That's a difficult one to answer. Depends on your age, how you like to relax etc.

We have been through plenty, but having bad knees and someone that enjoys a pint. I prefer to sit up straight in a camping chair and one that has strong arms that I can put my weight on to help support my knees when getting out of the damn things.

I'll post a pic later.

We bought 2 chairs from Donagheys in Letterkenny, they're 'Royale' brand I think, similar to the ones in pic below. We find them very good.

Ditto with the Royal. Although they are quite heavy to bring in the van

We have those (saw them in a B&M style store recently for £19.99 each) as well as folding chairs which can also recline, slightly heavier duty than the ones you get for £5.99 each

19.99 ?? Thats a great price for those Kampa Forte 180's ....... Best price I've seen them anywhere was 48.99 each in Camperite..

We have something similar, made by Kampa.

Very comfortable for lounging about in, but not great to be using at a table for eating.

They look the dogs bits John. Do they fold up or fold flat.

That's the shape we prefer, fold up nicely and FB's can get out of them easier.

They fold flat Dave...They are a wide seat and can hold over 28 stone ( reason I got them :-/ ).....They also fit perfectly in storage area under seat. When were back in business you can get a good look at them :up:

Mine are not made by Kampa, I got mine in Argos a couple of years ago for similar money as the ones in B&M/Homebargains. I have also bought a couple of clip on trays which hook onto the legs and allow you somewhere to set a glass/tin plus phone etc

Similar to these https://www.amazon.co.uk/MTS-C…368&sr=8-5

I got those too when Wish first came out, £1 each or something like that.
