sale for $39.95. Since this was much cheaper that chairs I was looking at, I stopped in to check them out. I sat in the floor model and found it to be the most uncomfortable chair I had ever sat in. In fact, it was so uncomfortable I had to get out of the chair quick! We were in REI the next day and happened to pass by the Lounge Lizards. One test drive and we were sold. In fact, we didn't want to get up!

You're gonna spend some quality time in the chair, so find one that's comfortable for YOU.
