Like most people here we own or have owned several different kinds of portable folding camp chairs, bag chairs etc...none of them are really comfortable but it hasn't mattered until now. We have downsized to a smaller trailer that has a so-called jackknife sofa which is unbearably uncomfortable and can't be removed. If We could discover a folding chair that is truly comfortable that would solve the problem. We just need something we could sit in for 2 or 3 hours. Note: at this point we are more like "camping in an rv" than rving and that sofa is atrocious...

We broke all the cardinal rules of camping last week-end ... we stayed in a motel! OH THE SHAME! But also learned something. Swimming pool patio furniture is VERY comfortable. It's just not collapsable.

I have to ask what keeps you from removing the sofa? Mine went right out the door in my Jayco.

Look into a Zero Gravity Chair. Amazingly comfortable.

To remove it would uncover the top of the grey water holding tank which is a few inches above the floor...so that one could not use the vacated floor area to place a recliner or better chair....also exposes the slide motor and a lot of wires (that problem could be solved)

O usually sit on a saw log. Not that comfortable but totally recyclable and I don't have to pack it up either....

You could have a carpenter build a frame to cover the water tank, get some good quality 6" foam, and upholster some cushions for it. Have the back of the frame angled so it's comfortable to sit on.
